Heritage Resources Management sub-section
The purpose of heritage resources management is for the systematic identification, conservation, protection and promotion of Drakenstein’s rich and diverse cultural heritage, for the benefit of the people and future generations. The municipality is one of the key cultural historical hubs of the Western Cape and contains many resources which are of scientific, environmental, architectural, artistic, social, technological, intangible or historical significance. Many of these assets have a local, communal value and some have been formally protected as part of the national estate; while others are internationally recognised, such as the Cape Floral World Heritage Site, which forms the eastern border of the municipality. These heritage assets are non-renewable resources which can bring social, economic and environmental benefits through their responsible management and conservation.
