DEA&DP/HWC Operational Agreement for the co-ordination of Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs) and Heritage Impact Assessments (HIAs)

On 5 April 2016, APHP hosted a workshop in this regard. A presentation was made by Gerhard Gerber (DEA&DP) and Jenna Lavin (HWC). A copy of this presentation, together with the Operational Agreement and Gantt Charts which outline the integrated process to be followed is attached.

Please note, both Gerhard and Jenna supported the suggestion that our members over the next few months record their issues, comments, best practice, etc. in terms of the implementation of the Operational Agreement and so that they are able to build up the record for when we next sit to improve the Operational Agreement. Your comments and suggestions are welcome: please submit them to the APHP secretary (info.wcape@aphp.org.za ) and we will collate a co-ordinated response when appropriate.
