SECTION 24 OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE REPUBLIC OF SOUTH AFRICA, 1996
Everyone has the right to an environment that is not harmful to their health or well-being; and to have the environment protected, for the benefit of present and future generations, through reasonable legislative and other measures that prevent pollution and ecological degradation; promote conservation; and secure ecologically sustainable development and use of natural resources while promoting justifiable economic and social development.
TRAFFIC & ROADS
DOCRRA recognises and is concerned about a number of hot spots on the roads in the Dolphin Coast area. The concerns range from the quality of the roads (especially potholes), road markings, information and directional boards, street lighting, over growth and litter. We are currently collating as much information as we can and invite you to send any information you have to
DOCRRA is concerned about delays experienced with Town Planning applications. DOCRRA is working with KwaDukuza Municipality, local Architects and Planners, to try to simplify the application and approval process. We request your input and help to point out any Town Planning problems you may have at present - or have had in the past - that would serve to illustrate complications and delays.
The Dolphin Coast faces an onslaught of air pollutants and DOCRRA, in conjunction with Clean Air Ilembe, will be monitoring them. From sugar cane burning, air traffic fuel dumping and local factory contaminants - DOCRRA is working with local authorities to get a grip on what we are exposed to.
DOCRRA has concerns around the electrical reticulation in and around our area. It is alleged that problematic issues are being 'bypassed' instead of being repaired. This results in an escalation of outages to wider areas that could be contained during faults in the system.
REFUSE & LITTER
DOCRRA acknowledges the efforts of programs such as Litter for Tokens. We would like to expand on these initiatives as well as implement further awareness campaigns and clean-up efforts.
DOCRRA believes that to affect positive change, we need to work with our underprivileged communities. There are various initiatives already in place through other organisations. Click here for a full list including those that DOCRRA is spearheading.
