Alliance of Ratepayers’ Associations in Knysna/Plettenberg Bay

21 January 2020

Due to the uncertain state of governance in the municipalities along the Garden Route, the Ratepayers’ Associations of Plettenberg Bay and Knysna find themselves forced into taking a more active role in returning good governance to our municipalities.

One way or another, the towns are faced with similar, if not identical issues and have decided to form an informal affiliation of Ratepayers’ Associations (RPAs) and Homeowners Associations (HOAs) to open channels of communication in order to share experiences, knowledge and solutions.  It will allow the associations to present a united front when having to deal with government at the provincial and national levels.

The associations include: Plettenberg Bay Ratepayers’ Association, Knysna Ratepayers’ Association, Keurbooms Property Owners Association, Nature’s Valley Ratepayers Association,  Belvidere Home Owners Association, Leisure Isle Home Owners Association, Buffalo Bay Ratepayers’ Association, Sedgefield Ratepayers’ Association, and The Crags Residents’ Association. All nine associations are affiliated in the Garden Route and other RPAs and HOAs are welcome to join.
