An Environmental Authorisation (EA) was granted for the proposed Mango Grove Eco Estate located in Kei Mouth in the Eastern Cape Province in 2011 (AR/12/544,545,546/1/10). The construction of the proposed development did not commence in time and therefore the EA has since lapsed. The applicant, Mr Robin Wood of Lutuli Ranches CC, would like to re-initiate the process and has requested that CES re-apply for an EA. However, as the previous EA has since lapsed and layout of the proposed development (now named Kei Mouth Eco Estate) has changed considerably, a new EA application is required.
The proposed development, Kei Mouth Eco Estate, entails the development of 50 high income residential erven, two lodge sites each (with a capacity of 100 beds) and a recreational facility (this is considerably fewer than the 100+ units approved in the previous EA issued). Associated activities include the construction of distributed on-site sewage treatment units and underground sewage reticulation, construction of two dams, construction of internal strip roadways, and the installation of underground water and electricity reticulation infrastructure.
