Congratulations to our new DA Ward 5 Councillor
Looking forward to a new era in McGregor!Housing in McGregor
1. Having spoken to the DA Leadership and our new Councillor we have been told that no housing proposals for McGregor were ever sent for ratification to Province by the ANC.
2. The DA firmly believe that housing should be on one of the adjoining farms - more than likely, Swanepoel's. Our new Councillor has undertaken to keep us advised of developments in this regard.
