A quick note from my Cape Talk interview now:
When the City announced its Blue Flag beaches for 2016 earlier this month, there were two GLARING omissions:
BLOUBERG BEACH and BIG BAY BEACH.
Why is it that the two beaches with the most iconic views of Table Mountain are not Blue Flag beaches, have never been and likely wont be for a few years to come?
Its an embarrassment for us all, mostly for the City of Cape Town – beaches are its governing mandate.
Well done City for making no progress since 2009 on this – in fact these two beaches have gone backwards in terms of cleanliness, safety, sewerage and dog poo, the condition of the dunes and grassed areas, and so the list continues.
