Two venue changes for valuation meetings

05 June 2017

Four public meetings will be held next week in preparation of the compilation of the new General Valuation Roll for Kouga.

Executive Mayor Elza van Lingen asked residents to take note that the venues for two of the meetings have been changed since the initial publicity.

The meetings will start at 18:30 at the following venues:

  • On Monday, 12 June, the first meeting will be held at the Newton Hall in Jeffreys Bay. The meeting will focus on the Jeffreys Bay area, including, Aston Bay, Marina Martinique, Pellsrus, Mandela Bay, Tokyo Sexwale, Ocean View and Paradise Beach.
  • The second meeting will be held at the Hankey Learners Licence Test Centre at the main municipal office on Tuesday, 13 June. The focus will be on Thornhill, Loerie, Hankey, Patensie, Gamtoos, Crossways, farms in the Hankey and Patensie areas, as well as those Uitenhage farms that fall under Kouga’s jurisdiction.
  • On Wednesday, 14 June, a meeting will be held at the Humansdorp Country Club for Humansdorp town and surrounds, including, Kruisfontein, KwaNomzamo, Vergenoeg, Vaaldam and farms in the Humansdorp area.
  • The fourth and final meeting will take place on Thursday, 15 June, at the St Francis Links. The focus areas will be St Francis Bay, the St Francis Links, Kromme River, Sea Vista, Cape St Francis and Oyster Bay.

“The new General Valuation Roll will determine how much property owners will be expected to pay for rates and taxes from the 2018/2019 financial year. We would, therefore, like to encourage them to attend the meetings as the outcomes of the process will affect everyone,” the Mayor said.

She said the draft Roll would be tabled to Council for adoption before the end of January 2018, after which property owners would have an opportunity to object should they disagree with the new valuation of their property.
