good grief man, we have enough malls!!!
We don't want another mall, the area has three in a close radius and the development threatens the livelihoods of all the local shops and businesses. Developers take your plans somewhere else and leave our vlei alone!
The Vlei is definitely worth saving. We must have these areas of natural beauty to pass on to our children. There are enough malls. Build it somewhere else I say.
It's the same thing all over the world, profit before people and disregard the environment.
It is unthinkable that a wetland vital to biodiversity in this area can be destroyed. What short-sightedness can justify wiping out a non-recoverable natural resource of this importance!
We recently found that there are Leopard Toad Tadpoles in Princessvlei, proving that this is a vital breeding site to prevent the loss of this species! The land surrounding the vlei also has great potential for restoration of sand plain and wetland Fynbos, both of which contain many threatened plant species. Great work has already been done by planting shrubs and trees where they want to build.
Surely water preservation is more inporatnt than shops.
Besides all the great times we had at the vlei, we owe it to Cape Town to show our stewardship of the vlei. Sign the petition please.
Save Princess Vlei for the next generation.
