The Environmental Impact (EI) process has begun for the development of the Cape Vulture Wildlife Estate, which proposes building 360 stands of half a hectare each on a farm in the foothills and escarpment of the Drakensberg mountains.
The farm neighbours land where the third largest colony of Cape griffon vultures in South Africa have nests, and is about four kilometres north east of the JG Strydom Tunnel.
The developer is Monteriva Investments 12 (Pty) Ltd. The developers say that they are not anticipating any environmental problems in the impact assessment process. The houses are intended to be clustered on 500 hectares of the 1580ha farm, and will be sold as full title stands.
About 17km of road networks will be established on the farm. Water is expected to be obtained from boreholes and the developers are planning to build a sewerage plant.
