Included herewith the W2F feedback report on the TWKM Council meeting held on 23rd Feb 2017.
Herewith the Ward 2 Forum comment in response to the Theewaterskloof Municipality Press Release, dated 10 February 2017, in respect of the Housing Protest Action in the Ward 2 area over the last few days.
This was the first meeting of the 2017 year and the Executive Mayor welcomed all the new councillors wishing them well for the tasks ahead. She delivered a brief report, which she plans will become a regular feature of her administration. It is hoped that this will give an insight into what is being done and envisaged by her office and municipal administration. Copy of the Mayor’s Report can be found on the Ward 2 Forum website (Click here).

Here is the Section 71 & 72 Report for Month ending Dec’16, as referred to in the Feedback document.
The Ward 2 Forum attends every Theewaterskloof Municipality Council meeting, in order to have first hand information of what is happening at our Municipality. It is the only organisation in our valley that does this.
At yesterday’s meeting it was announced that our Executive Mayor, Councillor Christelle Vosloo, will from now on regularly produce an informative report on what is happening in the TWKM area. The W2F welcomes and supports this initiative.

A number of residents have become very concerned with the substantial number of new buildings in Greyton that are wholly inappropriate for the sort of rural village we chose to live in, do not comply with the Guidelines established to control the architectural features and aesthetics of the built environment, and may detract from the amenity and real value of property in general.

The Ward 2 Forum Team is pleased to announce its participation in funding and mentoring of an Agricultural Project with members of the Voorstekraal community.
This is a pilot project that allows the agricultural sector of the Voorstekraal Community to participate in an opportunity to access allocated agricultural land with the aim of encouraging individuals to work fallow land to produce food and provide employment. The initial project will entail the tilling, fertilising and planting the 5 ha of land, comprising 3 ha of potato, 1 ha green beans and 1 ha of butternut.
We will keep you informed on the progress of the project. Should you wish to participate in this, other similar projects, or just need further information please do not hesitate to contact the team on firstname.lastname@example.org
