Eskom’s loadshedding puts severe pressure on our ability to ensure that we meet the regular water demand in our municipal area. Reservoirs do not always have enough time to refill to appropriate levels and this may lead to low water pressure or an interruption in supply.

An appeal is herewith made to reduce water usage to mitigate the effects of load shedding: • adopt a general water-wise lifestyle • take shorter showers • don't irrigate gardens with municipal water • use greywater or borehole water where possible • limit toilet flushes.

“Our goal is to enable emerging farmers to access municipal agricultural land and to ensure the optimal use of every patch of available agricultural land within the Stellenbosch municipal area. This demonstrates our administration’s commitment to creating a conducive environment for farming enterprises, especially for those emerging farmers who have historically been excluded from economic opportunities.” Mayor Gesie van Deventer

📷 In May 2021, Minister Ivan Meyer and Mayor Gesie van Deventer visited Mr Hylton Arendse, one of the emerging farmers who started leasing municipal agricultural land in 2019. Hylton leases a previously underutilised piece of land and now grows herbs and vegetables such as basil, coriander, rocket, parsley, spinach, beetroot, green beans, celery, cauliflower, and broccoli.

Stellenbosch lies roughly 50 km to the east of Cape Town and is - after the Mother City - the oldest town in South Africa.

The 900 square kilometres municipal area is internationally renowned for its beautiful environment, many places of interest, wine farms, street cafes, restaurants, quality wines, historical buildings and excellent educational institutions.

The major portion of the area is utilised for agriculture (mainly wine production) and it includes the major towns of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek as well as settlements such as Klapmuts, Koelenhof, Kylemore, Johannesdal, Pniel, Kayamandi, Cloetesville, Ida’s Valley, Jamestown and Raithby.
