Comment on the municipality's development plans

The Overberg District Municipality is finalising its conceptual development framework, which will determine the municipality's long-term spatial development plans. The public has the opportunity to comment on the document up to end-February 2013. The framework includes those strategies to be implemented in the district's major sectors, including its biodiversity conservation proposals.

The Agulhas Biodiversity Initiative will hold a session to inform key stakeholders on the framework on 22 February. The time and venue will be confirmed shortly. The meeting is open to any interested stakeholders, and will form the basis of feedback to the municipality. Municipal officials will also attend the session.

If you'd like to attend the meeting, please email for more information. The ABI Coordination Unit will also send out a news alert to partners with details in the coming days.
