The Total value of the properties at construction was then R52 million. The purpose for constructing the properties was to contribute to the socio economic development of Hamburg.

In liaison with a number of stakeholders and in an effort to realise the initial concept of contributing in the socio economic development aimed at improving the lives of Ngqushwa communities, the ADM will handover these properties to the local municipality as the first step towards ensuring sustainable running of the centres.

ADM RETAINS BLUE FLAG STATUS

ADM RETAINS BLUE FLAG STATUS

 

TUESDAY, 30th October 2017

 

ADM HEADQUARTERS,

 

The Amathole District Municipality (ADM) has received the Blue Flag status for the 3rd consecutive year for the Hamburg beach under Ngqushwa Local Municipality. The award was issued by the Deputy Minister of Tourism, Elizabeth Thabethe on the 4th October 2017 at Jeffrey’s Bay. ADM has further submitted Birha (Ngqushwa), Qatywa (Elliotdale) and Tenza (Willowvale) as pilot beaches for the Blue Flag status.

 

The project started in 2014 as one of the special Mayoral projects to unlock socio-economic opportunities of the Amathole coastal region. Hamburg beach which was in a dilapidating state was identified as a pilot site and funds were injected to refurbish facilities, train life guards, conduct water testing and procure equipment. Retaining the Blue Flag status has lasting benefits to the district such as minimised drowning incidents due to high safety standards as well as tourism injection as tourists prefer eco labelled beaches.

 

“As a district that is committed towards selfless, excellent and sustainable service delivery to all its communities, job opportunities are created through working for coastal and tourism blue flag program. ADM is a coastal district municipality, therefore, this programme ensures strategic positioning of the district to maximise tourism opportunities and unlocking of funding streams through partnerships and collaborations. This accolade becomes a springboard for our local municipalities to maximise local economic development,” said a visibly delighted ADM Executive Mayor Nomfusi Nxawe.

 

The programme is managed by ADM Environmental Management-Marine and Coastal management together with local municipalities and relevant stakeholders such as Eastern Cape Department of Economic Development, Environmental Affairs & Tourism (DEDEAT) and National Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA).
