"On behalf of the residents of Stellenbosch Municipality, I reject in the strongest possible terms Eskom’s NERSA-approved electricity price hike of 18.6%. This enormous price increase is unaffordable and unfair. We reject this increase outright."

Our region’s water usage has climbed rapidly to pre-drought levels.

Meteorologists are already predicting that an El Niño climate system is likely on its way back this winter. This could bring about a below-average rainfall season, which is particularly problematic for the Western Cape that receives the bulk of its rainfall in winter.

The dam levels of the 6 major dams in the Western Cape Water Supply System that feeds our region and surrounding municipalities currently stands at around 62% of capacity – nearly 25% lower than this time last year.

It is important that we adopt a waterwise lifestyle and that we always keep in mind that we live in a water scarce country. By working smarter with water, reporting leaks to the municipality immediately and using water sparingly, we can save water and bring usage down.

Welcome

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.
