Given that the last day of Overstrand Municipality’s Tourism Indaba happens to fall on the first Thursday in September, Mayor Rabie requested that the scheduled First Thursday event in Hermanus be postponed by a week.

The First Thursday initiative has become a fantastic opportunity for residents to engage with the Mayor and her team on how to improve municipal service delivery in their respective areas. No appointment is needed as the sessions will be conducted on a first come, first served basis.

We are looking forward meeting you one-on-one at the Municipal Banquet Hall in Hermanus on 14 September 2023 from 17:00 – 19:00.


Pressure loggers will be installed on the water network in De Kelders to determine the average pressure in the system during the first week of September.

Overstrand Executive Mayor, Dr Annelie Rabie, said this decision was prompted after several residents in the De Kelders suburb experienced water losses due to pipe breaks on their properties.

The service provider who was appointed to install the pressure loggers, will generate a report over a two-week period and present their findings to the complainants in October to the relevant community members as requested.  The projected cost of this exercise is R159 431 VAT exclusive

Overstrand Municipality has received many complaints this year over the illegal cutting of trees in especially the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley.

Although there is a lot of suitable trees in the Overstrand area, neither the Municipality nor CapeNature issue permits to harvest invasive alien plants for braai wood on municipal land.

Private landowners may implement a permit system or issue a letter of authorisation to woodcutters stating that they are allowed to remove category 1b or 2 trees (such as blue gum) from a specific area. As such it is up to the individual landowner to come to an arrangement with the wood cutter regarding safety concerns and entry, regrowth and managing the woodland.  The most important arrangement must be that the landowner ensures that all discarded leaves and branches are removed after the cutting as it becomes fuel for any fire that may start.
