The plaintiff instituted action against the defendant municipality for compensation in respect of the damages allegedly sustained by him as a consequence of flood damage to his residential property at [Erf 1……], [P…….], [W…… C…….]. The property concerned is situated at the edge of the suburban area of the town at the corner of [D…… H…..] and [B…….] Streets on the south eastern boundary of Piketberg.
The property was subject to flooding on three separate occasions in 2007, 2009 and 2011, respectively. The compensation sought by the plaintiff was originally in respect of the consequences of all three of the aforementioned happenings, although it is not clear from the particulars of claim how, if at all, the computation of the sum claimed relates to anything other than the 2011 flood.
