TRANSPORT: MYCITI WILL BRING RELIEF
Plan to ease traffic flow ASTRID FEBRUARIE @FebAstrid
he City of Cape Town’s plan to develop an integrated rapid transport system (IRT) in Imam Haron Road in Claremont could be the solution to the traffic problem. Chairperson of the Greater Lynfrae Civic Association Alan Jackson says they were told the old Lansdowne route will be a part of the IRT system and the development of would commence later this year. “We have not been presented with any plans as yet, but understand initial plans will be put to community groups concerned and businesses along Imam Haron Road within the next two months or so,” he says. Mayoral Committee member for Transport Brett Herron confirms one of the IRT phase 2A trunk routes is planned to operate along Imam Haron Road and between Chichester and Stanhope roads. “The trunk busway infrastructure includes dedicated bus lanes and open bus stops, protected right turns for general traffic and non-motorised transport where feasible,” he says. Herron adds phase two will link the metro south and eastern suburbs with significant nodes in the southern suburbs, one of them being Claremont. “The plans are currently at a conceptual design stage, but plans are to be made in the final quarter of the year, which includes the detail design, land acquisition and public participation,” he says. Jackson says the City’s Spatial Development Plan makes provision for activity routes, which includes Imam Haron Road. “The idea of the activity routes is that they will be transport, business and residential routes, and will be focal points for development. The IRT is a central part of the activity route and the availability of effective, efficient and reasonably priced MyCiTi buses will drive the demand for residential units and business on the route,” he says. Jackson adds they were informed structural plans to widen the road are in place, but this will only be certain once they see

PHOTO: ASTRID FEBRUARIE the plans. “We are not privy to anything to which the public as a whole are not privy. The process of community consultation will offer everyone an opportunity to ask questions and express concerns, but most importantly, influence the plans,” he says. The association hopes the IRT development will ensure smoother movement of traffic on Imam Haron Road. But this sentiment is not welcomed by all. In particular Liz Williamson, chairperson of the Claremont Cluster Community Policing Forum, says she doubts the IRT system will address the traffic issue unless a solution on how to curb taxis is found. “The taxi drivers do not look where they are driving and their ultimate aim is to get
to their destination as quickly and fully laden as possible,” she says. Williamson was horrified when she saw how taxi drivers speed past Livingstone High School when pupils are crossing the road. “They have no concern for pedestrians who make use of the road and could easily knock a child,” she says. She says children are often obscured behind vehicles and cross the road when they think it is safe, while the taxis keep coming without any consideration for the them. Claire Brown, who works in Imam Haron Road, says she would be happy to see the IRT system developed in the road. “It would make my life so much easier. I often use a taxi or walk to work from Main Road, but
with the IRT system I will feel much safer knowing I can get off the bus closer to work,” she says. It would be especially helpful in winter, Brown says, when she is forced to walk in the dark. “One is never safe. I would be grateful if the IRT system is developed here. There are many people who use the road and it will reduce the traffic congestion, which is a headache for everyone,” she says.

CELEBRATION: The second sunrise har vest celebration, hosted by the Vineyard Hotel and Spa in Newlands, saw just over 220kg of grapes plucked from the hotel’s own riverbank vineyards. Here Kitty Pet ousis, owner of the hotel, proudly har vests in the hotel’s private vineyard. The harvest will go towards producing a limit ed run of the hotel’s own vintage label later this year. This special harvest is only the second of its kind to take place in the Newlands area in the past 150 years.

PINELANDS: CONCERNS OVER OPERATION AT HOME
Child safety alert ASTRID FEBRUARIE @FebAstrid
children’s home in Pinelands has raised the eyebrows of some residents who claim it is operating illegally. But ward councillor Brian Watkyns says as the property is zoned single residential. the definition of a family includes not more than five unrelated person without dependants maintaining a common household. It does not exclude up to six foster children or dependants under legal guardianship as part of a household. “The home, by right, may have up to six foster children or dependants under legal guardianship,” he says. A resident, who does not want to be named, says she often sees the children of Linawo Children’s Home in Rhone Street running around and playing in the streets without adult supervision. “They ride their bicycles without helmets and I have not seen an adult looking after them while they are playing outside. I do not know how many children live there, but it looks to as if it is too many for them to handle,” she says, Her “main concern” is the safety of the children while playing outside. “They could easily be knocked by a motorist, fall from their bicycles and hurt their heads and no one is around to monitor these activities,” she says. The home takes care of 16 children between four and 16 years. Riad Davids, Pinelands Ratepayers’ Association vice-chairperson, says they thought the orphanage had closed its doors. “We have not had any complaints from neighbours. If it is still open, we were not made aware of this by either the City of Cape Town or neighbours,” Davids says. The association only acts on complaints
or if they are requested to give input to departures on zoning or land use, he says. Resident David Carlisle says he is also concerned about the safety of the children, as they are not supervised. “Children’s safety and security is always a concern and I hope, for the sake of the children, the home is operating legally. I have seen some of the younger children playing alone outside without adult supervision,” he says. “I hope this does not happen regularly; if anything happens it could mean they have to close because of negligence. Where will the children go then?” But caregiver Ivy Konisi says the staffers of the home care for the vulnerable and orphaned children within a strong family structure. “We believe in the value and importance of family for children and want to ensure that we provide this where we can,” she says. The home moved to Pinelands in 2012. The property is situated near a primary school and within walking distance from a high school, a Scout troop and other amenities. “Our house has a fantastic garden in which the children play and we now have

a vegetable garden, which the children love tending and eating from,” Konisi says. She says they operate with “strong family principles” and, like most families, aim to provide each child with a tertiary education so that they may become independent adults who can take care of FAMILY VALUES: Some Pinelands residents have expressed concerns over themselves and make the safety of children at Linawo Children’s Home, but a caregiver says the a contribution to the home offers a family environment.

Being on guard will help ward off crime ASTRID FEBRUARIE @FebAstrid
rime is a reality and residents need to take more responsibility for their personal safety. This is the message the Rondebosch Community Improvement District (RCID) wants to bring across to the community. RCID manager Shirley Aldum says the organisation encourages residents to be vigilant at all times and to report suspicious behaviour to the police and their security providers, as well as to the RCID. “We urge residents to continue with implementing security measures as this not only keeps them safe, but adds to the safety of
the rest of the community,” she says. When comparing the crime statistics of the last three years, there was a spike in house break-ins during December last year, while January saw a slight decrease with only two reported incidents. Last month there was a further decrease with only one reported incident, Aldum says. “There are many criminals who are professional, well-dressed and well-spoken, and blend into the neighbourhood driving luxury cars to not draw attention to themselves. They know what they want and are skilled in what they do,” she says. In some cases, Aldum adds, residents create the opportunity for a house break-in by

leaving windows open for pets, leaving garage doors and gates unlocked and leaving valuable items, such as bicycles, lying around the property. This attracts criminals. “We ask that residents test their alarm systems at least twice a month to ensure their system is functioning properly. This will also ensure that the service provider receives a signal when the alarm is set off,” Aldum says. Rondebosch police further appeals to residents to contact them, no matter the size of the complaint. The RCID is committed to stamping out crime in the community and encourages each resident to make every effort to be the
“eyes and ears” of the police. “Residents must remain vigilant and enforce security measures at home. We cannot expect the police to keep our community safe. The police, together with the various security providers, need to be thanked for the superb efforts they are making in the area,” Aldum says. The RCID is in the process of installing further licence plate recognition cameras and four overview cameras. The installation could take place within the next two weeks. “The cameras we have, has helped to pick up on suspicious behaviour,” she says. “Recently there were two incidents where successful arrests were using footage from the camera system.”

Development gets the green light ASTRID FEBRUARIE @FebAstrid
onstruction of a development underway in Claremont has residents and the local civic association questioning how this is possible when the proposal for development was hotly contested. Residents of Belvedere Road in Claremont were surprised to see the demolition of three houses between Choo Choo Park and Wyndover Road on Wednesday on 5 February. The application for the development was made by Tommy Brummer Town and Regional Planners on behalf of the owners (“New life to Claremont”, People’s Post, 20 February). The development will see the construction of apartments. Howard Markham, manager of the property company overseeing the project, previously said the apartments will be in a secure, access-controlled perimeter. But Kathy Dumbrell, chairperson of the Belvedere Civic Association, says the development was proposed in 2005 and was contested by residents of Wyndover and Alpha roads. “Many rounds of negotiation and objection followed with the group of objectors growing to include residents of other parts of the area,” she says.
The core issues were the number of units and offices included in the proposal, while the entrance and exit was also challenged as Wyndover Road is narrow and a one-way from Belvedere Road. “After years of silence we see construction (starting) – demolition started and work continued late into the night. All of this is of great concern. I imagine those who objected to the development in 2008 and earlier are disappointed,” Dumbrell says. Cheryl Walters, director for the City’s Planning and Building Development Management Department, says building plans were approved on Monday 3 February. “The plans approved are for a three-storey block of flats comprising 16 dwelling units,” she says. She says the rezoning was approved by council’s Spatial Planning, Environment and Land Use Management Committee in 2008. “The relevant title deed conditions were removed by provincial government in 2010. An appeal by an objector was declared invalid and the final notification letter was issued in May 2011,” Walters says. When the land use application was advertised in 2006, 20 objections and a petition with 39 signatures were submitted. The issues raised included parking, traffic, impact on property values and densification.
PLANNING AND BUILDING DEVELOPMENT MANAGEMENT Development Application Management System (DAMS) The City of Cape Town will be implementing the new Development Application Management System (DAMS) from 1 April 2014. In order to migrate the existing data to the new system, a dead period starting from the close of business on 14 March 2014 and ending on 31 March 2014 will be necessary. During this period no new development application submissions or payment transactions will be possible. The business process for all active applications submitted before 14 March 2014 will continue as normal. The following services will still be rendered at the counters: • • • • • •
Pre-consultation meetings Enquiries about the status of applications already in the system General planning and building information and queries Collecting of approved/refused/amended/withdrawn plans Zoning queries Inspection notices

One of Cape Town’s oldest cricket clubs can now list a world champion among its membership, after the junior Proteas’ victory in the ICC under-19 World Cup. All-rounder Jason Smith has been a member of the club since 2012, and played an integral part in SA’s victory in Dubai. Smith, who grew up a stone-throw away from the club in Elfindale, labels the tournament victory as his “greatest achievement” to date. “The feeling was unreal. It felt amazing, because we were the first SA side to win an International Cricket Council (ICC) tournament,” he says. “I still can’t describe the way we felt. When they hit the winning runs, we all just stormed onto the field – we were all standing outside the change room and just stormed on.” The baby Proteas beat Pakistan by seven wickets in the final of the tournament on Saturday 1 March. The victory earned South Africa its inaugural ICC title at any level. Though Smith is the first world champion at St Augustine’s, the club can also lay claim to two of SA’s most famous cricketers. Former Proteas spinner and current Cape Cobras coach Paul Adams is a product of St Augustine’s, while Basil D’Oliveira who represented England during apartheid was also a club member. Chairperson Johnny Jacobs believes Smith can go on to emulate Adams and D’Oliveira. “A lot of development still needs to happen for him to mature into the cricketer he could be,” says Jacobs. “He has all the talent in the world and I have no doubt he will go far in cricket. It’s just about taking the opportunities at the right time.” Smith is determined to make a career of the sport, and spent three months playing in Devonshire, England before he was selected
for the SA under-19 side in January. The 19-year-old may return to England at the end of the local cricket season. “The conditions were very different to South Africa – some weeks we played on wet pitches and the decks were a lot slower,” he says. “You have to adapt when you bat; playing in England has assisted me with that.” Smith scored seven centuries and seven half-centuries during his time in England. At present the youngster is completely focused on helping St Augustine’s win the Western Province Cricket Association 1B League. The club’s first team is currently unbeaten and at the summit of the table. “Our sponsor, Jive, has a lot to do with our upward movement; they have sponsored us for three (seasons),” Jacobs says. “Jason has played a huge role in (the club’s progress) and he has played most of the games.”

Youth footie on show in Strandfontein Cape Town’s top under-13 footballers will show off their skills at the Strandfontein AFC under-13 tournament next week. The annual tournament attracts some of the peninsula’s best sides and this year is no different. Teams from as far as Stellenbosch are set to mix it up with the best local amateur sides and well-drilled juniors from the Cape’s professional outfits. The tournament format will see the top two teams from each of the eight groups advance to the winners section to contest the title, while the third-placed teams fight it out in the plate section and the fourth-placed sides battle for the shield section trophy. Group A will see Sunningdale FC, Golden
United and Leeds Lentegeur take on the might of Ajax Cape Town. With their famed development structures and abundant resources, Ajax will be favourites to win the group and the entire tournament. Group B features Rockafellas, Beacon Spurs, Ashley Rovers and Chippa United. Chippa should be favourites to win the group, but the other sides will view the National First Division (NFD) log leaders as a major scalp. Metropolitan Premier Cup hosts Bayhill United are the biggest names in Group C, with Bayview, Liverpool and Westridge also challenging for the top two spots. Pinelands based Old Mutual Academy are
perennial contenders for any junior title and look likely to top Group D. Beacon Pirates, Clarewood and Standards will likely fight it out for second place in the group. Tournament hosts Strandfontein AFC have been pooled with Rondebosch’s Rygersdal, Colville and Stephanians Ottery in Group E. Home field advantage should see the hosts through to the winners’ section, with Rygersdal providing a stiff challenge for the top spot. Milano United will be keen to emulate the success of their senior team in Group F, but Safa Second Division side Salt River Blackpool could stand in their way. Masakhane and Green Point Salesians
will look to cause upsets against their more well known opponents in the group. Group G looks the most open, with Morgenster United, Woodlands United, Ida’s Valley and Young Wizards grouped together Woodlands and Morgenster are the best bets for the top two spots, based on previous performances. Fish Hoek AFC are firm favourites to take the top spot in Group H. The Far South side’s organised youth structures should see them qualify ahead of Fulham, Southhampton and Holy Cross. The tournament will take place at the Strandfontein Sports Complex from Friday 21 to Sunday 23 March. The first match will kick off at 09:30 on Friday, while the final will be played at 15:30 on Sunday.

Province ready for final LIAM MOSES @LiamCPT
estern Province are feeling no extra pressure ahead of the Cricket South Africa’s women’s 50-over provincial final on Saturday. Province will claim their second consecutive title if they defeat KwaZulu-Natal in Durban, but coach Cobus Roodt says this doesn’t have an impact on how they will approach the match. “We will just take it as another game. There is tremendous mental strength in the team, in each player,” Roodt says. “Cricket is 80% mental – that’s what I have
been drilling into the team over the last two seasons. We are normally good in knockout situations.” Last season Roodt’s side beat Gauteng at the Wanderers to secure the title, after knocking out Northerns at Newlands the previous week. They tread a similar path this season, again knocking out Northerns in a home semi-final on Saturday 8 March. Province posted 147, with Leighshe Jacobs (33) and Yolani Fourie (28) making the only notable scores. The bowling attack took up the challenge and skittled Northerns for 74 runs. Moseline Daniels was the stand-out per-
former, taking 4/9, with Shabnim Ismail snatching 3/27. “The pitch was a bit sticky when we batted in the morning and we battled to get going. At least we managed one good partnership,” says Roodt. “The team showed lots of character when we went back out to defend that small total. When we examined the pitch, we expected a total of around 180, so getting close to it was good. We backed it up with the fielding and bowling. The (fight the players put up) bodes well for the future and the next match.” Roodt will have eight of last year’s title winning squad available selection for the fi-
nal, but will lose Daniels, Ismail and Shandre Fritz to the national squad. He expects the team to still have enough experience and firepower to pull off a victory. “Bowling will be difficult with the national players absent, but we have good personnel taking over from them,” he says. “KZN are also losing three players – the three (batsmen) who stood out for them against Gauteng in their semi-final. I’m very confident we can do well this coming weekend. “We know it’s the home straight and the team with the most stamina will pull through.”
Ikeys clinch victory over Shimlas FNB UCT all but booked their place in the Varsity Cup play-offs with a clinical victory over FNB UFS-Shimlas at the Green Mile on Monday. The victory, the fourth in six games and the first at home this season, saw the Ikey Tigers move to 19 points and second place on the table. UCT played into the notorious wind in the first half, but it did not stop them from racking up a 18-0 half-time lead. They surged to an early lead with 10 points in the first 10 minutes. Winger Richard Stewart drew first blood, scoring with a typically classy finish in the fifth minute of play. But the strong wind prevented flyhalf Dean Grant from adding the extras. Industrious flank Jason Klaasen doubled the scores five minutes later, forcing his way over from close range, but Grant again failed with his conversion attempt. Powerful lock Shaun McDonald crashed over shortly before the 20-minute mark and Grant sent UCT in the strategy break with an 18-0 lead, after goaling his third conversion attempt. The visitors started to string a few phases together when the first-half resumed but
were unable to really threaten the UCT tryline and the scoreline went unchanged. Shimlas started the second-half the stronger of the two teams, taking a leaf out of UCT’s book from the first-half. However, just as they looked close to finding a breakthrough, the ball was turned over and they were punished in a vintage Ikeys counter-attack. The ball was swung wide to Lihleli Xoli and the left wing played in fullback Ross Jones-Davies, who slid in for the crucial fourth try and a bonus point. Grant missed the tricky conversion from the left-hand side, but it seemed unlikely to affect the match. He later added a penalty as the match moved towards the 70th minute, with Ikeys leading 25-0. Shimlas managed a late consolation try through hooker Jacques du Toit and the match ended with scores at 25-5. The five points has put UCT in touching distance of their first semi-final since 2011 – the only year they have lifted the trophy. They next face Wits in Johannesburg, for their final league match of the season, on Monday at 19:00. Thus far, Wits have lost all their matches, so UCT will be expected to pick up another five-point victory.
