    Apologies for the delay in response. I am not sure what exactly is going on. but i was under the impression wetlands were protected by council ? The day in question they set fire to the dry vegitation and there was a massive blaze. i tried numerous times to call the boxburg fire dpt, to no avail. A massive amount of birdlife and their natural habitate was senslessly destroyed. they then cam back that night to rekindle the fire and finish off the rest. i drove round and was nearly smashed into my 3 men in a white toyota hilux double cad speeding away. when i pulled up at the robot next to them they mearly said they called the fire dpt ( a lie as no one rocked up). How can this be permitted that fire could have gotten out of hand so easily and damaged nearby surrounding residences. I would like to know if they had permission from the fire dpt to do such and shouldnt there have been fire officials on standby if so. I suppose this is just another case of classic SA Capitalisim in bed with corrupt beaurocracy. how can they bill multi story buildings on wetland. its a disaster in the makeing.

    Hi, do you know what is happening with the piece of land where it seems some initial development was started last year. Will thio go-ahead or is there a possibility to stop it and at least preserve the piece of wetland and bird habitat?
