Municipality subsidises farm sanitation

Drakenstein Municipality has implemented a farm subsidy scheme to help improve the lives of farmworkers and assist in making sure they get basic sanitation services.

The subsidy scheme subsidises farm owners to provide basic services to their farmworkers.

The approved policy provides for a maximum subsidy amount of R45 000 per farm per year and a maximum of R9 000 per dwelling.

The farms which applied for the subsidy were visited to verify the merits of each application. According to the municipality 11 applications were received, but they hope that for the 2018/2019 subsidy more farm owners will apply to make use of this benefit.

Farms that applied are: Limiet Rivier Farm, Nederburg Wine Farm, Pont Farm, Kleinpont Farm, Lady Loch Farm, Oudepont Farm, Oewersig Farm, Vredenhof Farm, Midde Farm, Irene Farm and Eden Farm.

“Should this subsidy be approved, the farm owner will have six months to complete the planned work, as specified in the application. The completed work will then be inspected. Should the work adhere to the prescribed standard (as stated in the application form), payment is recommended and paid over to the owner,” Dirk Hattingh, executive director: engineering services at the municipality, said.
