In a meeting today with the Departments Road & Public Works, Environmental Affairs and other interested parties regarding the building of the new Sea Vista Primary School it was quite clear that Kouga Municipality will have to address the storm-water problem for both possible sites.
Both sites, erf 3143 or erf 400 will need a proper storm-water drainage.
A new primary school is a must for Sea Vista and the community of Sea Vista is adamant that they prefer erf 3143 next to Tarragona Road as a site for the new school.
DA Councillor Ben Rheeder has requested that provision be made in the Kouga Municipal budget for 2012/2013 to address this problem. “The standing committees are the best starting point to address the storm-water problem regarding the new school” says Rheeder.
“The Department of Education have requested Kouga Municipality to make a written commitment that they will provide electricity, sewerage, water and storm-water for the school sites or the money for the building of the schools will be withdrawn”.
