Herewith the link to the appeal in this matter:

Please see correspondence below from Chris Willemse, the Chair of the CBCRA, on the proposed development of a 101 room hotel on the beachfront. Should you feel inclined to support the call to action plan, please contact Chris directly on

Please find various docs and correspondence regarding the Beachfront Hotel:
(The full City Planner's report is at the bottom of this post).

The MPT decision was to be expected, as it approves virtually all applications regardless of how inappropriate and ghastly they may be.

However, now the serious side of this matter starts, if the community is up to it.

The next step in the process is to appeal the MPT decision to the Executive Mayor’s Planning Appeals Advisory Panel (PAAP).

The CBCRA would suggest that we start a fund to contest the matter - given that there were over 70 objections to the application and the fact that it will be a monstrosity on the beachfront.

It would be preferable to retain an attorney to do this and the CBCRA recommends Leon van Rensburg, who has successfully represented the community in a host of other matters.

Initially, the fund would only have to cover his costs - so maybe a contribution of R1000 each to the fund.

Branch code: 201709
Account No: 62062797934
Reference: YOUR NAME and Beachfront Hotel

There is only a period of 21 days to appeal, so please advise as a matter of urgency if you wish to proceed as suggested.

Please also forward this mail to other affected parties.

Further, please advise urgently if you received an official copy of this Decision Letter from the City - either by registered mail or e-mail (if you agreed to such service).

Failure on the part of the City to advise you of the decision would help tremendously in opposing this matter.
