Stellenbosch Municipality

Die Stad Kaapstad het onlangs ‘n kennisgewing uitgereik wat redelike verwarring en kommer gewek het binne die breër Stellenbosch. Hiermee wil Stellenbosch Munisipaliteit duidelikheid en uitklaring bied rakende die beplande onderhoud van die Wemershoekpyplyn, wat deur Metro onderneem gaan word.

 

Stellenbosch is pas aangewys as die 2017 Nasionale Boomstad van die Jaar in die nasionale kompetisie wat jaarliks deur die Nasionale Departement van Landbou, Bosbou en Visserye, in samewerking met die Instituut vir Omgewing- en Rekreasiebestuur en TOTAL Suid Afrika aangebied word.

Die aankondiging is amptelik gemaak gedurende ‘n prysuitdelingsfunksie in Matatiele in die Oos-Kaap. Die hoofdoel van die kompetisie is om erkenning te verleen aan dorpe en stede vir die uitsonderlike bestuur van groen areas en erfenis. Verdere doelwitte sluit in die uitbreiding van vergroening na voorheen benadeelde gebiede, die ontwikkeling van provinsiale en plaaslike vergroeningsbeplanningsraamwerke asook die nakoming van relevante omgewingswetgewing.

 

Traffic Services pay points at Motor Vehicle Registration and Court section will close at 14:00 on Wednesday, 30 August 2017.

We apologise for any inconvenience which may be experienced as a result of this closure.

STATEMENT BY EXECUTIVE MAYOR OF STELLENBOSCH MUNICIPALITY – GESIE VAN DEVENTER

The Stellenbosch Municipality Swop Shop programme continues to grow and enjoy overwhelming success, especially in the Klapmuts area. This project has been so successful that the Municipality acquired a custom made trailer to use as mobile shop for this project. Executive Mayor, Gesie van Deventer said: ‘’The success of the Swop Shop program is due to the cooperation and investment of residents in their own area. This project enables us to make a positive socio-economic investment in the community and demonstrates how beneficial mutual cooperation can be.”

The new Swop Shop trailer was officially launched in Klapmuts recently. This trailer has been custom designed and made by Mr Peter Price, of Priclo Trailers, for the express purpose of using it as a mobile shop. The trailer consists of shelves and clothing rails where all the stock available for purchase (via coupons) can be stored and displayed. The trailer opens up, allowing customers to access the shop and purchase the items they are interested in.

WESGROToday Wesgro CEO Tim Harris, Mayor of Stellenbosch Gesie van Deventer and Minister of Economic Opportunities Alan Winde hosted an engagement with stakeholders from across the Cape Winelands region to discuss opportunities for investment in Stellenbosch.

This engagement follows a panel discussion held in Cape Town in June 2017 on the province’s plan to maintain investor confidence in the regional economy following the recent spate of South African credit ratings downgrades.

Towns across the Western Cape have an important role to play in facilitating investment, growing the provincial economy and helping create jobs.
