“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing”, Edmund Burke.

UHA has led the fight thus far. It is time for every interested and affected community member to take action and make their voices heard.

EThekwini is currently considering an application by EnviroServ for a Scheduled Trade Permit.

Click here to see the Scheduled Trades and Occupations By-laws for EThekwini.

For some unjustifiable reason the Municipality appears to have excused EnviroServ from having to publish its application for a Scheduled Trade Permit to conduct business at the Shongweni Landfill site, and which despite continued nuisance impacts, it has continued to grant in the past.

This failure to compel EnviroServ to publish notice of its application is what required UHA to institute an application to interdict EThekwini from granting a Scheduled Trade Permit. EnviroServ, EThekwini, the Minister and Provincial DEA are deliberately delaying this matter being heard.

In terms of s4 of the By-laws, EThekwini can only issue the Scheduled Trade Permit if satisfied that no nuisance will result from the conduct of operations at the site and are also obliged to take action against EnviroServ if nuisance results, including directing abatement measures be implemented, and if they do not, to implement them and recover the costs from EnviroServ.

We all know EThekwini have done nothing other than to continue granting Scheduled Trade Permits to EnviroServ up to and including one which existed in April 2017.

In terms of s4 of the By-laws you are entitled to object to the grant of a Scheduled Trade Permit to EnviroServ.

Should you wish to lodge such an objection, please do so.

Such objections should be in writing, and lodged both with the Municipal Manager of EThekwini and the Head of the Department of Health. City Hall, 263 Pixley KaSeme (West) Street, Durban. They should be sent by registered mail or hand delivered and also be emailed to:

Neil.Larat@durban.gov.za

or fax to: 031 311 3530
