My email to Ecoimpact reads - "I have recently come across reference in the Swartland Gazette to a project that you are working on - 'At Darling Green Estate - Farm 4401'.
Can you please let me know where or how I can get more information about this project, such as who is the Sponsor, what are the time frames, how is the public affected, what is your involvement and anything you think Darling residents would be interested to know about."
I have recently received a very helpful email -
