Shark Bay South Africa - the Porposed Destruction Continues!

Postby Windfreeeek » Wed Apr 22, 2009 11:40 am

Shark Bay, Langebaan - South Africa - The Proposed Destruction Continues! :angryfire:


Hi there!

It has been a while since I last wrote, but our successful attempt to get the developer, Ricardo Scapellini to drop his previous Section 28 Application has not dampened his desires to ruin Shark Bay. In fact, he has renamed his Bahia Sardinia project, Shark Bay and is currently trying to get his Environmental Consultants, Doug Jeffrey, to provide a Final Scoping Report under section 24 of NEMA. This process is underway and we now need to further OBJECT to this latest Final Scoping Report on or before the 29th of April 2009.

"There are costs and risks to a program of action, but they are far less than the long range risks and costs of comfortable inaction." John F. Kennedy

Objecting, as always, is being made easy for you via our www.savesharkbay.org website and you can simply add you name, email address and postal address and then click ENTER! We have created a Technical Objection which we feel is a mighty argument against the methods and reasons used by Ricardo and his team. Feel free to add anything you like.

PLEASE do this ASAP and let's make this thing go away. 20 years of continued objection to this problem must be finally put to bed!

Regards

692 Objections so far!

Let's try for a 1000 before the shut off in 2 days! Please read the information on the site and stop this madness!

Shark Bay offers super safe learning in warm waters. This could be lost forever.

Good Morning!

Congratulations to Jonathan Norsworthy (SOUTH AFRICA) for being the 1000th Objector to the Shark Bay Development! Objections are due in by today, so if you have not objected yet, please go to www.savesharkbay.org and get yours in!

Whilst checking out sites, why not view www.sharkbayfacts.org (the developer's site) to see what his "facts" truly are . Whilst viewing, please note that the site has not been updated since he was sent back to the drawing board to do a proper Scoping Report and application through section 24 of NEMA and NOT under Section 28!!! We did try to get a Link Sharing thing going on, but our site (Savesharkbay.org) is not factual enough according to an unsigned email, so please find out the facts for yourselves, then you can object with knowledge!

Well done to all who have objected so far! Over 1000 people and counting has to show the desires of those online who want to stop this development in it's tracks. The owner, Ricardo Scapellini, has threatened through the "FACTS" website, and locally, to close the road and the land. Then what? A Private Reserve. Who knows, except a Private Reserve or any Building, Development or more carries yet another EIA Process, Application et cetera! And by doing so, he will take away the land used by so many over the years. I guess a few "select" friends or businesses may benefit from this, but this should not be about personal or professional gain!

FACTS - according to our panel of Experts, Environmental Lawyers & a Senior Advocate
This land; impinges on the RAMSAR site, IS a Buffer Zone to a National Park, is OUTSIDE of the Urban Edge of Langebaan, IS a critical Terrestrial and Aquatic Biodiversity Area (National Biodiversity Institute) and there are NO vested development rights on this land whatsoever - rights granted in the past were set aside by Courts of Law and were NEVER reinstated!!!!

Please get all those not already registered or who have not Objected to do so TODAY!

Thanks again
Rob & the Team
