To the Governing Body
I donít think that you must build a shopping centre at PrincessVlei because people love to go there to celebrate, maybe their birthday and have picnics there. It would also spoil all our fun, like we like going there to take our dogs for a walk at night. If you would take it aside and build a shopping mall then their would be lots of pollution, all packets would be thrown in the vlei and that would not be appropriate for us and the animals.
If the water is running to the sea then all that packets would make our animals die in the sea because they would think itís food for them to eat,
when they eating a packet. Also if they would build a centre, the sand would be to soft.
There is this vlei

To who may concern
I have a problem about what you are doing to the environment. I just want to say what things you are hurting during this project. First of all you will be hurting all the living things around the environment and destroying our nature. In Apartheid we couldnít go to any other vlei except Princess Vlei. Princess Vlei should be like a heritage site, and be remembered by all people for its beauty. Princess Vlei reminds us the only happiness during Apartheid. So why would you damage it. Imagine Princess Vlei was the best place you could ever find happiness and it could be damaged. So that is how we feel about it. So make our world a better place just by starting to do a small thing to save the environment. A government is supposed to look after the citizens of Cape Town. So how are you helping them by damaging the environment around them?
If I was the government I would of see to the people in Cape Townís dislikes and likes that includes needs to.
