Extend objection period

Russel Cameroon, Zeekoevlei

I wish to bring to your notice, firstly, that the residents around the immediate vicinity of the proposed development only became aware of the proposed cell tower on July 4 through an article in the Southern Mail (“Cell mast not welcome in Zeekoevlei”, Southern Mail, July 4).

That said, we need the objection period extended for another 30 days to accommodate our objections.

These towers are and would be a health hazard and it will upset the sensitive ecosystem and bird life, as we border the Rondevlei nature reserve.

We are very disturbed that no public consultation or interaction has taken place regarding this issue.
