Social cluster to conduct oversight visits in the Overberg

The social cluster of standing committees of the Western Cape Provincial Parliament is to conduct oversight visits to institutions in the Overberg from 16 to 20 May.


This cluster consists of the following standing committees: Community Safety, Cultural Affairs and Sport, and Community Development, Education and Premier. The joint visit week is a key mechanism established by the Western Cape Provincial Parliament to achieve its constitutional oversight mandate within the province. It is intended to ensure that Members of the Provincial Parliament, through its standing committees, continuously remain abreast with developments, social and service delivery issues in the province.


It will also afford the cluster the opportunity to undertake oversight visits and interact with communities and institutions in order to assess the needs and challenges they experience.
