Welcome to Norscot Koppies and Kingfisher Nature Reserve!

Situated in Douglasdale, northern Johannesburg, the NKKNR is truly a jewel in the heart of suburbia.

With an area of approximately 16 hectares, the reserve is home to a variety of flora and fauna including blesbok and duiker, and is the perfect spot to unwind on a Sunday.

The reserve is open twice a month and would love to welcome you!

Re: Project Name: GA 057 Kingfisher Drive

You need to identify your contact name / telephone number and postal details / your interest in the matter

The objection should cover the following points:

  • This environment is a nature reserve and designated protected open space
  • It is an almost pristine environment with no services (water and electricity) and they should not be introduced to the area
  • There are plenty of other spots and accessible ground in the area for this to be erected
  • It is well known that these masts when close can introduce health implications and should be situated further away from a residential area

It is important for each individual to make their own objection since, as things progress, the proposers are legally bound to communicate with each and every individual

THESE OBJECTIONS NEED TO BE RECEIVED BY 17th APRIL.  Please help us and add your voice!
