Council, informal traders work together

The City of Cape Town’s Urban Management Directorate will host four informal trading information sessions in Khayelitsha, Mfuleni, Kuils River and Macassar this month.

It is anticipated that more than 240 informal traders will attend the sessions. To date, about 150 informal traders have attended similar information sessions that were held in Eerste River, Lwandle, Somerset West and Strand last month.

“The sessions are intended to inform the sector about the roles and responsibilities of the City in managing informal trading,” said Grant Twigg, Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Management. “The aim is to provide information about specific support interventions which are available to the informal trading sector.”

It will focus on how to apply for informal trading permits, to ensure compliance with environmental health regulations for food vendors, on how the City supports effective waste management, and what a trader’s responsibility is, details of the Informal Trading Bylaw and what traders need to do to ensure compliance, tax compliance and how this is applicable to informal traders, and accessing finance.

“Informal trading is not without its challenges,” said Twigg. “It is a tough balancing act between the formal and informal sectors. However, with proper guidance and support many of these challenges are resolved. We should be mindful that informal traders enable large numbers of people to gain a foothold in our urban economy and the City needs to support them in their ventures.

“The informal economy is a source of income to our most vulnerable households, and it offers residents an alternative to the formal sector so they can shop and search for bargains especially during tough economic times.”
