Durban Chamber - Water to New Developments




Just over a week ago, we received the following invite from the Durban Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

"NOTICE OF EMERGENCY MEETING: MORATORIUM ON THE PROVISION OF WATER TO NEW DEVELOPMENTS

The Municipality has announced a moratorium the implications of which are that there will be no provision of water to any new developments.

The reason for this is the risk faced by the municipality of an inadequate supply to meet future needs. Important infrastructure projects promised by national government have not been delivered.
Mr Neil McLeod, the Head of Water Services in the city will engage with members on this subject at a meeting specially convened for this purpose."

It goes without saying that the Association did attend, and I would like to take the opportunity thank the Durban Chamber and Neil McLeod for a very informative meeting.
