Jeffreys Bay
Second public meeting about Seekoei River management plan
The second public participation meeting about the proposed management plan for the Seekoei estuary will take place in Jeffreys Bay on Monday, February 26.

The meeting will take place at the Dutch Reformed Church Hall at Paradise Beach at 18:00.

Kouga Executive Mayor Elza van Lingen encourages all stakeholders to attend the meeting.

“The Seekoei estuary has for many years been a point of contention,” says van Lingen.

“Management plans for both the Seekoei estuary and the mouth have been prepared. Both plans are still in draft format and will be presented to stakeholders for their comments and inputs.

“The plans will then be finalised and tabled to Council for adoption.”

The documents were prepared by specialists from the Institute for Coastal and Marine Research (CMR) at Nelson Mandela University.

They are available from the CMR’s website at http://cmr.mandela.ac.za/Consulting.
