“GATVOL” PETITION: Please sign by Sunday 3 April 2016
The Far South Peninsula Community Forum is dissatisfied with the uncontrolled development occurring in the Far South Peninsula and the lack of attention (iro infrastructure, Ocean View and Masiphumelele) being given to the Far South Peninsula by the City of Cape Town.
We are not against development per se, but we believe that over-development and extending urban areas into areas not previously zoned for development – without the necessary infrastructure and facilities – is one way of killing off the Far South Penisula. It is our unique mountain and coastal topography that is the driver of our economy based on tourism and recreation and we do not want this to be destroyed.
The FSPCF has launched a petition campaign – “Gatvol Petition”. The purpose of this petition is two-fold:
-to get across to the City, the DA and the Mayor how we feel in the Far South Peninsula about some of their decisions;
-to raise local awareness in the area about the huge negative impact that current and future development will have/is having in the Far South Peninsula.
