Ward Committee What and who is the Ward Committee and who is ours?
In terms of
the Municipal Structures Act (Act 117 off 1998) a Local Council, if they so
decide, may establish a Ward Committee System.
Bitou Municipality have opted for
this initiative, to bring government to the people.
Bitou Municipality have
opted to establish a Ward Committee System. A ward committee may make
recommendations on any matter affecting its ward, and for that matter may
comment on all matters concerning the greater Bitou Municipal area.
The principal is that that the ward representative does not represent any
organisation as such, but is there for all the residents of Nature’s Valley and
is done on a voluntary remunerated basis – the representatives only
responsibility lies with the residents and has to answer to them and them alone.
Should any resident or owner have issues to bring to the attention off the
authorities, it should be done through your ward representative.
It is also
important to note that all applications for relaxation of building regulations
(building lines, consent usage and deviations) will be debated and commented on
through the Ward Committee and the necessary recommendations by your Ward Member
will influence the whole process.
