St Francis Bay Property Owners

Saving St Francis


Long Term Coastal Protection Solution in St Francis Bay 

(Restoration of our River, Spit and Beach) 


Welcome to St Francis Property Owners, an association representing the future of the greater St Francis to ensure that the region grows from strength to strength and becomes not only South Africa’s premier holiday destination but as importantly, a place to live, own property or start a business.

St Francis Property Owners Association is made up of the original St Francis Bay Ratepayers Association and a non-profit company (NPC) formed to administer the recently approved Special Rates Area (SRA). The Ratepayers Association is administered by a committee voted in by the residents of St Francis Bay each year and the NPC is served by a board of Directors appointed members of the non-profit company.


THE purpose of a Special Rates Area (SRA), which is based on international best practice, is to enhance and supplement municipal services and aims to achieve this through a co-operative approach in order to halt the degeneration of the area and facilitate upliftment, so promoting economic growth and sustainable development.

This SRA focuses on:

restoration of the river, spit and beach – priority 1
upgrading our roads – priority 2
implementing CCTV camera surveillance – priority 3
