The dates of the meetings are:

19 October 2015. 18:00 – 20:00 Oyster Bay. Oyster Bay Hall.
20 October 2015. 18:00 – 20:00 St Francis Bay. St Francis Links
21 October 2015. 18:00 – 20:00 Sea Vista. Sea Vista Hall
22 October 2015. 18:00 – 20:00 JBay. Newton Hall
23 October 2015. 18:00 – 20:00 Humansdorp. Old Golf Club

The biggest concerns about Thyspunt are the lack of readiness of the Kouga Municipality from an infrastructural perspective, and the lack of planning for a major influx of people into the area.

The town planning Impact Study does not seem to assess the potential impacts at all, which is alarming, as there is a huge infrastructure backlog in Kouga already.

Tourism will be impacted negatively should Thyspunt go ahead, according to the Impact Studies and with tourism being a main economic driver and job creator in the region, it will be in the interests of the tourism industry to attend the meetings.
