Residents’ rights to a safe and healthy environment are compromised when individual and group behaviour infringes on the general population.
There are ‘public nuisance’ by-laws in place, as gazetted on the Makana Local Municipality website. Events such as the one reported by Grocott’s Mail at Makana Resort recently and also at Rustic Route should be readily resolved by invoking those by-laws.
They require review, but for now, they stand.
During working hours, noise complaints can be made to the Makana Manager of Environmental Health, Johann Esterhuizen, at this email address: JohanneEsterhuizen@makana.gov.za
Or you can phone one of these numbers:
- Johann Esterhuizen: 0827334040
- Malcolm Grant: 07866258873
- Portia Sideba: 0734504361
After hours complaints should be made to SAPS.
Please cc emails or send a note recording the issue reported to firstname.lastname@example.org – this is an email address set up by Grahamstown Business Forum (GBF) to log by-law issues.
