Dear Stakeholder

The Provincial Government Western Cape: Department of Transport and Public Works (WCDTPW) proposes to construct a bypass road ~3 km long to the north of the Hermanus CBD, abutting Mountain Drive, past the Hermanus Sports Complex and along Fairways Avenue. SRK Consulting has undertaken the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process in terms of the National Environmental Management Act 107 of 1998, as amended (NEMA), and previously released the Final EIA Report for public comment.



The Hermanus CBD requires a cohesive public realm with a unified material language for streetscapes and open space areas. Over the previous years the improvements to Market Square, Gearings Point and the cliff path walkways have undoubtedly made a dramatic improvement to the quality of the public spaces of the Hermanus CBD. Similarly, the investments in the public realm associated with the Station Square and Woolworths developments have reinforced the quality of the town. However, much remains to be done.

It is greatly appreciated that you took the time to meet with us on 14th August 2020

We are very disappointed about the fact that the original Better Living Model proposal put forward by Helen Zille and signed by all parties, in agreement to go forward for the Schulphoek area, has been down scaled and itappears that the illegal invaders will now be accommodated on this land. It has been stated that you are planning to put services into this area for these illegal occupiers.

Herewith I would like to inform everybody that, in line with our programme, we are planning to start the work in Main Road from the Hamewith Building up to Dirkie Uys Street, as per the approved traffic accommodation plan.  Refer to the section circled in red below.  The road closure will be set up on Tuesday 11 August 2020.  Main Road will be completely closed between Dirkie Uys Street and Marine Drive.  Both Dirkie Uys Street and Marine Drive will still be open to traffic as usual.

The President, telling the nation that “We will prioritise the lives and livelihoods of our people above all else, and will use all of the measures that are within our power to protect them from the economic consequences of this pandemic”, has announced a variety of initiatives to assist SMMEs (Small, Medium and Micro-Enterprises) that will need assistance in surviving the three week lockdown and economic disruptions flowing from the COVID-19 coronavirus.

In the matter brought by 18 applicants, being the WHALE COAST BUSINESS & COMMUNITY FORUM (Non-Profit Company) t/a as WCBCF, representing many businesses and residents of the Greater Hermanus,  as the First Applicant, plus 17 other applicants, being various boutique hotels and restaurants (all of whom were falsely vilified and subjected to racial slurs and brazenly false accusations of bribery and corruption, white supremacy, racism and so forth,  by the six respondents GCOBANI NDZONGANA, NOKUZOLA SALUKAZANA, VUYANI NKOMO, SIYABULELA NOTWALA, THEMBINKOSI ZIBA and ZWELIHLE RENEWAL), judgment was handed down in favour of the 18 Applicants today in the Western Cape High Court, Cape Town, by Madam Justice Nobahle Mangcu-Lockwood, who confirmed as final the interim interdict granted on 8 July 2019 by Mr. Justice Samela against the abovementioned 6 respondents, that interdicted these 6 respondents from doing so. GCOBANI NDZONGANA, NOKUZOLA SALUKAZANA, VUYANI NKOMO, SIYABULELA NOTWALA, THEMBINKOSI ZIBA and ZWELIHLE RENEWAL  are as a result permanently interdicted from continuing their unlawful, malicious smear and intimidation campaign against these 18 Applicants that these 6  respondents had embarked on in July 2019.

The Hermanus Community Police Forum invites all local community organisations, institutions and associations to register with the CPF, in order to participate in the upcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM) and elections.

This membership drive is an effort to make our CPF more representative of the wider community, we would like to hear from you even if your organisation is not yet fully constituted.

The workshop was addressed by Chief Smith, Hermanus Fire & Rescue and Joan Pillay, Assistant Disaster Management Officer.  The meeting was also attended by various Church Institutions, Security Groups and the Business Forum.

The aim of the workshop is to identify stakeholders and members of the public who could assist the Overstrand Municipality during and after major disasters.

The 19 individually targeted businesses and the Whale Coast Business and Community Forum (WCBCF) would like to place the following on record regarding recent acts of intimidation and calls for a targeted mass protest action in Hermanus, as circulated by Zwelihle Renewal, Gcobani Ndzongana, and others.
