Boundary of municipal entity to manage Cape Town Stadium to be extended<span><figure class="figure-credits left"><img class="responsive" alt="placeholder" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/stadium1.jpg" style="width:612px;" /><figcaption> <p> © City of Cape Town</p> </figcaption> </figure> <p>The original boundary of the municipal entity was limited to the area immediately surrounding the Cape Town Stadium. The City of Cape Town intends extending the functions of the municipal entity to include the management of the Green Point Urban Park, which was originally envisaged when the municipal entity was first recommended in January 2014. The original 2014 recommendation included the Green Point Urban Park in its analysis and business plan.</p><p>The proposed extended boundary will include the Green Point Athletics Track, all the sports fields, the golf course, and the urban park.</p><p>All interested and affected parties are able to submit their comments and input on the proposal to extend the functions of the municipal entity from today, 21 July 2017 until 21 August 2017.</p><p> ‘We have identified the need for an integrated approach for the management of the wider precinct. Therefore we are proposing that the original larger precinct be managed by the municipal entity. As part of our Organisational Development and Transformation Plan, we need to optimise the use of our natural and strategic assets in an integrated manner,’ said the City’s Acting Mayoral Committee Member for Finance, Councillor Stuart Diamond.</p><span>​<figure class="figure-credits right"><img class="responsive" alt="placeholder" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/Cape%20Town%20Stadium_interior1.jpg" style="width:511px;" /><figcaption> <p> © City of Cape Town</p> </figcaption> </figure> </span><p>The Cape Town Stadium, Green Point Athletics Track, and the Green Point Urban Park have over the past eight years received increased attention as priority assets in terms of event hosting, destination profiling, integrated spatial and facility management, environmental and heritage management, and commercial and economic development for the City.</p><p>‘Currently these assets are managed as a separate unit from other community and recreational facilities located in the urban park. This has over the years created differing operating and management standards, a fragmented approach to hosting events, and multiple entry points into the City pertaining to matters on this precinct. The need to consolidate all operations into an integrated management structure for greater impact is thus required. Commercial opportunities within these assets and sites will require a coordinated and integrated approach from a centralised position,’ added Councillor Diamond. </p><p>The functions of the entity would include general facility and operations; events and entertainment services management; commercialisation, marketing and hospitality management; finance, legal and administration management; and management of the Green Point Urban Park precinct.</p><p>The additional management requirements will necessitate an increased staff complement. A further six staff members would be seconded to the municipal entity. As with the other staff members, due process will be followed in respect of the secondment. The staff complement would be increased from 38 to 44. </p><p>The municipal entity will have the right of use over the Stadium precinct in terms of a long-term lease. A service delivery agreement will be entered into in respect of the management and operation of the Stadium and Green Point Urban Park precincts.</p><p>This entity will be a State-owned company, fully owned by the City. </p><p><br><strong>End</strong></p>​​</span>2017-07-20T22:00:00Z1

City doubles funding to SPCA<p>​The City of Cape Town has extended its agreement with the Cape of Good Hope SPCA to provide support services to the Law Enforcement Department. The first three-year service level agreement was worth R4,5 million and this time the City is increasing the allocation to R9 million for the same period.</p><span>​<figure class="figure-credits left"><img class="responsive" alt="placeholder" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/spca2.jpg" /><figcaption> <p>   © City of Cape Town</p> </figcaption> </figure> </span>The SPCA provides veterinary and general animal welfare services to the City that are required in terms of the Animal By-law but do not reside within the Law Enforcement Department, which is mandated to enforce the by-law.<p>The agreement effectively means that the SPCA supports Law Enforcement with the impoundment of stray animals or animals involved in attacks and homes them for the prescribed impoundment periods.</p><p>The City’s Animal Control Unit deals with hundreds of complaints every month, including domestic animal nuisances, roaming cattle, and other livestock and dog attacks. In the first five months of this year, the Unit impounded 140 animals, responded to 90 animal attacks and served 124 compliance notices in terms of the Animal By-law.</p><span>​<figure class="figure-credits right"><img class="responsive" alt="placeholder" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/spca1.jpg" /><figcaption> <p>   © City of Cape Town</p> </figcaption> </figure> </span>‘Partnering with an animal welfare organisation like the SPCA is of utmost importance to the City and there is immense value in outsourcing animal welfare matters to those with the requisite experience instead of trying to recreate that capacity within the City. This focus on partnerships is in line with our Organisational Development and Transformation Plan and most importantly it helps us protect more animals that are left destitute and build safer communities by addressing threats where they exist.<p>‘I think the fact that we doubled our funding is a clear intent of our commitment to the cause of animals, but society in general. With this new agreement, the City of Cape Town provides more funding for animal welfare than any other municipality in the country,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security; and Social Services, Alderman JP Smith.</p><p>During the last financial year the SPCA provided much-needed services to 9 279 stray animals, 132 seized animals and 208 impounded animals. The funding provided for these animals by the City of Cape Town contributed significantly towards their welfare by enabling the organisation to maintain the highest standards of animal husbandry and care, while providing a safe and comfortable haven for these animals.</p><span>​<figure class="figure-credits left"><img class="responsive" alt="placeholder" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/spca3.jpg" /><figcaption> <p> © City of Cape Town</p> </figcaption> </figure></span>‘The benefits derived from the signing of this service level agreement will allow us to focus on our core business, the prevention of cruelty to animals, instead of being preoccupied with raising sorely needed operating funds to take care of the city’s many thousands of stray, impounded and seized animals admitted into our care following the curtailment of services offered by the Atlantis Pound.<p>‘The City has consistently demonstrated its sincere commitment to the welfare and well-being of animals by enabling not only the SPCA, but the Cape Animal Welfare Forum to deliver a world-class service that would otherwise be out of reach for many indigent animal owners – including subsistence livestock keepers and working horse owners – by co-funding projects and promulgating and enforcing legislation to help ensure the rights of animals. Long may this partnership endure,’ said Cape of Good Hope SPCA CEO, Allan Perrins.</p><p><br><strong>End</strong><br></p>2017-07-19T22:00:00Z1
Drought crisis: more than 100 private sector water ideas being scrutinised<p>​The City thanks all of the private sector players who took part in this process. The RFI solicited interest from for-profit and non-profit entities in forming possible partnerships with the City to supply, install, and operate temporary plants at various locations along the sea shore and at certain inland locations, for the injection of drinking water – the standards of which are defined by SANS 241 of 2015 – into the City’s water distribution network. </p><p>‘Our Water and Sanitation Management Department is currently busy with the technical scrutiny of the inputs received. We will communicate in more detail as soon as possible. The proposed solutions are varied, as one would expect from a wide ranging call for information and ideas. It must be stressed that the temporary installation of water plants is intended to build resilience and to ensure that the households and businesses of Cape Town are not adversely affected by acute shortages of surface water. </p><p>‘Furthermore, it is important to distinguish between the inability to cater for water demand under normal climatic conditions and the inability to cater for demand due to an extreme and protracted drought. The latter applies to us. The intensity of the current severe drought could not have been foreseen. The City has been using water well under its registered allocation as per the requirements of the National Department of Water and Sanitation. Despite our population growth, our water demand has remained relatively flat,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Informal Settlements, Water and Waste Services; and Energy, Councillor Xanthea Limberg.</p><p>Due to the unprecedented protracted drought that we are currently experiencing and the unpredictability of rainfall patterns going forward due to climate change, the City has adopted a resilience-based approach whereby various supply schemes are being accelerated and which could be scaled up quickly if required. </p><p>‘Not only do we seek to navigate the City safely out of this drought period, but we seek to ensure that over the medium- to long-term we put in place the required measures to ensure that we can withstand future droughts, no matter their intensity,’ said Councillor Limberg. </p><p>For information on how to adhere to the less than 87-litre usage requirement, residents should please visit the water restrictions page on the City’s website: <a href="http://www.capetown.gov.za/thinkwater">www.capetown.gov.za/thinkwater</a> and visit our new water calculator <a href="http://bit.ly/ThinkWaterCalculatorCT">http://bit.ly/ThinkWaterCalculatorCT</a></p><p>Residents can contact the City via email to <a href="mailto:water@capetown.gov.za">water@capetown.gov.za</a> for queries 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>Water supplied by the City remains safe to drink and is tested in accordance with the most rigorous safety standards.</p><span><div class="image-gallery-slider img-gal-1" id="img-gal-1" data-slides="3" data-slide="1" style="height:493.5px;"><div class="image-gallery-content" style="height:414px;">​​​​ <figure class="itemSlide slide-left slide-1"> <img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/CRISES2.jpg" alt="" /> <figcaption class="image-slide-text" style="display:none;"> <p>   More than 100 private sector water ideas being scrutinised</p> </figcaption> </figure> <figure class="itemSlide slide-left slide-2"> <img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/CRISES1.jpg" alt="" /> <figcaption class="image-slide-text" style="display:none;"> <p>   more than 100 private sector water ideas being scrutinised</p> </figcaption> </figure> <figure class="itemSlide slide-left slide-3">          <figcaption class="image-slide-text" style="display:none;">             </figcaption><figcaption class="image-slide-text" style="display:none;"></figcaption></figure></div><div class="image-gallery-control"><div class="image-gallery-nav"><div class="slide-next"> <i class="icon arrow-white-next"></i> </div><div class="slide-prev"> <i class="icon arrow-white-prev"></i>​</div></div></div></div>​​</span><p><br><strong>End</strong><br></p>2017-07-19T22:00:00Z1
