Driving In Our Area

Firstly, thank you to all for making this initiative a success. It’s great to see more people walking and more children playing in our area and feeling safe to do so. We have had many complaints about the driving style of some of our residents. Our job is to oversee the security operations of the boom and …

Vodacom Fibre Update

Vodacom are doing a survey on Friday of our area to assess the costs (and so viability) of installing fibre for our area. Since they have to apply to the municipality for permission to dig trenches, and given the time of year, we are very eager to push this as hard as we can, however …

New Process

Since we started with the new boom process we have had a few issues which I think we can see as teething problems. However, guards that simply open the gate for unknown vehicles are NOT tolerated and we fired the first one today for just that. I ask you all to please let us know …

After 3 and half years of very interesting and testing times, we are finally closing our area tomorrow morning at 9am. 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, …
