Over 100 written objections to new tourism bylaw
Plett Tourism has, to date, been copied in on over 110 written objections to the tourism bylaw that Bitou Municipality proposed recently – a document which has had no input from Plett Tourism, the Plett Accommodation Association or any of the affected tourism parties.
In addition to this, a hand signed petition launched by Plett resident Joanne Barrett opposing the bylaw has garnered support from over 2 000 individuals, while the same online petition has received in excess of 7 350 at last count.
Today, Friday 8th June, is the deadline for submitting objections to the proposed bylaw, which could see Bitou Municipality take control of Plett Tourism if left unchecked. Interested and affected parties are therefore encouraged to submit their views and concerns before the end of today.
