Fynbos survey results (response to survey sent 12 Dec), AGM Reminder and members standing for election
The R44 between Gordons Bay and Rooiels re-opened on 20th December but it will have only one lane operational and there may be additional delays when they are actively repairing the road.
The Survey on the new Overstrand Municipality policy to cut back fynbos on empty erven has been closed. The survey was carried out to assess whether the RERA and REC Excos are representing both their members’ and the Rooiels community’s majority perspectives. That is to confirm that the majority of Rooielsers want to retain all the fynbos intact and healthy. They prefer to focus fire prevention on the removal of alien invasive plants and deadwood.
The survey concluded that 97% of people want invasive alien vegetation to be cut from empty erven and road reserves, while 89% also want deadwood to be cut from empty erven and road reserves. A resounding 95% of people prefer to have fynbos preserved and for it NOT to be cut back to 50 cm.
Sorry Images of the Graphs are not coming out on webpage. For the survey graphics results please refer back to the Mailchimp sent or link to the Plot Clearing page where full results are available --
In summary the results indicated that 95 percent of the 106 respondents do NOT want the fynbos cut down to 500mm (0.5m) - they want to retain the fynbos preserved and intact.
97% of the 106 respondents want to see alien invasive plants cleared from empty erven and road reserves
89% would like to see deadwood removed
The Rooiels Ratepayers’ Association (RERA) will hold its AGM on 30 December 2022 at 10:00 in the Pringle Bay Community Hall.

The meeting will be followed by a break for tea.
Four members of the current Executive Committee are making themselves available for re-election. Nominations for the Exco closed on 20 December and new nominations include Tom Baigrie, Achim Halpaap, and Piet van Rensburg. They have all accepted their nominations to stand.
The Rooiels Conservancy (REC) will hold its AGM also on 30 December 2022 at 12:00 in the Pringle Bay Community Hall. Again, only paid-up members can vote, but all Rooielsers are most welcome to attend. There will be information on Rooiels for all new residents. The current Exco have all made themselves available for re-election and they are joined by Ralph Pina who has accepted the nomination to stand.
We look forward to seeing you there and wish you Seasons Greetings in the meantime – hope it is festive.
