Vision 2030 Feedback
Category: CPNW,NRPA,Vision 2030 Author: Admin Date: 4 years ago Comments: 0

It has been a busy and exciting few weeks for the Noordhoek 2030 team.

We moderated 25 small discussion groups (with an average turnout of 10 people per group).
Our Interceptors questioned 368 people at various venues in and around Noordhoek.
We spent 2 days analysing information.
We moderated a Meeting of the Minds where 50+ representatives from the 25 discussion groups, our interceptors and the NRPA EXCO workshopped the analysed information.

As we are volunteers, we attend birds as and when we are available – we’re not on permanent call, but we help whenever we can.

Dear Noordhoek Resident:

The breeding season for the guttural toad starts round about now, so residents need to be on the listen-out for the loud calling indicating that mating is about to happen.
