HELP IDENTIFY BELLVILLE’S HERITAGE ASSETS
Are there historic buildings, events, places or cultural practices that you would like to see celebrated or commemorated in the Bellville CBD and surrounds?
The City of Cape Town has commissioned a study of the heritage of the Bellville CBD and surrounds. The project aims to identify physical and cultural heritage resources that should be protected, enhanced and celebrated in future planning.
Heritage experts will be surveying the area and carrying out interviews to map and describe aspects of Bellville with aesthetic, architectural, historical, social or cultural value. The team will be conducting research, interviews, and surveys in the study area between April and June 2021.
Submit your inputs via the website or get in touch with the team to share your knowledge and views on heritage resources that should be celebrated or commemorated in the Bellville area. Inputs should reach us by no later than 30 April 2021 to be considered.
The Bellville CBD study area includes the central business district along Voortrekker Road as well as the residential suburbs of Boston, Oakdale, and Kingston. It extends from the N1 to the railway line, and from Mike Pienaar to Bill Bezuidenhout.
