Welcome to the
It is with great pleasure to welcome all citizens to the official new website of the Cape Winelands District Municipality. I am humbled and honoured to serve as Executive Mayor of Cape Winelands District Municipality (CWDM) for a second term. I am looking forward to a term filled with energy, commitment, focus and excellent services to the broader community of the Cape Winelands.
The CWDM over the years has already displayed a pocket of excellence. The achievements of this Municipality are testament to the fact that the CWDM is ready to further adapt our quality of services to the needs of our people.
My vision is perfectly encapsulated in the vision of the Cape Winelands District:
“A unified Cape Winelands of excellence for sustainable development”
I applaud the Municipality and its administration who adapted to the “new normal” and continued to render good services to the broader community throughout Covid-19. Our focus will now be on post Covid-19 economic recovery, followed by improved and upgraded infrastructure to ensure that all citizens get to live a life of value.
I encourage all citizens to become active citizens in local government through participating in decision-making processes by giving comment and input into IDP’s and calls for public comment.
By participation in local government processes, you will allow the Municipality to be able to enhance transparent, inclusive, and diverse services to all living in Cape Winelands; living out the true meaning of the Batho Pele Principles.
I encourage all citizens to keep wearing your masks and to stay safe in Cape Winelands.
Executive Mayor Ald. (Dr) Elna von Schlicht
Each of the municipal areas have their own features.
Langeberg has a drier climate than Drakenstein. Breede Valley is home to the internationally renowned Karoo Botanical Gardens. Stellenbosch boasts a long history in wine and academia. The exceptional Witzenberg is home to one of the highest zip lines in South Africa. Of course, the areas also share common features. They all offer wonderful options for accommodation to suit all pockets and needs.
