9) 16 SUB 27/07/20: MOTION OF EXIGENCY FOR RE-INSTATEMENT
OF THE PICNIC AREA ON CAMPS BAY DRIVE Desmond Baart
See email below from Water services after the completion of their project.
They have completed and prepared an area to the south side of the space for
similar future projects that will take place within the greater Camps Bay area.
The area has been used before for large projects by roads and other
contractors doing work for the City. It was agreed to have a designated space
for future projects that can be used. According to Jade, it will be unwise to
hard surface the area as it will be used for storage of different materials and
The rest of the area is part of zoned undeveloped open space and there’s no
irrigation and laying grass will be a waste.
It was proven that grass roots will redevelop and grow back and it’s our
intention to plant trees in order to keep away any vehicles. With regular
mowing the grass will be fully established within a short period of time. We
might even have to install post/rails depending on budget.
