The local boxing club will also be able to use the new equipment,’ said Alderman Smith.  </p><p>‘I asked for the equipment to be sourced after visiting them during a tournament some months ago. At the time I marvelled at the enthusiasm and passion of the young boxers. I was also upset because of their lack of equipment, broken gloves and the fact that they had to share equipment transporting it from one match to the other. They deserve the best possible equipment and opportunities to be the next South African champions,’ added Alderman Smith.</p><span><figure class="figure-credits right"><img class="responsive" alt="placeholder" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/boxing3.jpg" style="width:502px;" /><figcaption> <p> © City of Cape Town</p> </figcaption> </figure> <p>The Dunoon Recreation Hub has partnered with the Inkwenkwezi Boxing Club since 2012 and this partnership has contributed significantly to the development of boxing in the Dunoon community. Currently there are 17 youths aged between 11 and 25 who are members of the boxing club. </p><p>‘Boxing is not only a good way to work off stress, but it also provides a good full-body workout. Boxing improves hand-eye coordination, body strength, and is good for cardiovascular health and burning calories,’ said Alderman Smith.</p><p>The R52 000 worth of equipment includes boxing gloves, punching bags, speed balls, head-gear, skipping ropes, digital body weight scales, and training targets. </p><span>​<figure class="figure-credits left"><img class="responsive" alt="placeholder" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/boxing2.jpg" style="width:507px;" /><figcaption> <p> © City of Cape Town</p> </figcaption> </figure></span></span></span>The equipment will assist in further developing the sport of boxing in the Dunoon community and keeping the youth of Dunoon engaged in healthy activities.<p>‘The value of participating in sport cannot be underestimated. Work ethic, dedication, respect and team work are just some of the social values that are cultivated. Sport also reinforces a self-esteem and a positive attitude. The City is committed to providing opportunities for all residents, in line with our Organisational Development and Transformation Plan, and this is just one way of giving our young people the skills they need,’ said Alderman Smith.</p><p><br><strong>End</strong><br></p><span><span></span><p> </p>​​</span>2017-09-20T22:00:00Z1
City invites public to view City-owned sites earmarked for affordable housing development This date marks a momentous occasion as we embark on developing prime land for at least 4 000 lower-income households in Salt River, Woodstock and the inner-city<p>‘We will issue the prospectus for the development of social, affordable and inclusionary housing opportunities on well-located City-owned land on 29 September 2017. This date marks a momentous occasion as we embark on developing prime land for at least 4 000 lower-income households in Salt River, Woodstock and the inner-city. </p><p>‘The importance of this precinct-led development cannot be overstated: apart from the scale and the fact that thousands of households stand to benefit from these opportunities, it also marks a break with apartheid spatial planning where our urban form is defined by poorer families living on the fringes. </p><p>‘We need our residents, the private sector, and non-governmental organisations in the housing realm to support us to make a success of these developments. I therefore urge the public to please make the time to visit our exhibition on one of these open days. We want all Capetonians, and in particular those living and working in these suburbs, to contribute and participate in the processes in the months to come,’ said Councillor Herron.</p><p>The open days will be hosted at the Cape Town Science Centre at 370 Main Road, in Observatory:</p><ul><li><div style="text-align:left;">on Friday 29 September 2017 from 15:00 to 19:00</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">on Saturday 30 September 2017 from 09:00 to 14:00</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">on Sunday 1 October 2017 from 10:00 to 15:00</div></li></ul><p>The last open day coincides with the Open Streets Day along Main Road where sections of the M4 in Salt River and Woodstock will be closed for vehicular traffic between 08:00 and 16:00.</p><p>‘This is the ideal opportunity for residents and interested parties to walk over to the Cape Town Science Centre. We will be exhibiting maps of the 11 City-owned sites which are to be developed so that the public can see the exact location of the land. More information about the specific sites and our vision for the precinct will be available as well,’ said Councillor Herron.</p><p>Those visiting the open days will also have the opportunity to share their ideas with the City. </p><p>‘Going forward, the City will follow a partnership approach where we will collaborate with all relevant stakeholders and, most importantly, with the people who currently live and work in Woodstock and Salt River. I have already met with some residents and ratepayers’ associations over the past weeks and we have hosted our first informal housing dialogue with developers from the private sector and representatives from civic organisations earlier this month,’ said Councillor Herron.</p><p>There will be ongoing public information sessions, dialogues, workshops and other relevant forums in the months ahead.</p><p>‘We will keep on engaging with the local community, residents, and other role-players as the development processes for these sites unfold. I am excited about the future of Woodstock and Salt River and the opportunity we now have to create a new urban fabric where lower-income families live on well-located land close to public transport and work,’ said Councillor Herron.</p><p><br><strong>End</strong></p><p> </p><p> </p><p>​</p>2017-09-20T22:00:00Z1

City to install water management devices on all excessive usage propertiesThe City of Cape Town will be installing water management devices on the properties of all excessive water users<p>​The City of Cape Town will be installing water management devices on the properties of all excessive water users, irrespective of the reason for the high usage, as has been the case to date. This new measure is part of the City’s efforts to immediately drive down consumption to 500 million litres per day of collective usage. It also signals the severity of the situation. </p><p>The winter rainfall season, the lowest on record, is now effectively over. While the City brings online new non-surface water options to supplement surface water from dams, the single most important action that still needs to be prioritised is reducing consumption.</p><p>There are currently more than 50 000 identified excessive usage properties across the metro. High users are regarded as those generally using more than 20 000 litres per month and this is also in line with the new Level 5 restrictions which will penalise those using more than this volume. The City will aim to install approximately 2 000 water management devices per week over the short-term. This comprises high users in the indigent and non-indigent categories. The processes guiding indigent persons will be followed. The City will start at the highest users and move downwards according to consumption records for those properties. </p><p>Where excessive usage cannot be justified, water management devices are already being installed. Existing excessive users have been engaged with already and new identified excessive users will receive warning letters as has been the practice. </p><p>All devices installed on high user connections will be set at 350 litres per day. </p><p>It must be emphasised that a process for representation to justify high usage may be made by the consumer in certain events, such as that the household comprises significantly more than four persons. The 87-litre per person limit remains in place. The request will entail the device to be set to 87 litres multiplied by the number of confirmed residents who permanently reside on the property. This application will be done through submitting an affidavit available as part of the process.

The procurement processes for various projects under the emergency supply programme is under way. The latter actions form part of the approach to building water resilience over the short- to medium-term.</p><p>The City is also finalising its comprehensive operational contingency plan in the event that dam levels decline to below 15% of dam storage levels. This plan will be finalised by the end of September 2017 as has been communicated before. Details will be communicated early in October 2017. </p><p>In order to get through as much of the expected harsh summer ahead, consumption must be reduced to 500 million litres per day. This target has been in place since 1 July 2017. But, as at Monday 18 September 2017, consumption was 624 million litres per day. </p><p>We thank those who have been saving diligently. But we do need to act further against delinquent users who show a flagrant disregard for Team Cape Town.</p><p>I want to assure all residents that we will move mountains to ensure that we survive the drought and thrive. We have the expertise, vision, commitment and top-notch operational and management practices that have been established over the years and that make this metro a leader in South Africa. </p><p>Addressing the lack of water in our system can only be done if all residents collectively contribute to help us to mitigate this crisis. As a City, we will do whatever it takes to get through this great challenge. We will act within the confines of the law and not erratically and we will use all of our powers and responsibilities in accordance with our disaster status. </p><p>Again, getting through this unprecedented drought is our priority. </p><p>For information on how to meet the 87-litre per day usage requirement, residents should please visit the water restrictions page on the City’s website: <a href="http://www.capetown.gov.za/thinkwater" target="_blank">www.capetown.gov.za/thinkwater</a> and utilise our water calculator: <a href="http://bit.ly/ThinkWaterCalculatorCT" target="_blank">http://bit.ly/ThinkWaterCalculatorCT</a></p><p>Residents can contact the City via email to <a href="mailto:water@capetown.gov.za" target="_blank">water@capetown.gov.za</a> for queries about the water pressure reduction, or to report contraventions of the water restrictions (evidence should be provided to assist the City’s enforcement efforts), or they can send an SMS to 31373.</p><p>Please note that normal supply could be disrupted in order to lower demand. This is part of the aggressive pressure reduction programmes in place which are set to be intensified. </p><p>Water supplied by the City remains safe to drink and is tested in accordance with safety standards.</p><p>Please check your water usage by registering on e-services <a href="http://cct.gov.za/sh5O5" target="_blank">http://cct.gov.za/sh5O5</a>.
