The Vlok entrance will now be the main entrance and the Van der Walt entrance only open during peak times (times advertised on the gate). We have definitely not thought of all possible scenarios, …

Closure Delay

Due to the fact that we are still waiting for the municipality to install the electrical meter to the Guard House, we cannot operate the electronic boom in Vlok Street. As such the formal closure cannot take place until we have electricity. The committee apologises for the delay which is totally beyond our control.

Armed Robbery – Saturday 21 February

On Saturday, around mid-day (12:00), there was an armed robbery at one of our complexes. A maroon car was basically waiting for the first opportunity to enter a complex when a Debonairs pizza delivery bike came to deliver food… No-one is physically harmed, but this was simply because there was a lot more people inside …

Return Of The Cones

Our application have passed the advertisement stage with no objections lodged.

Request

It will help the guards a great deal if they know which service vehicles to expect entering our area. We would like to request that residents let us know when they expect any builders/plumbers/etc through the day so we can notify the guards to expect these vehicles.
