Activists who have long fought the redevelopment of the River Club in Cape Town’s Observatory are celebrating the Western Cape High court’s ruling on Friday stopping the R4.5 billion development, and saying that the developers must “consult meaningfully” with all affected people. James Tannenberger, trustee and spokesperson for the Liesbeek Leisure Property Trust, told News24 though that they are, “… deeply disappointed by the outcome of the interdict application”. “The legal team is studying the judgment circulated by the Deputy Judge president’s registrar and is considering the legal avenues available to it in the circumstances,” he said.
