Overstrand Pensioners Reminded To Apply For Property Rates Rebate

Pensioners and disabled persons have until 30 November 2020 to submit their applications for a rebate on property rates to Overstrand's Rates and Data Control Office.

The decision to temporarily extend the last receipt date for applications for rebates from 30 September 2020 to 30 November 2020 was made during a virtual Council meeting held on Wednesday 29 July 2020, to afford ratepayers more time to acquire and submit the necessary documentation required for the approval of applications.

Retired and Disabled persons qualify for special rebates on property rates, according to their total gross monthly household income.

A rebate will be considered if:

    • The owner(s) must be a South African citizen(s)
    • The applicant(s) must be the registered owner(s)
    • The owner(s) must occupy the property as his/her/their primary residence
    • The owner(s) must be at least 60 years of age or in receipt of a disability pension from the State
    • The gross monthly household income may not exceed eight times the state-funded social pension per month (R14 880)
    • The property may not consist of more than one residential unit
    • The applicant(s) may not be owner(s) of more than one property

Pensioner's rebate application forms are available on Overstrand’s website at www.overstrand.gov.za, click on Documents, click on Forms.
Enquiries with regard to the above, can be directed to the Rates and Data Control Office on 028 313 8000. Alternatively send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

The all NEW, tried and tested baboon-proofed wheelie bin!

The Chacma Lock has been designed by one of our very own Pringle Bay BAG members and developed in conjunction with the municipality to ensure that it is compliant with all of the Overstrand Municipality’s requirements. The Chacma Lock is hot dip galvanised for exterior durability and comes with a carabiner clip for locking the bin.

chacma lock

Many traditional baboon-proof locks only use one or two clasps at the front, leaving the sides and back corners vulnerable. The Chacma Lock has been specifically designed to strengthen the whole lid, from corner to corner.

Buy now and get a new black recycled plastic 240l wheelie bin WITH the Chacma Lock pre-installed, ready to use for only R1200. Pick-up in Pringle Bay (if need be, special arrangements can be made for delivery).

Order yours NOW!

Geagte Burgemeester en gemelde amptenare

Namens die Belastingbetalersvereniging van Bettysbaai (BBBV) wil ek u almal opreg bedank vir die pasaangekondigde tegemoetkoming ten opsigte van bouplangelde wat uit ons vertoë voortgespruit het. Dit is nie alleenlik 'n besondere ruim finansiële bydrae nie, maar getuig ook van empatie met die slagoffers van die vernietigende brande van 11 Januarie 2019.

Ek glo dat u simpatieke optrede die emosionele en finansiële trauma van die slagoffers sal help verlig.

Ons wens u, namens 'n dankbare gemeeenskap, sterkte met u onderskeie verantwoordelikhede toe.
