Why City of Cape Town insists new coastal by-laws are not anti-poor
There has been a discussion on radio and on social media platforms based on the media reports focusing on one small element in the draft City of Cape Town Coastal by-law, the issue of not being allowed to use foul language on the beach.
The City of Cape Town has arranged a number of public hearings about the by-law, with three more still to take place between now and the 27th of August.
