Cape Town recognised as Africa’s opportunity city Cape Town is recognised as Africa’s opportunity city <p>​Today, I am encouraged to see that Cape Town is recognised as Africa’s opportunity city but, in order for us to stay globally competitive, we need to take the city to the next level and create opportunities for all.<br> <br>A key intervention is for the City of Cape Town to decisively address apartheid spatial planning that keeps the majority of our residents away from opportunities to jobs, good education and healthcare. We also need to improve safety in these communities and support business development.<br> <br>The City must be a catalyst for better integration of communities by speeding up release of the 11 identified pieces of land in Woodstock and the city centre while developing the Foreshore Freeway project. More pieces of government-owned land must also be made available for the development of affordable housing. This will bring more Capetonians closer to opportunities, increasing our talent offering to international companies wanting to invest here.<br> <br>PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PwC) has recognised Cape Town as the top opportunity city in Africa and placed the city 6th among middle-income country cities - behind Beijing, Kuala Lumpur, Moscow, Shanghai and Mexico City.<br> <br>Cape Town’s standing as an opportunity city was confirmed in the latest labour force survey results issued by Statistics SA. The report found that employment in the metro grew 4,8% year-on-year. Cape Town is also the metro with the lowest expanded unemployment rate at 22,6%. This figure is far below the national rate of 37,2%.<br>However, PwC Africa’s head of Cities and Urbanisation, Jon Williams, was correct to say that ‘Cape Town is at a crossroads between African problems and global ambitions. Its future success will depend on its ability to solve longstanding problems at home while keeping up with a rapidly changing world.’<br> <br>These longstanding problems include access to opportunities for the majority of our residents. We have shown innovation in the tech fields and Cape Town is home to over 20 tech incubators. But, as the report shows, many of these opportunities are based close to the city centre or along the Atlantic seaboard.<br> <br>If Cape Town wants to remain globally competitive, we must bring residents closer to opportunities and be a catalyst for job creation and investment as outlined by the City’s he Organisational Development and Transformation Plan (ODTP).<br> <br>The City’s support of catalytic industries has been one of the key successes and this sector is also showing growth as we attract more investment to Cape Town and more residents find employment and receive training in key skills areas.<br> <br>In the past three months, between April and June 2018, through the City’s support of Wesgro and our special purpose vehicles, we facilitated almost R1,4 billion worth of investment, created 1 236 jobs and trained 912 residents.<br> <br>The City has identified priority sectors with the potential to grow and develop the city’s economy. These sectors include information communication and technology (ICT); business process outsourcing (BPO); craft and design; clothing, textiles and fashion; and renewable energy, among others.<br> <br>Through Wesgro the City facilitated seven investments that amount to R1,1 billion. The biggest investment was in the ICT sector from a UK-based company that saw 150 new jobs being created. The six other investments were in agriculture waste-to-energy; the oil and gas industry; the manufacturing and textiles industry; real estate; and the water provision sector. In addition, 35 new investment projects were fed into the pipeline. <br> <br>Independent data and information collated and summarised in the PwC Cities of Opportunity report shows that Cape Town’s overall ‘opportunity score’ is higher relative to other cities with equivalent per capita GDP scores. The report benchmarks Cape Town against 31 of the world’s leading cities across 66 indicators of urban success. Globally Cape Town ranked 24th out of all the cities ranked.<br> <br>A powerful signal to the public, business and investors is that Cape Town is ranked first amongst all of the middle income cities assessed, and even ahead of some high income cities like LA and Tokyo, for its transport and infrastructure.<br> <br>Our investment in MyCiti is showing how we are connecting communities to economic opportunities and to each other. This is unlocking more opportunities for our residents. In 2011, MyCiti provided just 3 million passenger journeys in its first year and, within 5 years, we have seen 20 million passenger journeys.<br> <br>But challenges still remain with our poor commuter rail system that falls within the powers of national government. Many of our challenges require the City to work with provincial and national government. <br> <br>In addition to building a better transport network and enabling economic opportunities through attracting investment and training, we are also delivering on our promise to provide housing to those most in need.<br> <br>At the end of the 2017/18 financial year in June 2018, the City, for the first time in its 18-year history as the metro government, exceeded its housing delivery target by 62%.  <br> <br>Despite many challenges, Cape Town is on track to grow our opportunity city. But, to remain globally competitive, we have to take the City to the next level and bring our residents closer to opportunities.<br> <br><strong> </strong><br><strong>End </strong></p>2018-08-18T22:00:00Z1
Mayoral Pop-Up Office takes local government to Pelican ParkThe City of Cape Town is making a lot of progress in Pelican Park and this morning, as part of the Mayoral Pop-Up Office initiative, <p>The City of Cape Town is making a lot of progress in Pelican Park and this morning, as part of the Mayoral Pop-Up Office initiative, I visited the area along with Cllr Gerry Gordon and Council Chief Whip, Cllr Shaun August.</p><p>Over the last few months we have worked to improve communication with residents by taking local government to communities through the Mayoral Pop-Up Office. </p><p>This to ensure that our residents have a platform where they can share their concerns about service delivery, as well as their ideas on how the City can improve services to the community. </p><p>Through this innovative concept, we are also able to provide Capetonians with information on services and give updates on projects in their communities. </p><p>We started our day with a visit to the Tehillah Educare Centre in Seawinds where we donated a geyser to the facility and visited beneficiaries of the Pelican Park housing development.  </p><p>This morning we also took the opportunity to visit the proposed site of Phase 2 of the Pelican Park housing development which is to benefit more than 2 300 residents.</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/pelican%20park%20pop%20up3.jpg" alt="" style="width:948px;" /> <figcaption class="image-slide-text" style="display:none;"> <p> <a title="title" href="#"> <b></b></a> Mayoral Pop-Up Office initiative</p> </figcaption> </figure> <figure class="itemSlide slide-left slide-2"> <img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/pelican%20park%20pop%20up.jpg" alt="" style="width:903px;" /> <figcaption class="image-slide-text" style="display:none;"> <p> <b></b> Mayoral Pop-Up Office initiative</p> </figcaption> </figure> <figure class="itemSlide slide-left slide-3"> <img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/pelican%20park%20pop%20up2.jpg" alt="" style="width:1372px;" /> <figcaption class="image-slide-text" style="display:none;">  Mayoral Pop-Up Office initiative </figcaption> </figure> </div><div class="image-gallery-control"><div class="image-gallery-caption"><p> <a title="title" href="#"> <b>Aerial view of Cape Town</b></a> - Loren ipsum dolor sit amet loren ipsum dolor sit amet Loren ipsum dolor sit amet.</p></div><div class="image-gallery-nav"><div class="nav-info">1 of 3</div><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> </p><p>The City has already appointed a professional team of consultants for the project which will deliver approximately 2 330 state-subsidised, GAP and market-related houses.</p><p>Phase 2 housing will be in addition to the 2 013 State-subsidised homes the City has already delivered to residents in Pelican Park over the last five years. We have since also handed over more than 900 title deeds to new homeowners.</p><p>In addition, I made a stop at the site of the clinic in Pelican Park where the City has invested R46 million for the construction of the new facility. The clinic will be completed later this year. </p><p>The facility will provide a full basket of services to residents of Pelican Park, Lotus River and surrounds once it is operational.</p><p>Cllr Gordon, working with the subcouncil and City officials, has been at the coalface of service delivery in ward 67 and led a work readiness training programme for 60 young people from the ward in the previous financial year. More funds have been set aside for the programme to ensure that other youth continue to benefit in the 2018/19 financial year.</p><p>The Pop-Up Office is one of the Mayor’s Office’s new initiatives to make government more accessible, responsive, and I believe it is always vital to engage with residents about the City’s services face-to-face.</p><p>The City’s Organisational Development and Transformation Plan’s (ODTP) goal of building a customer-centric administration that is responsive to the needs of our residents is realised through the Mayoral Pop-Up Office. </p><p>Today it was enlightening to meet a resident who was among the first 100 beneficiaries of the Pelican Park housing development five years ago. Mrs Gwendelen Clarke moved into her home in 2013 after spending years living in a backyard with her husband and their children.  </p><p>Mr Ronnie Adams, who lives with his daughter, took ownership of his house in Pelican Park two years ago. Mr Adams, originally from Hanover Park, is pleased that he was finally off the housing waiting list and has his own home. </p><p>Our interaction with residents does not end with the Pop-Up Office and I would like to encourage residents to keep connecting with their area-based Mayco members, ward councillors and subcouncil offices on a regular basis so that they can be informed of developments in their wards and work with us to build safe and inclusive communities.</p><p>Since kicking off the Mayoral Pop-Up Office two months ago, we have visited six communities and dealt with more than 100 individual complaints ranging from housing queries to water billing and refuse collection. </p><p>In one instance, following our engagement in Athlone, illegal dumping was removed immediately. The City also ordered additional refuse bins for a block of flats in Kewtown and we have resolved a payment issue for EPWP workers stationed in the area.</p><p>In Masiphumelele, where residents mostly raised issues around a lack of housing, the City has conducted a two-day registration drive in the community. More than 800 people were registered during that campaign. </p><p>We have taken this concept to Eerste River, Khayelitsha and Albow Gardens and will visit even more areas in the coming weeks as part of our commitment to ensuring the best quality of service for all residents of this great city.</p><p><br><strong>End</strong></p>2018-08-16T22:00:00Z1
City Parks spring into action to mow parks and vergesThe City of Cape Town’s Recreation and Parks Department is aware that their mowing programme this time of year causes equal doses of delight and dismay.<p>The City of Cape Town’s Recreation and Parks Department is aware that their mowing programme this time of year causes equal doses of delight and dismay.</p><p>‘Mowing always causes controversy, especially around spring, as some residents are delighted with trimmed lawns while others prefer the wild abandon of flowers. The department has started to mow our parks, open spaces, cemeteries and metro road verges, even though there has already been an explosion of annuals and perennials which germinates in the wet soils, during the warmer temperatures,’ said the City of Cape Town’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security; and Social Services, Alderman JP Smith. </p><p>Many residents and visitors to the areas where the flowers occur contend that they should be left untouched and not mowed until the seeds have ripened and dropped. </p><p>Some of these blooming arrivals are remnants of indigenous renosterbos and strandveld, which can transform open spaces into Namaqualand-type flower shows. </p><p>Other vegetation making their appearance includes weed grasses such as Common wild oats and broadleaf weeds such as Patterson’s curse. These weeds quickly push their flower heads upwards and reach 1,5 metres high, even within a matter of days after being mowed.</p><p>‘Mowing causes contention. Residents complain every year, either for areas to be mowed or for the wild flowers to be left undisturbed. Each spring we have numerous requests for both,’ said Alderman Smith. </p><p>Recreation and Parks officials are committed to prompt and effective service delivery as the city has more than 6,461 hectares of land to be mowed, which is no small task. </p><p>‘Depending on the conservation element that needs to be protected mowing programmes take conservation principles into account. Therefore, there are many open areas throughout the city, including identified biodiversity areas or nature sensitive areas where mowing does not take place and where spring flowers can be seen. However, all efforts are being made to keep our parks and sidewalks tidy and properly maintained,’ said Alderman Smith.</p><p>Generally, if residents want the City to stop cutting grass in a certain park, they need to submit their request in writing to their local Recreation and Parks Department with signatures of support from neighbours, indicating that they agree with the request. Staff are then instructed not to mow those parks while the spring flowers are in bloom, usually during September and October.</p><p>‘The only risk is that we may receive complaints from people who feel that the uncut grass is untidy and not being properly maintained. Due to the conducive weather conditions of spring, fast growth of grass can be expected. Grass on the sidewalks would still need to be cut in order to ensure that safety standards are upheld and there is clear visibility for pedestrians and motorists. </p><p>‘We should also not underestimate the impact that the drought has had over the past years, in seeds not germinating or flowering as much as in previous years when there was enough water. We will truly see the impact in September and October. At the moment it is still winter and the flowers that bloom now are sporadic due to the sudden warm weather and recent rainfall,’ added Alderman Smith.</p><p>The City is committed to making Cape Town an inclusive place where residents feel safe and proud of their parks. </p><p>Concerns about uncut grass in parks and on sidewalks, can be directed to <a>021 400 9538</a> or <a>021 400 4688</a> or <a>021 400 9538</a>.</p><p> <strong>End</strong></p>2018-08-15T22:00:00Z1
