Residents have until 4 September 2023 to submit their comments on the Overstrand Municipality’s draft keeping of Dogs and Cats by-law.
Currently a maximum of two dogs and three cats are allowed to be kept on any erf or premises without the prior consent of the Municipality.
Some of the improvements entail that dog owners can allow their dogs to be off leash in specifically demarcated spaces in the Overstrand Municipal area.
Comments can be submitted via email to email@example.com for the attention of the Municipal Manager.
The draft by-law is available at the offices of the Area Managers in Gansbaai, Stanford, Hermanus and Kleinmond, in all the public libraries in the Overstrand and on the Municipality’s website at www.overstrand.gov.za; click on Documents, then by-laws and the draft by-laws tab; alternatively click here Draft By-Laws (overstrand.gov.za)
