The City of Cape Town is to pump R3 million over the next two years to restore Princess Vlei in Retreat.

According to Ward Councillor Jan Burger, the project has already created 12 job opportunities.

Burger said the aim of the project is to transform Princess Vlei into a top fynbos sanctuary for recreational and educational purposes.

Burger said Kelvin Cochrane of Biowatch approached him about the restoration of Princess Vlei.

“The Princess Vlei has always been a Cinderella Vlei, nothing occurs around it. There is a lot of dumping and criminal activities so we want to bring it back as it used to be.”

Burger said at the end of the day, the legend of the Princess Vlei could be revived and therefore it is a vital task for the City of Cape Town.
