Description: Swartland Local Municipality has its head office and main infrastructure based in Malmesbury, which is situated 70km north of Cape Town on the N7. In 1743, Malmesbury began as a settlement in the wide Diep River Valley around a mineral source and fountains in the area. The town was officially proclaimed on 21 May 1827 and was named after the Governor of the Cape, Sir Lowry Cole’s father-in-law, the first Earl of Malmesbury in England. The town obtained municipal status in 1860. Malmesbury fulfils an important urban niche in the region and the province. Its high development potential can be attributed to factors such as its relative accessibility along the N7 road/rail corridor; closeness to Cape Town; diversified economic base, which not only accommodates agriculture but also well-developed industrial and commercial sectors; and supportive infrastructure. The high property values in the Cape Town Metropole and the attraction of a local tranquil atmosphere are moving people to settle here and commute to Cape Town on a daily basis. Malmesbury is home to a number of large companies, as well as regional offices of provincial and national government departments.Cities/Towns:

- S71 Audited figures are prior year audited figures sourced from the MFMA S71 Schedule C reports.
- If the relevant S71 Schedule C figures are unavailable, prior year audited figures may be taken from the relevant Audited Financial Statements. The source is then indicated as AFS. Links are provided under the Resources section on this site.
- S71 Schedule C reports are in the format for monthly and quarterly municipal financial statements as prescribed by the Municipal Budget and Reporting Regulations. S71 Schedule C figures are standardised to the prescribed format and may differ from figures shown in the Audited Financial Statements. Where we have captured figures directly from the Audited Financial Statements, we have endeavoured to follow the S71 Schedule C format.

If the figures are unavailable in this report, they may be sourced from the Annual Financial Statements of the relevant municipality.
