Tracey has worked on a number of historical significance reports for properties all over the Western Cape. From Hout Bay, to Banhoek, Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Groot Drakenstein and Kramat sites situated around the Cape. Every site and piece of land has its own fascinating history.

Tracey has a passion for finding stories that reflect the multiple layering of human history on our South African landscape.

These reports are often used in Heritage Impact Assessments during the proposal to develop stage, and help to inform guidelines and perimeters for that development. She has often worked in a team with archaeologists, ecologists, heritage architects, community leaders, and other relevant parties during the assessment phase of development.
