Residents have until 29 September to comment on the amended final basic assessment report for the proposed N4 Industrial Park outfall sewer pipeline, which will cut through sections of the farms Zwartkoppies and Mooiplaats.

In May we reported that this 95,5 ha park, planned at the Donkerhoek/Boschkop off-ramp of the N4 highway, will house vehicle service centres, fitment centres, home improvement centres as well as commercial, office and related retail facilities.

The park will be on portions 119 to 122, 240 and 365 of the farm Mooiplaats 367 JR, Barendshoek 630 JR and a portion of portion nine of the farm Donkerhoek 370 JR. The southern boundary is adjacent to the N4 Highway, and the Old Bronkhorstspruit Road (R104) forms the northern boundary.

Before development of the N4 industrial park is allowed to start, the necessary engineering services, such as the internal sewerage reticulation system and bulk sewer lines, need to be constructed.

The N4 industrial park development is located within the urban edge, which means that the metro council requires a formalised waterborne sanitation system for the development.

Other developments in the area, which could not be approved by the metro council due to a lack of sewerage services in the area, would also be able to go ahead if such a sewer line is built. Areas earmarked for future development as part of the Hazeldean Farm precinct could only go ahead if serviced by a bulk sewer line.

The amended final basic assessment report states that the proposed pipeline route passes through the following farm portions: Zwartkoppies 364 JR, portions two, six and 43; Mooiplaats 367 JR, portions 27, 125, 126, 239, 240, 241, 249, 250, 251, 252, 253, 254, 308, 309, 311 and 36.
