NOTIFICATION: RELEASE OF THE DRAFT DUNE MAINTENANCE AND MANAGEMNET PLANS FOR STILBAAI, GOURITZ AND WITSAND FOR PUBLIC REVIEW AND COMMENT
Hessequa Municipality appointed CES to prepare Dune Maintenance and Management Plans (DMMP) to facilitate the ongoing management and maintenance of the frontal dune areas at Stilbaai, Gourtiz and Witsand over a 5 year period. The purpose of the DMMP is to improve the management, use and ecological integrity of the frontal dune systems, in order to ensure that the ecological function of these systems is maintained. This is essential given the current loss of vegetation in certain areas due to ongoing recreational impacts on the dune system, the impacts of natural erosion events and the threat to built infrastructure.
Key stakeholders and Interested and Affected Parties are invited to review the draft DMMPs and provide comment and feedback. All comments received will be included in the final DMMP which will be submitted for adoption in the National Environmental Management Act.
All Interested and Affected Parties are hereby notified of the availability of the Draft Reports for public review and comment, during the 30-day review period.
