The Amathole District Municipality (ADM) has initiated an environmental impact assessment (EIA) for the development of a municipal office park in Stutterheim on three hectares of undeveloped land.The municipality is also applying for a Green Star Rating.

The Green Building Council of South Africa has developed the Green Star rating tools based on those in Australia.

The object is “to provide the property industry with an objective measurement for green buildings and to recognise and reward environmental leadership in the property industry”.

Among the objectives of the Green Star Rating are to promote “integrated, whole building design” and raise awareness of the benefits of green buildings.

The aim is also to recognise environ-mental leadership and reduce the impact of development on the environment.
