Ward Delimitation meeting on 25 February in George

George - In preparation for the 2021 municipal elections, the Municipal Demarcation Board (MDB) conducts ward delimitation (subdividing) meetings for all metropolitan and local municipalities to propose new ward boundaries.

The primary focus of this meeting is to afford members of the public and all stakeholders an opportunity to participate in the ward delimitation process. Interested parties will be allowed to make inputs on how they would like their wards to be configured.

The public meeting for Overstrand Municipality will take place on Tuesday, 25 February 2020 starting at 09:00 in Auditorium, Municipal Offices, Hermanus.

Overstrand residents are welcome to work through the draft ward maps and comment on which draft wards are acceptable before the finalisation of ward boundaries ahead of next year's local government elections.

Draft ward maps are available for scrutiny at the respective Area Managers of the four Administrations of the Overstrand Municipality, as well as at Ms H van Tonder, Municipal Head Offices, Hermanus.

Information is also available on, and downloadable from, the MDB’s website at www.demarcation.org.za/site/2019-2/
