An excerpt from the section 34(1) application compiled by West Rand Heritage Consultants:
"Clarendon Court is at present in a sad state of disrepair and in need of renovation and upgrading. “Conservation” in relation to heritage resources, includes the protection, maintenance, preservation and sustainable use of it as to safeguard their cultural significance”.
It is the intent of the owners to restore the buildings to its former glory. In regard to the existing buildings the purpose is to uncover the existing face brick, restore the external façade, remove non-period additions and renovate the roof. It is believed that the original colour was white and the intention is to re-paint in that colour scheme. In short, the buildings are to be saved from further deterioration. The buildings will be renovated to their original condition."
