Boards and nails may have been used to close up the former public toilets next to the bridge club in Green Point to prevent homeless people sleeping there, but this is only a temporary solution. The toilets, situated on Main Road and Bowlers Way, were closed several years ago, but were being used by traders at the nearby flea market to store their goods and as a shelter by homeless people, spokesperson for the Sea Point City Improvement District, Heather Tager, says. It appears the traders and homeless people had keys for the locks on the building, and this illegal usage left the building in a shock-

ing condition. “It’s absolutely disgusting inside. The toilets are unusable,” Tager says. The ablution facilities had become a “haven for the homeless”, confirms ward councillor Beverley Schafer, and the City of Cape Town has now boarded them shut to prevent unauthorised entry. She says this is a temporary measure until the City develops the empty land next to the toilets and bridge club. “The plan is to develop the area into two smaller football fields, demolish the toilets and rebuild them into changing rooms,” Schafer says. The development should take place during the next financial year.

The temporary closure of the toilets has had little effect, Shirley Phillips of the Western Province Bridge Union says. “The homeless people hang around the toilets outside the entrance to the building,” she says. There have been incidents of theft, and the club now keeps the doors locked at all times, Phillips continues. “It’s not pleasant, but many of our members are from an older age group and we want them to feel safe,” she says. Tager confirms that there have also been cases of harassment by the homeless people on the site, and says it is too soon to tell if boarding up the building will be effective. The club is waiting for the City to develop

the site before putting up any security measures. “The situation is that we are still waiting for the granting of the lease process to be finalised as well as the City erecting fencing around the two fields to be developed for junior soccer,” Phillips says. “The bridge union plans to add to the fencing so as to completely fence in the bridge building to control access to it. The City has also stated that they are going to erect fencing around those toilet buildings.” For Phillips, the solution is to erect a fence. “I would love the homeless to have homes. They’re just going to move onto the next neighbourhood. We need to solve the problem, not demolish the building,” she says.

ATLANTIC SEABOARD: EFFECTS OF BEACHSIDE BUILDINGS

High cost cost of coast coast dev devel elopment opment NICOLE MCCAIN

Everyone might want a house by the sea, but building along our coast line is coming at a cost higher than the developments being raised. A recent report by the South African National Biodiversity Institute, titled Life: State of South Africa’s Biodiversity Report, found that a fifth of the South African coast is under development within 100m of the shoreline. And Cape Town is not far off this mark, according to Cheryl Walters, council’s director of Planning and Building Development Management. “Cape Town is an urban environment with a population of close to 4 million people. The City hasn’t calculated exact figures, but as an urban city one would expect density of development and as such Cape Town is likely to be close to this figure,” she says. Areas such as Clifton and Bakoven on the Atlantic Seaboard, as well as parts of the Helderberg, have the highest number of developments within 100m of the shoreline due to the nature of the developments which are often apartments of high density, Walters estimates. Developments this close to shore has devastating effects on the ecosystem.

Construction will soon begin to permanently make Queens Road into a one-way road as the City of Cape Town concludes a pilot project. It was decided to make the road a oneway in a southerly direction, between Rochester Road and Kloof Road, based on the results of a transportation study which included the trial conversion of Queens Road

“Without the buffering effects of dunes, mangroves and marshes, people and property close to the coast are directly at risk. The more coastal ecosystems are built up and paved over, the less they are able to help us cope with the sometimes unpredictable nature of the sea, like strong storms which can damage coastal property,” the report states. Walters says Cape Town is vulnerable to large coastal storms and when they happen there is always some damage to both public and private property. She insists the impact of these developments is difficult to measure, due to the dynamic coastline. “Some areas, where there are rocky shores which are relatively protected from swells and storms, are able to accommodate development with little risk while other areas exposed to sandy beaches, winter storms and shifting dune systems are not well suited to development,” Walters says. However, Cape Town also retains a large portion of its coastline as natural coastline, Walters says, with around 65km of the 307km coastline falling into the Table Mountain National Park with no development on the coastal edge. In addition, the City has a number of regulations governing developments on the coastline, such as the National

BUFFER: Shorelines act as a natural buffer during storms, leaving buildings within 100m of the sea in danger of damage. PHOTO: PHOTO24 Environmental Management Act and the Integrated Coastal Management Act. These developments also come at a social cost, says Janey Ball, the project manager for Seafront For All (Seafa). Seafa advocates for open space along the shoreline to remain public space, such as on

Queens Road to remain one­way in January this year. This trial phase was conducted in preparation for the planned launch of a MyCiTi bus route from Queens Beach to the city centre, which will run along Kloof Road, right into Avenue Disandt and along High

Level Road. After a number of accidents took place on the road, residents had been lobbying for the conversion for several years, says Gary Miller, the chairperson of the Sea Point, Fresnaye and Bantry Bay Ratepay-

ers Association, and the conversion was “always what residents wanted”. The construction work will include the upgrade of the Queens Road and Kloof Road intersection and the Kings Road and Regent Road intersection; as well as the construction of a MyCiTi bus shelter opposite the entrance to the Brevity Lane culde-sac.

Upgrade planned

Commuters will have to be patient as the upgrade of the Civic Centre MyCiTi bus station begins. During the construction period, commuters will need to use alternative routes. The upgrade will include a new canopy roof installed at the main entrance to the station. The installation will take three to four months to complete. During this period, commuters will need to access the station by walking up the flight of stairs on either side of the station – either on the Artscape Theatre side or the Civic Centre side – and by taking the stairs from the station deck at Albert Luthuli Place down into the MyCiTi Civic Centre station. The drop-and-go area directly outside the station will be used for construction vehicles, but passengers can still make use of the other drop-and-go areas on Hertzog Boulevard outside the Artscape and the Civic Centre. Special level access will be provided for wheelchairusers via the fire escape alongside the station kiosk.

BO-KAAP: OBJECTIONS TO REZONING APPLICATION

Battle brews to block apartments

NICOLE MCCAIN

A proposed block of flats has BoKaap residents up in arms about the site’s future. The proposed rezoning of 9 August Street has resulted in a range of objections during the public participation process which is currently underway. If the rezoning is approved, the property will accommodate the development. Osman Shaboodien, the chairperson of the Bo-Kaap Residents’ Association, says the biggest gripe surrounds the increased traffic the proposed development will bring. “Although parking will be provided in the building, the overflow will impact on an already overcrowded Yusuf Drive where residents have no garages,” Shaboodien says. Yusuf Larney, the owner of the Bo-Kaap Kombuis next to 9 August Street, says his restaurant will not be affected by the development. “We don’t really find parking to be a problem. The neighbours leave parking for our customers, and, in turn, we make sure the customers don’t park in front of their driveways.” However, Larney says he supports the community’s stance. “I believe in development, but we are a community-based restaurant and accept the majority’s feelings.” Yusuf Drive resident Galiema Isaacs is one of those who feel strongly about the proposed development. “We don’t even have enough

parking for the people already living here, so there won’t be enough for a block of flats. We don’t know

how the building will look or who will live there. “I would have preferred if a sin-

gle or double-storey house was built on the site,” Isaacs says. Locals are concerned that the re-

zoning will set a precedent which will see apartment blocks marring the traditional appearance of the community, Shaboodien says. He is also concerned that the architecture will not be in line with the character of the current BoKaap. However, the City of Cape Town says the development is not a threat. “The applicant provided a design framework to indicate that the building’s design meets the architectural character of the area,” says Cheryl Walters, the director of the Department of Planning and Building Development Management. Residents also feel the plot is too small for this type of development, Shaboodien says. “The proposed building, which will be four levels from Yusuf Drive and six levels from Tanabaru Street, will impact on the visual aspect in that area. The plot, at 783m², is too small to hold such a bulk for building the proposed development.” However, Walters says there is no minimum requirement for the erf size in comparison to the number of floors of the building. The City is still in the process of assessing the impact the proposed development will have on the area’s infrastructure. “The City of Cape Town’s Planning and Building Development Management Department is currently awaiting responses from the various service departments as part of the application circulation process,” Walters adds.

PEOPLE'S POST | ATLANTIC SEABOARD | CITY EDITION Tuesday, 18 June 2013

NICOLE MCCAIN In an attempt to reduce noise around the Cape Town Stadium and Green Point Common, the Green Point Ratepayers’ and Residents’ Association has devised a set of guidelines to help reduce noise during events held on the Common. While the association’s Jacques Weber says the guidelines show event organisers what residents will accept on the Common, there is still little recourse for residents if the event gets out of hand on the day. The guidelines were put together as a way to consistently deal with applications for events, Weber says. “We have over 110 applications a year. That’s between four and five hours a day for the volunteers to go through. If we have the guidelines, we can immediately spot which events could be problematic.” Weber says he has dealt with over 40 complaints personally, which is in addition to the complaints submitted to the association. “After studying various events, we found the noise in the stadium is better controlled, but the price of having events in the stadium has pushed many to the Common, where noise is more difficult to control.” Weber says the aim is not to eliminate noise or refuse events in the area, but rather to put restrictions on the times during which noise is allowed and how loud it is. “We have to allow noise on certain days, but we’ve tried to limit the times.” The guidelines allow noise from 08:00 to 22:00 during weekdays, from 08:00 to 00:00 on Fridays, and from 09:00 to 00:00 on Saturdays and Sundays. Speakers will have to face away from Signal Hill and flats surrounding the Common, with the sound not exceeding 80db at five metres from the speakers.

Green Point residents seem to be on board with the guidelines, saying there is a need to curb noise in the area. “I think guidelines like these would help to make sure residents are not disturbed by events. The times will also be a big help. The loud speakers can be very noisy,” resident Edward Meyer says. Another Green Point local in favour of the guidelines is Michael Lakaso. “I don’t think we should have events during the week or on a Sunday. They should be restricted to Friday or Saturday. We also need better enforcement of not only noise violations but also crime that is attracted to the crowd.” The association is also trying to put together a database of contact details for all event organisers. However, if an event deviates from the guidelines, there is little residents can do to quieten down the revellers. “We would try to contact the event organiser or the official from the City to have the noise reduced,” Weber says. He suggests a bylaw that allows the organisers to be fined, or for the association to be able to refuse to host events with the offending organiser in future. It will be very difficult to incorporate any enforcement measures into a bylaw, ward councillor Beverly Schafer says, as it would affect several City policies. “We’re very restricted by the Municipal Act.” However, she suggests looking at the issuing of noise exemption certificates to make it easier to police noise pollution. Weber says the City has been supportive of the guidelines. “We have met with the council and expect feedback within two or three weeks. It will not necessarily be made a bylaw and will probably be used more as guidelines for event organisers.”

CITY APPEALS TO RESIDENTS TO REPORT ILLEGAL SALE OF STOLEN COUNCIL REFUSE BAGS In an effort to combat the theft and resale of City-owned refuse bags, the City’s Solid Waste Management Department will be printing the letters CCT SWM followed by a serial number in black text on all its blue bags as of June 2013. This will ensure that all stolen bags can be recognised and their source be traced. The City is appealing to residents to please not purchase blue refuse bags bearing this text being sold on street corners as these are stolen property. The printed bags will be used for all of the Solid Waste Management Department’s Cleansing Branch activities and programmes. Report any individual seen selling the printed bags on the streets, at traffic lights, or anywhere else, by contacting the City’s Solid Waste Management branch for Loss Control on 021 900 1689 or e-mail Riaan.truter@capetown.gov.za. If any unprinted blue bags are placed out on the roadside they will be deemed to be illegal dumping and dealt with accordingly. Your cooperation and assistance in this matter is highly appreciated. This action is in line with maintaining a well-run city.

TOURISM: BIG PLANS FOR THE MOTHER CITY

Dream now a reality

NICOLE MCCAIN

“Are we in the industry of making dreams come true? I would say yes. After all, one of mine came true.” Enver Duminy has dreamt of being a CEO since he was asked in 2000 where he saw himself in 10 years. In 2006, he set his mind to achieving the dream and as a result he will take over the role at Cape Town Tourism in August. A self-proclaimed “son of Cape Town”, Duminy grew up in humble circumstances in his childhood home in Mitchell’s Plain. “I used to push trolleys to earn a little bit of extra money,” Duminy says. He’s had a variety of jobs after studying science and maths at the University of the Western Cape, which saw him working at Koeberg nuclear power plant, IBM and Nedbank among others. But it wasn’t all sunny days for Duminy, who was even unemployed for a time. Looking back, this was one of the best things for him, he says. “Losing my job was a big shift for me. I realised I’m not owed anything.” This made him determined to achieve his goal, and he began studying communications, management and business courses part time. “You have to apply yourself,” Duminy advises. “It’s important not to be arrogant and think you know everything.” He takes this philosophy with him to work every day. “I don’t have all the answers, but I can stick to the plan and tap into the knowledge of my colleagues who do have the answers.” Duminy says he was bitten by the tourism bug during the Confederations Cup held in South Africa in 2009. “I was tired of working in financial services. During the Confed Cup we followed the South African team around. All that energy and excitement just sparked something in me. When I got offered a position in the industry shortly afterwards, I didn’t think twice.” Duminy’s face still lights up when he talks about promoting the city he loves

DREAM MAKER: Enver Duminy, the new CEO of Cape Town Tourism. PHOTO: SUPPLIED and his goals for Cape Town Tourism. His plans centre around creating partnerships with businesses and communities. “It’s easy to enter the industry. There are tourism courses, and we have teams that work with small businesses free of charge,” he says. Communities also need to come forward with their attractions so that Cape Town Tourism can promote them. “We need to be aware of what is available. We can place that on the website or can send teams out to the areas and generate content for the website, but we need people to bring us their stories.” An aspect of these partnerships that Duminy particularly enjoys is giving back to communities, like Mitchell’s Plain. He says he was taught a lot about giving back by his wife Karen, who worked as an occupational therapist in Mitchell’s Plain before their two-yearold daughter was born. “We never worried about who could pay for her services or not,” he says. He has retained this attitude. “The appointment doesn’t change who I am. And now I can use my position to give back.”

The People’s Team brace for play-offs LIAM MOSES

E

ngen Santos FC will face two season-defining moments this week when they take on Mpumalanga Black Aces and Chippa United in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) promotion/relegation play-offs. The People’s Team did well to fight their way back into contention for promotion after a disastrous start in the National First Division (NFD). But their hard work could all be in vain if they fail to beat Aces and Chippa in the two home games on Thursday 20 and Sunday 23 June. Head coach Ian Palmer admits both matches will be crucial, but says a loss will not be the death of his side’s promotion hopes. “I don’t think this game is do or die, because we still have to play Chippa soon after that. If we lose it won’t be good and it will be huge setback,” he says. “But we are thinking about that. We are going full-out to get one over Aces and put us in the driving seat.

New pro basketball league for SA C

ape Town could have as many as three franchises in a new, nationwide professional basketball league being formed by Basketball South Africa. The Basketball National League (BNL) is set to tip-off in September, with 12 teams across the country playing in two different conferences. Four teams have already been confirmed for the league, with Johannesburg’s Egoli Magic, the Soweto Panthers and Pretoria’s Tshwane Suns set to form part of the Northern Conference and Durban’s KwaZulu-Natal Marlins set to form part of the Southern Conference. Caby Cabanelas, director of the BNL, said three Cape Town teams have already bid for franchises. “There are certain criteria they need to meet and they will need to present their necessary capabilities to BNL. As it’s a franchise basis there will be price of R2 000 000,” he said. “The franchise gives them the right to become a shareholder in the company, the right to appoint a director to the board and the right to participate in the league.” Cabanelas says BNL aims to have at least one team from each province in the league. The tournament will see each franchise play home and away round-robin games, before the top two teams in each conference will battle it out in five games to determine a conference winner. The conference winners will then face off in five more games and the team with the most victories will be crowned BNL champions. Cabanelas could not could not elaborate on potential teams from Cape Town. Joseph Mangadi, chairperson of the Western Province Basketball Association, welcomed the formation of the league and said

it will be a massive advantage to the Association’s attempts to grow the sport. “We are extremely excited because we are trying to get more participants. It’s difficult to convince people to play a sport if there is no professional league,” he said. “It’s also easier to get more media coverage and sponsors if there is a professional league. It will help us professionalise the sport. “We have been running on a volunteer basis for a long time. Having a professional league will force us to professionalise at the lowest level.”

Basketball is still seen as a fringe sport in SA and, like most other sports, has to play second fiddle to football, rugby and cricket. Cabanelas said the BNL is ready to fight it out with the top three for a slice of the sponsorship, broadcast and match attendance pie. “The global appeal of basketball and its

links to family entertainment, music and fashion are about to take SA by storm,” he said. “We have a detailed plan on how we are going to grow the sponsorship base.” Cabanelas added that merchandising deals will also play a large part in making the sport profitable and sustainable in SA.
