What’s the attraction

Between 2018 and 2022, construction plans worth R 2.0 billion and R 1.8 billion were passed in the Saldanha Bay and Swartland municipal areas.

The Weskus appeals as a place for retirees and families seeking a life away from the cities are surging to.

What’s the attraction?

The region is a place of remarkable diversity and economic vitality with breathtaking landscapes of sea, fishing, citrus farms, vineyards, and wheatfields.

The local economy was valued at R 30.0 billion in 2021, centred around economic hubs such as Malmesbury, Vredenburg, Vredendal, and Langebaan.

Load-shedding and input costs are universal challenges, but the Weskus’s economy has demonstrated resilience, recording a marginal contraction in 2021 followed by a robust recovery in 202. Indications are that 2024 will be a major rebound year driven by the agriculture and construction sectors, along with strategic investment and industrial development markets.

Weskus is a region of resilience, economic diversity, and natural beauty.
