147 fines issued for operating without a business licence

Overstrand law enforcement officers conducted unannounced inspections on businesses across the Overstrand in an effort to clamp down on illegal traders and businesses between 15 February and 21 March 2024

Almost 150 fines were issued. The contraventions ranged from operating without a business licence to business owners who do not comply with legal trading requirements.

Operators, who are without the necessary permits, have been given a few days to obtain the relevant documentations or they too will face fines. In some instances, the establishments were immediately closed down until they obtained the necessary licenses.

These inspections will continue throughout the Overstrand to ensure compliance to business and health and safety regulations.

“The law enforcement operations were part of ongoing efforts to promote a fair and competitive business environment in the Overstrand area and to ensure that businesses and traders adhere to regulations that are there to facilitate growth and safeguard the public,” said Cllr Lindile Ntsabo, Deputy Mayor and MMC for Protection Services.

The inspections were also conducted with the support of key partners in the law enforcement sector, including the Overberg District Municipality’s Health Department.
