Leiwater Time Slot Schedule 2018/19 Season
After successful negotiations, the Overberg District Municipality (ODM), Overstrand Municipality and Theewaterskloof Municipality signed a Service Level Agreement for the Karwyderskraal Landfill site on Friday, 6 July 2018.
This Service Level Agreement is for the estimated useful lifespan of the whole Karwyderskraal Landfill site, which is estimated to be 55 years and will commence once the new cell in the Landfill site is completed.
In terms of the agreement, the ODM will construct a new cell in the Landfill site and maintain the Landfill site to ensure that Overstrand Municipality, Theewaterskloof Municipality and other interested parties and local municipalities in the Overberg Regional District have a facility to dispose of general waste.
According to estimates, the new cell (the fourth one of its kind) will be able to take approximately 200 000 tons of solid waste. At the current growth rate, the new cell will, therefore, take approximately eight years to fill before a new cell will have to be commissioned.
Theewaterskloof Municipality has made public its long term Service Level Agreement with the Overberg District Municipality and with respect to the use of the Karwyderskraal Regional Landfill facility, situated on a portion of Portion 79 of the farm Afdaksrivier No 575, subject to approval by the respective Municipal Councils in terms of Section 33 of the Local Government” Municipal Finance Management Act, Act no 56 of 2003 (MFMA).
Because the actual period of the long term Service Level Agreement would be the remaining lifespan of the landfill which will be more than three (3) years, the Municipalities have to comply with Section 33 of the MFMA.

Pursuant to the Ward 2 Forum Flood Mitigation Proposal Document forwarded to TWK, for the Scholtz River, we finally have some good news in respect of the process toward finalising a overall Strategy for the whole river.
An application for a non-substantial amendment to the above Environmental Authorisation (EA) is being lodged on behalf of the applicant, Theewaterskloof Municipality.
We have been advised that the validity period of the EA for the proposed Scholtz River Flood Attenuation Measures for Flood Prevention, Greyton, has been extended.
The reasons for this decision are provided in the EA. The decision dated 06 July 2018:
The Joint Constitutional Review Committee has called for written public submissions on the review of section 25 of the Constitution (Property Clause) and other sections where necessary, to make it possible for the state to expropriate land in the public interest without compensation.
This comes after the National Assembly in concurrence with the National Council of Provinces mandated the Constitutional Review Committee to propose the necessary constitutional amendments where applicable with regards to the kind of future land tenure regime needed.
Public hearing in the Overberg is being held on the 3rd August 2018 in Swellendam.
Venue: Swellendam Thusong Centre, Vollenhoven Street, Swellendam.
The bill was tabled in parliament in April 2016.
It seeks to, inter alia, provide for non-motorised and accessible transport, bring the act up to date with recent developments, provide for powers at the provincial level to conclude contracts for public transport services, expand the powers of the transport minister to make regulations and introduce safety measures and prescribe criteria and requirements for municipalities to enter into contracts for public transport services.
