Chapman’s Peak must be saved from toll plaza eyesore
THE GREATER Cape Town Civic Alliance salutes the Hout Bay Residents Association for its stance in opposing the building of the toll plaza and office block on Chapman’s Peak.
It’s amazing how politicians who threatened all kinds of wrath on the developers in election campaigns now arrogantly proclaim that the spoiling of one of our country’s most beautiful landscapes will “go ahead”.
Perhaps Weekend Argus could publish the architect’s impression of how this thing will look so that the people of Cape Town can get an idea of exactly what it is that they will be supporting by their silence.
We should also know how much of our local taxes will be used.
I hope their taxi friends won’t be sent to “get” me, but I can’t help being extremely frustrated at the attitude of our provincial government.
We need to save Chappies in all its beauty. What is next? Perhaps our “development at all cost” government will turn its attention to Table Mountain soon. Capetonians must be informed about the impact of this project.
