The Kouga Council has been streamlining communication with wind farm developers so as to ensure local communities benefit optimally from their social responsibility programmes. Click here for the latest news from the Jeffreys Bay Wind Farm and the Kouga Wind Farm.

Kouga Municipality is compiling a new General Valuation Roll. The draft roll will be completed by January 2018, following which property owners will have the chance to object should they disagree with the new valuation of their property.

Kouga is conducting a customer satisfaction survey to determine how residents experience service delivery and where improvements must be prioritised. Click here for print or electronic versions of the survey, in English, Afrikaans and isiXhosa. The closing date is 31 July 2017.

Welcome to Kouga Local Municipality

The Kouga Local Municipality is located in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, west of Nelson Mandela Bay, and forms part of the Sarah Baartman District Municipality. It consists of nine towns, namely, Jeffreys Bay, Humansdorp, St Francis Bay, Cape St Francis, Oyster Bay, Patensie, Hankey, Loerie and Thornhill, as well as various smaller settlements and agricultural nodes.

While Kouga has traditionally been characterised by economic activities largely focused on tourism and agriculture, the area has been positioning itself as one of tne energy hubs of South Africa. Two wind farms are already in operation at Jeffreys Bay and Oyster Bay, and more are in the pipeline.

Kouga is also home to Thyspunt, one of the preferred sites for  a new nuclear power station to serve South Africa's growing energy requirements.
