Please Take Note Of This Information Concerning the Sand Mining Application on the Oysterbay Dune Field.
PUBLIC PARTICIPATION PROCESS AND YOUR SUPPORT IS NEEDED TO PREVENT THIS FROM GOING AHEAD!
As the leading project of 2023 for the Kromme Enviro-Trust, the Oysterbay dune field is a national asset and is an enormous archaeological treasure trove. Early Stone Age people lived, hunted, feasted and were buried in the sand dunes, and their remains are there to this day.
As well as the Sand River passing through the dune field, much of it, beneath the dune, there are a number of wetlands situated within the dune fields, some of which are considered to be some of the most important wetlands in the country, both culturally and historically.
There are two important links to view.
