Overstrand Executive Mayor, Dr Annelie Rabie, held a public meeting on Monday afternoon, 6 February 2023, to update the public regarding the lease and subletting agreement, structural non-compliance and land availability of the Hermanus Country Market (HCM).

Mayor Rabie once again gave her commitment to resolve the issues because the market is part of the Hermanus community and plays an important role locally - for the traders, locals, and visitors.

She said “Hermanus needs the market and must have a market”. “Unfortunately, laws and regulations I cannot change.

We need to get the representatives around the table to decide a plan of action with timelines for the way forward.”
