  • Property development along the South African West Coast | DLIST Benguela
    financial gain How can one make sure that these economic and financial gains do not fall into the hands of a select few And who ultimately presides over decisions relating to sustainability The recent and ongoing discussions that have featured on the DLIST website have highlighted numerous controversial developments that have sprung up along the West Coast of South Africa Local communities NGOs and environmental practitioners alike have voiced their concern Some have even gone as far as to take up the issue with the relevant local authorities So far there appears to have been no decisive response What is clear is that there are a range of environmental management tools or processes that planners developers and decision makers should utilize before undertaking projects These tools range from Environmental Impact Assessments EIAs to Strategic Environmental Assessments SEAs Environmental Management Plans EMPs and the use of Integrated Development Planning IDP South African law has numerous policies and acts that can guide decision making and mandates participation of local communities and other interested and affected parties in the planning process However according to the users of the DLIST discussion forums a numer being residents in the most affected areas the available environmental management and planning tools have often not been considered Further local communities are not properly consulted The questions arise Are all parties well informed about the implications of coastal developments both negative impacts and positive growth Are all parties aware of the mechanisms available and are all voices being equally heard QUICK LINKS laws case studies in the news discussions library resources constitution other weblinks LAWS 1 ACTS National Environmental Management Act Environmental Conservation Act Air Quality Act Biodiversity Act National Water Act Marine Living Resources Act PDF National Heritage Resources Act PDF 2 POLICY Environmental Management Policy for South Africa 3 GUIDELINES Guidelines for EIA requirements PDF Guidelines for environmental management plans PDF Guidelines for golf courses golf estates polo fields and polo estates in the western cape PDF Guideline for resort development in the Western Cape PDF Guideline for public participation in the EIA process PDF 4 WHITE PAPERS White paper on sustainable coastal management in South Africa White Paper on Spatial Planning and Land Use Management 5 REGULATIONS Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism EIA regulations http www environment gov za CASE STUDIES case study Tierhoek IN THE NEWS Wind farm project Red card for tourism Projects threat to west coast villages DISCUSSIONS See the DLIST discussion forum Coastal Property Development along the West Coast of South Africa LIBRARY RESOURCES Knowledge Management Capacity Building and a Collective Approach to Sustainable Development in the Coastal Areas of the Northern Cape South Africa part 1 part 2 part 3 Brief overview of EIA for project or development in SA Guidelines on the Implementation of Regulation Pertaining to the Control of Vehicles in the Coastalzone CONSTITUTIONS Constitution of South Africa Constitution of Namibia OTHER WEBLINKS Municipal Demarcation Board South Africa www demarcation org za Demographics maps and profiles of South

  • Good news from Namibia | DLIST Benguela
    were lacking and the status quo spelled bad news in terms of the natural environment including the unique coastal biodiversity not to mention the lack of equitable use of natural resources including tourism opportunities The spectre of meaningful transformation to an equitable society and a sustainable coast seemed so distant like a dream to hard to bring to reality At times I really despaired The policy was officially promulgated in 2012 Now in 2015 we have been invited back to work on the tourism development plan for the Dorob National Park a major protected area that includes hundreds of kilometres of spectacular coastal areas It was established in 2011 The overall purpose as expressed in the Terms of Reference is to provide for present and expanding high quality eco friendly tourism opportunities through good planning zonation management and collaboration between the conservation and tourism sectors and to promote investment opportunities for all Namibians particularly those previously excluded from the tourism sector as envisaged in the MET s Concessions policy Now in 2015 all of this is possible Policies are in place frameworks are in place mechanisms for promoting equity are in place there is a park management plan and there is no reason why the upcoming tourism development plan cannot leave real tracks at ground level making a difference in terms of the national and local economy will full adherence to environmental best practise and promoting social equity the pillars of sustainable development We should also add cultural and heritage The lesson I am learning Big things can take time but one needs more patience than I had and know that irreversible progress for the common good can happen if there is a solid foundation that people have bought into So I take heart from what I am seeing here
