Why is it always about the MONEY. These developers and Councillors will only open their eyes when it is too late and all the green areas are developed. Remember the saying " We did not inherit this earth from our ancestors, we are borrowing it from our children". Leave this area as nature intended and we and our children can all then benefit from watching endangered species rise up again and flourish.
I support this cause because of the Verreaux's Eagles that nest in this area. If this area is developed they will have to move away... This area is far more attractive at the moment with its open areas and the Eagles than it will ever be with a whole lot of new townhouse developments!
I got to go with this ,as there is already enough taken from nature.
However unless we use these areas we will lose them. Nothing strengthens a developers cause than veld land that is filled with vagrants and avoided by everyone. The greenies need to develop BMX, MTB, 4X4 and horse trails in these spaces otherwise they will lose them.
Love to see horse trails through our area
Il do anything I can too support animals
If you want to have a great city then you need to have public open space. And what more beautiful and unique public open space can you get than the beautiful Witwatersrand Ridges? So don't build on them, keep them for a future city for all. They will enhance Mogale City like Table Mountain does for Cape Town, a beautiful wild place in the city.
I lived in Krugersdorp ...actually Weltevredenpark near Chamdor the Loius Luyt Brewery..nw SAB...and walked a great deal in this area which is precious to wildlife and future citizens..
How sad to consider the extinction of another species.
The old saying. .if it ain't broken why fix it. Why? Do greedy people with plenty of money want to spoil the natural environment for more gain and more money and spoil everything for the working class people like you and me . How do they sleep at night.
Support my cause please
WE need to look at the Ridge Policy which forms part of the Environmental Policy from 1989 and sub amendments. Other ridges are being threatened by development too, such as the Rietfontein Ridge which is a conservancy and the home of Free Me Wildlife Rehab centre. Please oppose the extension of the K60 road through the Nature Reserve.
