Draft Eden CMP and workshops

Received from Aidan Wood:

Please read the following carefully. There is a lot of information
about the Draft and the next series of workshops.

The Draft Eden Coastal Management Programme is now available for
review/comment. It can be accessed from the Eden Municipality website. Go to
www.edendm.co.za then click on the Coastal Programme on the menu on the left
of the page then click on the Eden District Coastal Management Programme.
The following documents will appear, each of which can be downloaded

Draft CMP Figures (7099.94 Kb)
Draft Management Action Plans Afrikaans (177.95 Kb)
Draft Management Action Plans English (180.07 Kb)
Eden DM Coastal Management Programme Phase II Volume IV (282.31 Kb)
Eden DM Coastal Management Programme Report Phase II Volume III (602.67 Kb)
Eden DM Coastal Management Programme Report Afrikaans: Fase II Deel III
(583.87 Kb)

Please note that only the core sections of the CMP have been translated.
These include the main report (Phase II Volume III) and the Management
Action Plans (strategies). Due to time constraints and budget, the
Appendices (Phase II Volume IV) have not been translated. I have done the
translation myself, so please bear with me if there are a few grammatical or
syntax errors. If something does not make sense or appears to have been lost
in translation please contact me for clarification.

Comments can be forwarded to me and I will take these into account for the
upcoming workshops and the final report. I have attached a template which
should be used for comments specifically about the Management Action Plans.

The cost to print and mail hard copies to individual stakeholders is
prohibitive. Hard copies will, however, be available at Municipal offices at
the following venues from the end of next week – Plettenberg Bay, Knysna,
George (and Eden District office), Mossel Bay, Stilbay and Witsand. Please
do not remove these copies from the venues.

The timetable for the second series of workshops where the Draft will be
discussed is as follows (postponed from the dates supplied in the original
notices and the first workshops; please note that all times are 18h00 except
Witsand, which will be at 16h00):

30 July ˆ Plettenberg Bay; Piesang Valley Community Hall (18h00)
31 July ˆ Hornlee; Municipal Library Complex (18h00)
1 August ˆ Mossel Bay; Town Hall (18h00)
2 August ˆ George; Banquet Hall (18h00)
3 August ˆ Witsand; Community Hall (16h00)
6 August ˆ Stilbay; Melkhoutfontein Community Hall (18h00)
7 August ˆ Albertinia; Town Hall (18h00)
8 August ˆ Wilderness Beach Hotel (18h00)
9 August ˆ Public holiday
10August ˆ Sedgefield; Municipal Hall (18h00)

Neither the Knysna nor the Brenton-on-Sea Hall was available, which is why
Sedgefield has been used as a venue instead.

Thank-you for your continued participation.
