Coastal Dunes Stabilisation at The Waves, Keurbooms Strand
HilLand Environmental, independent Environmental Assessment Practitioners (EAP) have been appointed by the Applicant, The Waves Home Owners Association, to ensure compliance with the regulations contained in the National Environmental Management Act (NEMA, No 107 of 1998) and the Environmental Impact Assessment Regulations, 2014 for the proposed coastal dune stabilisation at The Waves, Keurboomsstrand, Plettenberg Bay.
The applicant wishes to construct “sleeping” revetments within areas in front of the Waves complex that have undergone serious erosion due to storm and wave action. The dune is to be reinstated and vegetated on top of the “sleeping” revetment and the protection works will only be visible during extreme beach erosion cycles after which they will undergo maintenance activities to reinstate the dune on top once more.
All registered stakeholders / I&APs are invited to comment on the proposal within the 30 day commenting period from September 2018.
