Future of the Oude Molen Eco Village

Dear proactive global citizen,

The general public as joint custodians of public assets have an amazing opportunity to become directly involved in designing a unique eco village and public urban park development.

The Oude Molen Eco Village Tenants Association, in partnership with the City - Two Rivers Urban Park organisation, are committed to maximising the potential of the Oude Molen property as a Live and Work micro enterprise eco village embracing a sustainable neighbourhood and public urban park principles.

The ultimate aim is to establish an economically sustainable micro-enterprise eco-village that is able to showcase how government, community and key stakeholders are able to collaboratively address national priorities such as unemployment, youth skills development, micro-enterprise development, food security and the demonstration of renewable energy technology, all based on proven international best practices.

After 17 years of existence the Oude Molen Eco Villages vision has come under threat from Provincial Government’s unimaginative “Business As Usual “approach and intend allocating a large portion of Oude Molen Village for an exclusive corporate pharmaceutical medical park.

We would appreciate a few minutes of your time to complete this survey to assist us better understand what your aspirations are regarding the future of this unique property. This will provide us with reliable feedback that can persuade Provincial Government to reconsider and support a far more progressive alternative development.
