River Club development will destroy heritage

Monica Sutherland, Rondebosch

I sincerely hope that the developers of that monstrosity on the site of the River Club lose their appeal and that the new judge makes the same decision as that clever lady did when she refused it.

I see they are using the usual excuse about creating jobs, and yet if they were really serious then they would build that monster at a site that is nearer to where the jobless stay.

That site should be turned into a Khoi park where our indigenous people can plant their herbs etc and anyone can sit there and and breathe in the fresh air and learn a bit about them.

It seems that all our past is being destroyed, and soon there will be no need for visitors to come here as there will be nothing to see.
