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.
