Municipal court sets up shop in Strand Street Concourse<span><p>​​​​​​The City’s municipal courts deal specifically with municipal matters such as traffic and by-law offences. The Cape Town municipal court has been operational since the end of January this year at its new location along the Strand Street Concourse..</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/Strans%20street%20court1.jpg" alt="" style="width:948px;" /> </figure>​​<span>​​​​​​<p>Fines imposed in terms of the applicable by-laws are payable at the court on weekdays between 08:00 and 15:00.</p><p>The Strand Street Concourse is currently a hive of activity with the finishing touches being put to this revamped space. </p><p>Upon completion, the public interface services along the concourse will include two municipal courts, ATMs, a centre management office, a camera surveillance room and refurbished public ablution facilities. In addition, office space is being fitted to accommodate the City’s Social Development and Early Childhood Development; and Enterprise and Investment Departments.<br>                             <br>These offices will operate during normal working hours (08:00 to 16:30) and the pedestrian thoroughfare will be closed from 22:00 to 06:00 daily for security reasons.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/strand%20street%20cout2.jpg" alt="" style="width:948px;" /> </figure></span></span><p>‘One of the key priorities of the City’s Organisational Development and Transformation Plan is to become a more customer-centric organisation. Thousands of residents make their way to the city centre on a daily basis and many make use of the Strand Street Concourse as a thoroughfare. It therefore makes perfect sense to have municipal services available within easy reach, thus taking services closer to our residents. I am sure that once the revamp has been completed, the pedestrians will be back in their numbers to make use of this public space again which will be a lot more comfortable than it was before,’ said Councillor Diamond.</p><p>The concourse was officially opened as a pedestrian thoroughfare in August last year after a major refit.</p><p><br><strong>End</strong><br></p><span>​​</span>2018-04-02T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#fc9547df-3ce1-4c9a-8f7d-3c550ad21fe3;L0|#0fc9547df-3ce1-4c9a-8f7d-3c550ad21fe3|municipal court;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#29e39a5a-e609-4189-a4db-9cee8a24dc95;L0|#029e39a5a-e609-4189-a4db-9cee8a24dc95|Upgrade1
