It’s official: Midvaal is best – The DA and Fine & Country (Walkerville property experts) are both proud to be part of it. A report from the Gauteng Planning Commission’s ‘Quality of Life Survey’ ranks the DA-run Midvaal Municipality, the only DA-run municipality in Gauteng, as the province’s top municipality for quality of life.
The report also shows that more than half of all residents are very satisfied with local government, which is extremely noteworthy, as municipal governance is the coalface of service delivery, without which development efforts will collapse into service delivery protests as we see daily in South Africa.
Unemployment in the Midvaal is far below that of other run municipalities in Gauteng.
This in turn reflects the municipality’s ability to attract investment – by companies such as Heineken and Ferrero Rocher, which in turn creates employment for local residents. Midvaal also has the lowest rate of absolute destitution and alienation.
All the above is positive proof that the DA’s vision of an Open Opportunity Society is the path to a bright future which will result in tangible and lasting benefits to all South Africans. Walkerville is proud to be part of the Midvaal Municipality. It offers a distinct flavour of peaceful rural living, within easy reach of Johannesburg. The greater Walkerville property area comprises the communities of Walkerville, Walkerville Manor, Walkers Fruit Farms, Homestead Apple Orchards, Golfview, Blignautsrus, Hartzenbergfontein, Drumblade, Blue Saddle Ranches, De Deur to the South and Eikenhof to the north.
