A fence will be erected at a lookout point at Voelklip beach, west of Herolds Bay as the 100m plunge continues to claim lives.

Eight people died in the area from November 3, 2015 to April 29, 2016.

Most recently a 52-year-old woman,  Zonita Basson lost her life when her Chevrolet Spark plunged down the cliff into the sea, at about 9.45pm on Tuesday. 

On October 22 Heidi Scheepers and her two children, Hugo and Cuzzette went missing after their vehicle a VW Caravelle plunged off the same cliff.

Details emerged on Thursday, from a George city council meeting that a fence will be erected at  the Voëlklip beach lookout point.

City planning and development deputy director, Delia Power said the area which is situated on private owned land will also have a parking lot built as the owner wants cars to have parking space far from the cliffs.

In the meanwhile Power is awaiting feedback from the Department of Environmental Affairs with regards to regulations on coastal access and also whether such a fence is permissible.
