Chapmans toll case dismissed
An application to interdict construction of the R54 million Chapman’s Peak building in Cape Town has been dismissed in the Western Cape High Court
Judge Bennie Griesel said no order had been made as to costs.
The Hout Bay Residents’ Association and the Habitat Council had argued that provincial premier Helen Zille and transport MEC Robin Carlisle did not receive proper environmental authorisation to build the plaza, as required by the Protected Areas Act.
Both maintained that authorisation was granted under previous environmental legislation.
The respondents in the matter are Entilini, of which Murray and Roberts is a senior partner, SANParks, Zille, Carlisle and Water and Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa.
