beach permit
« on: July 28, 2019, 02:08:25 pm »
Hi guys, been a while since I posted anything.  Also a while since I have fished.

Was wondering if anyone can advice me on how to apply for a beach permit. Had a couple of curved balls over the last two years and I realy want to get back on the surf again bat cant walked that far any more. What will be needed? Can I ask my Dr to help with the application? 

Any advice will be appreciated

Cool . Sent you a mail . But in the interest of others , seeking this info .


Starters , you will need an application from your , or the local DAFF office , they should be able to email it to you .


Once you have fille dit out , you will need , to contact the disabled society of South Africa , the contact details are on the application that you have recieved from DAFF .


The hard part .


A government DR  , at a Govermemt clinic or hospital . No other specialist , private dr letters of what ever , they ONLY accept the govermemt DR letters  , there are no way around this .


He the gov DR will certify , that you are unable to walk or what ever .


Donít waist yuor time , if you have a hip , or a rugby injury , from the yesteryear . Or some excuse , broken foot or unfit , or too heavy LOL , qor anything like that , you Basicly have to be unable to walk , assisted walking or , be permanently wheelchair bound .


You can only access beaches that have access , and that you can safely navigate , without be a danger to the public .


You only get a number of meters in some cases , also the area you access you are responsible , for the distance you are allowed to drive on , youíre not allowed to taxi people ect .


Once you have sent away your application to the department , they have a meeting every 40 days to decide who gets these special permits .


Ok think this about covers it .
