Today, 11 April 2018, representatives of several municipalities from across South Africa met in Stellenbosch to discuss innovation in waste management. The group is on a study tour in Stellenbosch to visit our state of the art waste treatment facilities and learn about best practices in waste management.
This visit forms part of a Western Cape study tour organised by the Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).
Stellenbosch Municipality is putting its community first again by handing out its second batch of title deeds to residents in three months! This batch of title deeds closely follows the 117 title deeds handed over in January 2018. This is part of the municipality’s commitment to providing dignified living for all its residents.
On 7 March 2018, Municipal Manager Geraldine Mettler, officially launched a state-of-the-art water purification plant in Stellenbosch that will convert borehole water into safe, potable water. This forms part of the Municipality’s Drought Response Plan which aims to augment potable water supplies from groundwater, as the region continues to face a devastating drought.
During March 2018, Stellenbosch plays host to several major events that attract thousands of visitors as well as domestic and international tourists to our town. These annual events are highlights on the social calendar and inject millions into the local economy, creating much needed jobs for the people of our region.
