The Hout Bay Residents & Ratepayers Association


The underlying core belief of the Hout Bay Residents and Ratepayers Association (HBRRA) is that the economy is a wholly-owned subsidiary of ecology, that without the environment there can be no economy. We focus on the environment of Hout Bay in its broadest sense – human, natural, heritage and built – and we strive to protect the interests of all who live or work here.

Our guiding principle is to inform, encourage and harness the energy of the community of Hout Bay for the common good of all who live here. To this end we liaise closely with our Ward Councillor and bring issues of community concern to his attention and the attention of other authorities through the various public participation mechanisms available.
