Our Story

The Liesbeek Action Campaign is committed to a participatory plan to preserve, share and utilise the unique convergence of the Liesbeek and Black Rivers. This is a site of national heritage and environmental importance - and a green lung for the entire City of Cape Town. As a team of volunteers, we are not adverse to development - merely one that does not reflect the importance of this site. We are fighting  against significant commercial interests and an aggressive oppositional campaign.

We have lead years of stakeholder participation, legal action, promoting alternative options and holding firm against the numerous flawed processes inherent in this proposed development.

Together, we are leading the legal fight to preserve this land
