GEORGE NEWS - Zutari (formerly Aurecon Africa), in response to the article, 'Garden Route Dam: Concern over development' (George Herald, 30 July) states that it is not involved with the development itself.
Sonja Jansen van Rensburg, Zutari's chief communications officer, stresses that George Municipality appointed Zutari to prepare and submit an application for rezoning (including departure and consent use) and subdivision on a 118ha portion of the Remainder of Erf 464 George adjacent to the Garden Route Dam.
The article refers to a concerned resident, Dean Chandler's, comment: "The proposal per Aurecon impacts substantially more on the existing suburbs of Eden and Loerie Park. There is already a huge outcry from the local residents in this regard and this must be re-addressed."
Jansen van Rensburg says, "The above statement creates the erroneous impression that 'Aurecon' is involved with the development itself, when it was only responsible for the rezoning application. This is not only factually inaccurate but is also prejudicial to our good name and standing."
The George Herald apologises for any wrong impression created around Zutari's role in the application process.
