KOUGA is home to Thyspunt, the preferred site for Eskom’s nuclear-build programme.

Even before we came to power, it was obvious that the municipality was nowhere near ready for the impact the proposed nuclear development would have on the area should it receive the go-ahead.

The new leadership met with Eskom and it was agreed that regular information-sharing and preparation meetings would be held.

The Thyspunt Joint Project Steering Committee was established on 9 December 2016.

Seven working streams, focusing on different potential impacts of the development, were also established on 7 April 2017.
