A two-day workshop on the sustainable development in the transitional zone of the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve was held in Kleinmond on 25 and 26 January 2023.

Day 1 started with a welcoming address by Cllr Clinton Lerm who is the responsible Mayoral Committee Member for Infrastructure and Investment for the Overstrand Municipality. In his address, Cllr Lerm focused on the word ‘TOLERANCE’.

He made mention of the fact that a lot of the empty plots within the biosphere were in fact sold many years ago and the original owners (or even their children) now wants to build on the plots. He continued by saying that owners have a right to build.

The Token Identifier (TID) rollover for the upgrade or re-programming of pre-paid electricity meter software is on track in the Overstrand Municipal area.

Any pre-paid meter software that has not been upgraded by 24 November 2024 will not be able to upload electricity tokens, resulting in electricity running out on your meter.

Units that are on your meter will still be available after the re-programming, so please make sure that all tokens are punched in. If you do not enter your credit tokens first, you will not be able to use them after you have entered the key change tokens.

Once your area becomes eligible for an upgrade, you'll receive two extra 20-digit codes along with your usual pre-paid token.
