NOTIFICATION: THE PROCLAMATION OF 2 (TWO) MUNICIPAL NATURE RESERVES NAMELY: NORTHCLIFF AND LINKSFIELD RIDGE IN TERMS OF THE NATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT: PROTECTED AREAS ACT 57 OF 2003.
In accordance with the requirements of section 23 (2) (b) of the National Environmental Management: Protected Areas Act 57 of 2003, a site is required to be declared as a nature reserve to protect the area, if the area has significant natural features or biodiversity; is of scientific, cultural, historical or archaeological interest or is in need of long term protection for maintenance of its biodiversity or for the provision of environmental goods and services. Furthermore section 23 (c) also suggests that a site can be declared a nature reserve in order to provide for nature-based recreation and tourism opportunities.
The City of Johannesburg is in the process of proclaiming two sites (Northcliff and Linksfield Ridge), each with unique and important biodiversity, as nature reserves under the Protected Areas Act. The two sites are located within the City of Johannesburg’s Metropolitan Municipality, in the Gauteng Province (Please see the attached map below for an indication of the region of interest). The proposed project involves the following processes, from a broad-level perspective:

Message from our Chairman:
To all Mountain club members in Gauteng - please note that due to some attempted access to our properties during lockdown we would like to reiterate that access is suspended until relevant lockdown regulations deem it legal. Currently, we suspect that this will only be in level 2 or 1 as both inter-provincial travels is required (Magaliesberg is largely in the North-West) and, more critically, hiking and climbing are not considered essential activities.
Your understanding is greatly appreciated.
