Dear Sir / Madam
REMOVAL OF RESTRICTIONS ACT, ACT 84 of 1967, and APPLICATION FOR DEPARTURES ito LUPO

FILE REF           LM 6053 (233652)
APPLICANT       TRACY NORTON
ERF                   2377
LOCATION        19 HOUGHTON RD
SUBURB           CAMPS BAY


The CBRRA objects to this application on the basis that the removal of the restrictive title deed condition is effectively non-specific and therefore cannot be in the interests of the community.

It must be borne in mind that the Western Cape High Court ruled, in the Camps Bay Ratepayers vs. RBC Sub Eleven matter (reported), that the Minister shall not remove restrictive title deed conditions if it is not in the interests of the community (Griesel, AJ, as he was then). Other divisions of the High Court have handed down similar rulings.
Notwithstanding the above, the CBRRA is prepared to facilitate discussions between the affected neighbouring parties and the applicant and if such discussions result in conditional, or otherwise, acceptance of the proposal, the CBRRA will withdraw this objection.
In the alternative, the CBRRA requests an interview at the appropriate Sub-council / SPELUM meeting that will convene to consider this application.
Regards
