Wynberg Village is an area with unique heritage value in Cape Town. It has a special status as an urban conservation area in terms of the City of Cape Town’s town planning scheme. This came about as a result of the efforts of residents and other concerned citizens, recorded as far back as 1959, but gaining momentum in 1980 with the formation of a Wynberg Advisory Committee, whose purpose was to liaise with and advise the Cape Town City Council and the National Monuments Commission with regard to the preservation of buildings in Wynberg. Arising out of these efforts, the Old Wynberg Village Society was formed on 26 March 1993, and through constant liaison with residents, property owners and the Cape Town City Council, today plays a critical role in preserving this historical conservation area. The Village has also become an interesting tourist attraction.
