Call to demolish station TERESA FISCHER

CARNIVAL COSTUMES: The Cape Town Carnival is back and it is said to be more vibrant and col­ ourful than ever. This year marks the fourth year running. The extrav­ aganza will be held on Saturday 16 March and, as usual, will take place through the streets of Cape Town. The theme for this year is African Legends, in celebration of our country’s rich cul­ tural heritage, including the legends of the Cape, South Africa and Africa. Festivities start at 17:00 on Saturday 16 March and the parade will get underway at 19:00. The parade will be held along the Fanwalk in Green Point. In full regalia, from left, are Dale le Roux, La­ na Fortune, Crystal Simpson, Lynn Fortune, Ronell Overmeyer and Kylie Eriksen.

A CALL has been made to demolish the disused railway station at Clovelly. This comes amid fears it is being used to harbour criminals. A large hole is visible on the Kalk Kay side of the platform, which leads underneath the neglected platform – which is believed to be home to several vagrants. A couple walking home from Kalk Bay to Fish Hoek one evening recently says they were victims of an attempted mugging. The couple, who ask not to be named, says two men approached them at the Clovelly/ Fish Hoek traffic intersection on the Main Road, but they managed to ward them off. They say the men then fled down the Fish Hoek side of the Silvermine Bridge, toward the beach. After reporting the incident to the police and giving them a description of the assailants, officers headed to the bridge to see if they could confront the muggers. The husband says: “These two men seemed to appear from nowhere. We think they were hiding out at Clovelly station. With the deterioration of Clovelly station, an increased criminal element is becoming more and more apparent.” The station has not been in use since about November 2000, says Riana Scott, Metrorail spokesperson. The husband asks that Metrorail “either please knock down the station as it is a health risk” or “brick up the platforms and old structures which are housing desperate people”. He adds: “The Fish Hoek Improvement District needs to put pressure on the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) and get Clovelly station sorted before someone gets seriously injured.” Fish Hoek City Improvement District Manager Hennie van der Merwe says this is an ongoing issue, which is a “nightmare” for the Fish Hoek Community Police Forum (CPF). “People make use of it as a living area from time to time,” he says, adding he has spoken to Metrorail about this. “It is a good hiding place,” says Van der Merwe, adding people return even after being removed.

Damon Garty, co-owner of a private security firm, says it is possible the site is harbouring a criminal element. Last year an armed response officer of the security firm caught a man, who allegedly raped and held a woman against her will, in the space under the platform. (“No-nonsense guard catches alleged rapist”, People’s Post, 20 March). The officer said at the time the entire length of the platform was hollow underneath, and there was evidence of criminal activity. Garty says property had been found in the vicinity, but points out it is difficult to say whether it was stolen property or items taken from dustbins.

He adds: “Ideally Metrorail should close it up. As the gap between the ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’ increases, people get more desperate and take more chances.” Ward councillor David D’Alton has put forward a possible solution, but approval from Metrorail is pending. He says the possibility of the station being demolished, and the rubble being used by the construction company undertaking the Main Road regeneration project, has been mooted by the company. D’Alton explains the rubble could be used as infill and support, where the bridge overhang is situated. He says this proposal is still awaiting a de-

cision by Metrorail. Fish Hoek police spokesperson Warrant Officer Peter Middleton says it is “extremely difficult” to say whether the site harbours criminals. He adds only the destitute would shelter there. Middleton says: “Sometimes when you are desperate you do what is needed to survive; the difference between wrong and right becomes blurred. Desperation mostly leads to some form of wrongdoing.” Ewert Hans, Corridor Manager for Prasa Corporate Real Estate Solutions (Prasa Cres), says: “I will take it to a higher level to make a decision.”

Petrol increased by 41c a litre on Wednesday. A litre of petrol now costs R11.92 in coastal areas and R12.27 in inland regions. While fuel increases affect the profits of the taxi industry, most associations only up their fares once a year, explains Vusumzi Miselo, the regional chairman of Congress for Democratic Taxi Associations. “We meet with other taxi associations between October and November where we discuss price increases. Our fares always increase between R1 and R2 and these increases usually take effect in December,” he says. “We will be losing a lot of profit by not increasing our prices, but we know the petrol price will go down soon. If we increase fares now, our customers will expect us to decrease it when the petrol goes down. For this reason we only have a price increase once a year.” After price increases, more travellers make their way to train stations, Metrorail regional manager Mthuthuzeli Swartz says. “The region’s overall ticket sales have increased by more than 9% [since the last petrol increase]. Monthly ticket sales have shot up by 21.4%, an indication that demand keeps growing despite our

current challenges,” he says. Metrorail has 85 trains operating on three different lines in the province. There are 33 trains operating on the Khayelitsha/Mitchell’s Plain line; 32 on the northern line to Bellville, Wellington and Strand; and 23 serves the Simon’s Town and Cape Flats line. “Some 655 daily trains operate 732 000 passenger journeys each weekday. The current economic climate has increased demand for trains to the point it exceeds available supply,” Swartz says. “Even with all train-sets repaired and in service, the Western Cape region will find it extremely hard to meet increasing demand. Attempts have been made to source train-sets from other regions and commuter trains have been replaced with long-distance carriages for outlying areas to free up additional capacity for shorter routes.” Another alternative for cashstrapped motorists is car-pooling. Findalift.co.za offers a websitebased service that allows people to find others travelling their way with little hassle. Already used by over 6 400 South Africans, the site matches people on similar routes, without displaying personal information, so they can decide to make secure contact and arrange to share the journey. Managing member Daniel Claassen says the service helps people travel better, reduces emissions and congestion and saves money.

“The effect of the latest fuel increase will ensure a motorist, making a modest commute of 25km to work and back, will pay on average R300 more for fuel annually,” he says. And while 41c might be something most won’t even bother to pick up off the floor, there is a bigger picture. “Using the latest petrol price, it will cost a commuter on average R9 000 in fuel per year and R4 000 in wear and tear, based on AA rates for the maintenance costs of a vehicle with an engine capacity of 1 501 to 1 800,” says Claasen. “Sharing this journey with one person can save R4 500 in fuel alone and R2 000 on wear and tear. What could you do with an extra R6 500 yearly?” Johnny Barret previously travelled 20 km from Athlone to Cape Town to drop his wife at work. But since the price hike, she has opted to rather travel by bus. “When I used to drive her to work I would spend at least R1 200 a month,” he says. “We are saving more than half the money now that she is using public transport.” Selvinlee Balie says commuting by taxi is the cheaper option. He takes one taxi from home to work, travelling 20km on average per day. “When I was using my car I would spend R600 on petrol a month. Now that I use public transport I spend just over R250,” he says.

Kommetjie could be on the fence TERESA FISCHER

KOMMETJIE residents are to discuss the possibility of erecting a fence across a section of its border to stop raids by baboons. This is because it is reportedly the only suburb that has experienced frequent raids over the summer. A new splinter group is said to be forming in the area, resulting in reducing the efficiency of the field rangers. Two males successfully raided at least five houses with people present, and numerous bin raids were reported. At a meeting, hosted by the Kommetjie Residents’ and Ratepayers’ Association on Wednesday, scientists and members of the City’s Baboon Management Team addressed the village. The speakers were Professor Justin O’Riain from UCT’s Baboon Research Unit, Julia Wood, of the City’s Environmental Resource Management Department, as well as Professor Phil Richardson, Human Wildlife Solutions (HWS). Wood says: “Baboon management costs the City R10.4m a year.” She adds baboons are not an endangered species, and that this cost is not sustainable in the long-term. However, the City says its new baboon management programme has seen great success over the past six months, with statistics showing the

Baboon management costs the City R 10.4m a year

compared to early 2009 when only five troops were managed. The number of Peninsula baboons has steadily increased, having recently reached the 500 mark. This represents an increase of 121 individuals over the previous seven years. Furthermore, the number of adult males has increased from about 40 to 60 males over the same time – something which was said to be the direct result of improved management by the City. All activities that previously brought people into close contact with baboons have been stopped. This includes permits for filming and baboon walking tours. The Baboon Management Team says in addition to the public meetings, they routinely consult with experts in baboon behavioural ecology and conservation.

strategies in place are working very well. As part of the contract with HWS, the City requires that troops be kept out of town for a minimum of 80% of the time. Since August, the baboons have been kept out of town for an average of over 95% of the time. Similar successes have been achieved with raiding adult males, with no reported raids in the Zwaanswyk and Tokai residential areas. According to the authorities there is always room for improvement, but testament to the success of these actions is the decline in the human-induced baboon mortality rate, which has been halved from over 10% in 2006 to five percent in 2011.

Wildlife frolics again in wetlands IT IS a win-win outcome for man and nature when a previously unemployed man was put to work to oust invasive alien vegetation at a wetland.

Otters, fish, water mongoose and abundant birdlife are said to be returning to Westlake Wetlands Conservation Area, as a result of the removal of the alien water hyacinth. This water weed, which originates from the Amazon, can double in size every 38 days, making it a threat to wetlands wildlife, as many animals are forced to flee the congested waterways.

Cellphones top the list CELLPHONES have become the most poplar item stolen by thieves.

Fish Hoek Police spokesperson Warrant Officer Peter Middleton says there “seems to be a market” for stolen cellphones. He says if anyone has information regarding whether there is a way of unlawfully unblocking phones that have been reported stolen, they should please contact the station on (021) 784 2700. “Police will readily pay for information leading to successful convictions,” he adds. In many cases, people say they put their phones down in a public place, to later discover them stolen. Other crime trends this week included a “slight increase” in house break-ins in Sector 2, that is Sun Valley and Noordhoek. The most popular item stolen is LCD televisions. Middleton says it is important to keep serial numbers of such items. He says in cases where these stolen items are recovered, it is then easier to identify the owner. Middleton notes it was otherwise a “relatively quiet” week and adds that thefts of cars have decreased drastically. .

Blaze doused from above TERESA FISCHER

A FIRE in the reeds in Sun Valley came within 10m of Masiphumelele on Tuesday afternoon. Theo Layne, spokesperson of the City’s Fire and Rescue Service, says: “The wind was fanning the fire tremendously.” Four households had to be evacuated from Lake Michelle, says Layne. He adds the blaze was moving in three different directions – towards Masiphumelele, Longbeach Mall and the houses at Lake Michelle. Two helicopters and two fixed wing bombers – which can each carry 2 000 litres of water – were used to extinguish the flames. Ten fire engines, four water tankers and five support vehicles also worked to put out the fire in an operation which lasted from 13:50 until 20:00. According to Layne paramedics treated a 92-year-old woman for smoke inhalation.

TWO LEGENDS: Lewis Pugh – also known as the human polar bear – will be giving an inspirational speech on his record­breaking swim across the North Pole to help raise funds for Godfrey Mocke’s medical bills. Godfrey Mocke (right) is pictured with his son, Dawid. Godfrey, who is well­known in Fish Hoek, has a clutch of life­saving and swimming titles to his name. He is a dedicated swimming coach to many children in the Valley. He was recently diagnosed with terminal lung and brain cancer. According to the family, in true Mocke spirit, he is putting up a great fight, but his condition is deteriorating daily. They say they have been overwhelmed by the support and love shown during this time, with many people asking how they can help. Pugh will speak at 19:30 today, Tues­ day 12 February, at Fish Hoek High School. Tickets are R100 and will be sold at the door. Photo: Supplied

Make your voice heard YOU can have a say in the City of Cape Town’s Metro Police plan for the next financial year. Metro Police is calling on residents to make their voices heard by commenting in a public participation process for its annual plan for 2013/2014. The strategic plan will direct the department’s operations, build on the successes of previous years, further improve its service and, ultimately, make Cape Town a safer place. “Public participation is vital for an effective plan, as residents often have a better understanding of what it is in their communities that needs more attention. I encourage residents to submit their input, as they will in turn benefit from improved safety,” says JP Smith, Mayoral Committee member for Safety and Security. The closing date for submissions is Thursday 28 February. The plan will focus on the three legislative mandates of traffic, bylaw enforcement and crime prevention. It will also focus on alcohol and drug-related offences, gang-related activities, contraventions of the Arms and Ammunitions Act, moving violations and bylaw offences. Residents submit comments to the department by fax on 0 0866 201 238 or email to 2 sean.petersen@capetown.gov.za. Alternatively, place your submissions in suggestion boxes at Metro Police Community Service Centres at the Old Telkom Building in Rochester Road, Philippi, or 101 Hertzog Boulevard, Cape Town. Community Police Forum chairpersons or delegates are also invited to attend a meeting to discuss the plan on Saturday 23 February. For more information on the meeting and plan call Sean Petersen on 0 (021) 370 2200 or email 2 sean.petersen@capetown.gov.za.

SNIP WITH HEART: First grader Keira Terry and her mother Dr Lynette Terry, from Fish Hoek, made good on their New Year’s reso­ lution to donate their waist­length hair to the Cancer Association of South Africa (Cansa). They felt someone going through the trauma of cancer and chemotherapy, and losing their hair, would enjoy the bene­ fits of a wig made of human hair. They were comforted by the fact their hair could be put to good use. Keira says: “I hope I can make someone happy with my hair.” If any­ one would like to donate their hair it must be more than 22cm long, healthy and un­ treated. For further information call Cansa toll­free on 0800 226 622. Photo: Supplied

Crisis point

ANENE BOOYSEN will be remembered for all the wrong reasons. Not through her fault, but for the inhumane actions of others. The Bredasdorp teenager died after she was raped and brutalised. A doctor spoke out about the horror of Anene’s last hours. President Jacob Zuma has said the harshest punishment must be meted out upon her perpetrators. The matter has received attention in the media; politicians have spoken out, for once, united in their disgust. But Anene isn’t alone. While her untimely death at the hand of others may be particularly gruesome, many other women and girls who survive never take that step to report rape or sex crimes. They’d rather not relive the violation to police officers and in court, nor by society. Rape is not about sex. It’s about power. It’s about hurting another on an extremely intimate level. Rape is akin to a sort of death. Without years of counselling, rape survivors often find it difficult to regain control of their lives. They have difficulty trusting. It is as trying for the men who love them. The gang rape on a bus and subsequent death on the roadside of an Indian student evoked global uproar. Perhaps, in South Africa, complacency is the enemy. Should women remain cooped up in their homes for fear of assault? Do they have to wear clothes deemed “appropriate” to avoid would-be attackers justifying lewdness? What society expects of a wronged party to adjust behaviour to suit the sickness that breeds in the heart of another? And where do we draw the line? Not all men do this. They are the ones who will think of Anene. She could be your mother, your wife, your sister, your daughter. She could be the granddaughter you dote on. Every woman anywhere and at any time has as much right to be safe as any man. This is not an issue of gender equality. It is a human right.

Welcome the market Road rules: reply is a ‘cop’ out WITH regards to the comment by LieutenantColonel Augus (“Road rules: where’s the line?”, People’s Post, 5 February) I find his comment absolutely pathetic. He uses his position to excuse his use of his cellphone despite it being unlawful. (As for) his comment about his disregarding the blatant transgression of the taxi and Nissan: he is obviously of the same mind as the rest of Ocean View police where they disregard and ignore transgressions by taxi drivers. I have on numerous occasions laid complaints or called them to a scene where there has been transgressions of the law and Ocean View police have either done nothing or ignored the complaint. When confronted, (they) offered the same lame excuse as the Station Commander.

If traffic has nothing to do with the police at Ocean View why do they man so many roadblocks – to catch people who don’t have their licences (or) for some minor traffic offence and ignore general crime – if not to improve their monthly stats on crimes solved to cover their ineptness in actually solving crime and responding to the needs of the community? Try calling out the Ocean View police and experience the frustration of trying to get a response. You should be ashamed to call yourself a Station Commander and you shame the police. TERRENCE VAN ZYL Glencairn Ocean View Police Station Commander Lieutenant Colonel JJ Augus declined to comment.

THE reply from the Ocean View Police Station Commander, a Lieutenant Colonel, to a letter from Axel of Fish Hoek (“Road rules: where’s the line?”) is, to put it bluntly, arrogant and unbelievable from a high-ranking officer. That there was a line of vehicles following a police vehicle at 78km/h in a restricted zone of 60km/h is a bad example of law enforcement. That two other vehicles were able to overtake at a speed of about 90km/h without any reaction from the police vehicle also requires an explanation, and to say that traffic offences are not the priority of the police is bizarre. Together with the fact (he) was on his cellphone spells out this officer is above the law.

The explanation that police get emergency calls while driving is no excuse in the eyes of the law. It takes seconds to break and pull over. By his statement that traffic offences are not his priority, he is implying that firefighters, traffic officers, roadside medics and others all have their primary responsibilities, but if they see a child being abused or a female being raped, then it is not their duty to intervene. It would be interesting to see what criteria is required to become a Lieutenant Colonel in the police. This arrogance leaves a sour taste in the mouth. RAY Marina da Gama

IN response to Lieutenant Colonel JJ Augus (“Road rules: where’s the line?”, People’s Post, 5 February). You were on your phone while those two drivers overtook you at that speed. What if one of those drivers turned a corner at high speed and crashed into another innocent driver and killed all the passengers on board? Or what if they ran someone over on the sidewalk? You are part of the police force and those drivers broke the speed limit right in front of you. It doesn’t matter how big or small the offence, it still requires your attention. People are already losing faith in the police force; this isn’t helping. Speed kills! SUZAAN BENEKE Fish Hoek

I NOTICE the policeman’s response to Axel’s letter. (“Road Rules: where’s the line?”, People’s Post, 5 February). In many countries, a policeman attending an emergency would be driving much faster than 80km/h, with blue lights and a siren (in traffic). In addition, in these same countries, police cars are equipped with radios so that the police can drive safely and still take calls, or they have a companion colleague to assist. Bluetooth hands-free devices for cars are widely available today. If I drove with one hand on the steering wheel, I would be arrested for not being in full control of my car. CLARE Fish Hoek

I HAVE been to the Thursday evening market at the vineyards and it was amazing; the stalls and the people were fantastic (“Noordhoek legal battle”, People’s Post, 5 February). Everything is so well organised. It brings the community together. I think it is fantastic of Mr (Sybrand) van der Spuy to allow the market to be on the estate. I’ve met him and he is a wonderful, delightful gentleman. We must welcome the market and its people. Its wonderful to see how all who go to the market enjoy the estate. It is a wonderful venue. FRITZ WELGEMOED Fish Hoek

Roadworks a hurdle I THINK Civils 2000 should be relieved of their contract to sort out the roadworks. I fail to see how this can take so long to complete. Oh, yes, (there was) a holiday from December to February, then also 70% of the workers sit around chatting to each other or their faces (are) in their cellphones, texting away. Supervisors walk around not supervising. Yes, it is a big job, but, really, enough is enough! If Civils 2000 can’t handle it then find a company that can. FRUSTRATED MOTORIST Fish Hoek Civils 2000 director Rob Starke responds: We are doing our best and what is best for the public. Civils 2000 agreed to, at some expense, open the road to two-way traffic from early December to Monday 4 February to satisfy the needs of the Kalk Bay shop owners who felt that this would ease their low sales recorded during the re-construction of Main Road. The time it has taken is because of the nature of the works. The process to be followed is to establish what has to be done; see if it can be done in the space available; open up and confirm existing structures like pipes and cables; design the required works, and construct the works.


Tuesday 12 February 2013

No patience AM I the only one who is experiencing poor service at Clicks Pharmacy in Longbeach (Mall)? Over the past seven months there has been a steady deterioration in the service. There seems to be a shortage of staff together with a very patronising approach. Queues are long and a half-hour wait is normal. This in an environment in which one is forced by one’s medical aid to obtain medication from a specific supplier. After much frustration I have finally resorted to complaining to my medical aid and have moved all my business to Dischem with a great improvement in service. MIKE WRIGHT Simon’s Town Clicks spokesperson Susann Caminada responds: We thank the reader for bringing this to our attention, and apologise to patrons of Clicks Pharmacy Longbeach Mall for the ongoing problem. There is a shortage of pharmacists, but this is no reason for poor service. We have elevated this issue to management with the aim of rectifying the situation as speedily as possible, and thank customers for their patience in this matter. I have been informed there is a dedicated team working on resolving the staffing issues. They are busy securing permanent staffing for the store and flexi staff in the interim, and that we hope to resolve the issue as soon as possible.

Thanks, Doc!

I JUST want to say a huge “thank you” to Dr Gavin Gurnell and his staff at Fish Hoek Vet Clinic. On Tuesday 29 January my dog, who had five puppies, fell ill early in the morning. I turned to Fish Hoek Vet Clinic on Kommetjie Road. I was greeted by a wonderful and very pleasant lady who decided to ask the vet to assist me even though I had no cash. Gavin appeared and gave me some sound advice and assistance on how to care for my dog. Not only that, they even gave some good dog food. My dogs loved it. May God richly bless you at the clinic in the kindness you have shown to me and my pets. I pray that your business prospers even beyond your expectations. Thank you and God bless. AP

Drum set a hit OCEAN View Secondary School would like to thank the gentleman who so kindly donated a drum set to our school anonymously. Our school has just recently started music classes and this donation came at the right time. Thank you yet again and may God bless you! SAGEDA DE KLERK Principal’s secretary

Good service YOU often read of customer complaints in their dealings with their relevant banking institutions. They should all take their business to Absa Bank in Longbeach Mall – what a pleasure it is to go there. The staff are so pleasant to deal with – I even get a wave and a smile through the window as I pass in or out of the mall entrance. Thank you to you all. HAPPY CHAPPIE Kommetjie

Praise for response WE ARE so quick to criticise our police force, but forget to praise when due. I was assaulted and beaten up in my little house in December and I send a huge “bouquet of flowers” to the Simon’s Town Police Station. They were superb and treated me with such kindness and understanding. They made every effort to help me remain calm and I thank them and the trauma councillor who supported me. Thank you all. I feel safe and cared for in spite of everything. HEINIE-MARIE BUFFARD Simon’s Town

TREASURE: The histor­ ic thatched cottage called Min­y­Mor at Sunnycove has been sold. Photo: Supplied

‘Little cottage’ is sold

THE national monument Min-y-Mor, in Sunnycove, has been sold.

Min-y-Mor is Welsh for “little cottage by the sea”. According to Lorraine Webb, of Fine and Country, the historic thatched cottage is one of Fish Hoek’s two national monuments. She says Min-y-Mor was recently sold to a local buyer who also owns “Craae”, the other heritage listed home in Fish Hoek. In 1921 Josiah Robert Finch, a retired Town Clerk of Cape Town, built his stone and thatched cottage overlooking the bay at Sunnycove. Min-y-Mor was originally called Meerlust

and has a rich history. In 1978 the house was owned by Stella Ross (mother of Hylton Ross – a well known Fish Hoek Lifesaver) and appeared in the March edition of Garden and Home where it was described as “a quaint thatched cottage in the coastal village of Fish Hoek known for its beauty and scenic setting”. The writer remembers delivering Meals on Wheels to Mrs Ross in the 1980s and it was during her ownership in 1982 that Min-y-Mor was declared a national monument along with Craae next door. Craae was built as a watch hut for observing shoals of fish in the bay and is one of the original fishermen’s homes in Fish Hoek. Old

photographs date it towards the end of the 1800s. It was so named as an acronym of the De Smit family’s five children – Cedric, Ray, Audrey, Aileen and Eric, according to Fish Hoek Fossickings. In 1980 Min-y-Mor was examined by Eric Virtue for the National Monuments Council who declared that “as with every thatched cottage in Fish Hoek it could only have been designed by Sir Herbert Baker”. According to Stella Ross, Rudyard Kipling was a famous visitor to the cottage. Today the two houses are well-known for the towering Cypress trees that can be seen as mere saplings in a photo taken around 1905 at the Fish Hoek Valley Museum.

WE ARE upbeat about the outlook for the property market, says Seeff False Bay CEO Gary Grobbelaar. He adds: “It remains a buyer’s market and we anticipate these conditions to persist well into 2014. There is good demand and well-priced properties are selling.” Grobbelaar says what is prudent during these challenging market conditions, though, is for sellers and buyers to work with a credible real estate agency with a proven track record that can provide critical market insight and the right pricing and marketing approach. Overpricing strategies are simply not working and sellers run the risk of not seeing success, he adds. “Likewise, it is vital that buyers are working with a skilled agency that will represent their interest while working in conjunction with the seller to ensure the best outcome for both parties.” He says the False Bay market remains one that offers great opportunity, both for sellers and buyers. Seeff is entrenched across the southern peninsula and continues to deliver exceptional service and success for sellers and buyers, he says. “We have a strategic network of branches that serve the area and continue to introduce additional resources where needed.” Grobbelaar says they are delighted that experienced agents Brett M Cooper and Gerhard Oosthuizen will now operate within the Noordhoek area. “As a partnership they have proven success in residential sales and Cooper, as a Platinum Achiever Agent, has demonstrated exceptional service and sales during his career. Oosthuizen is a long-time resident in Noordhoek as is well known within in the community.” Seeff will shortly be taking up residence in new offices in Noordhoek Valley.

A leap with technology

New rates hike out soon General Manager, JP Farinha, this isn’t a process that should be entered into without sufficient grounds. “The city’s mass appraisal method is becoming progressively more accurate, and as a result, objections to revised property values are unlikely to be considered if based purely on comparisons to other houses in the area,” explains Farinha. “While the system is by no means foolproof, homeowners looking to have their claims heard will need to substantiate them with factual data, based on professional appraisals from industry experts.” The city’s valuations are conducted by professional valuers, statistical analysts and data collectors, and are informed by a number of diverse factors. Over and above more traditional elements such as location and number of bedrooms, assessments take into account everything from subdivisions and renovations to additional construction or demolition. Vacant land is also double rated in order to encourage building, and properties seen to be incomegenerating tend to be ascribed higher, commercial rates. As a result, Farinha believes it is imperative that those looking to lodge a claim do their homework. “In order to substantiate a claim, homeowners will need to have a comprehensive understanding of the various grounds used to assess the value of their home,” says Farinha.

CAPE TOWN homeowners could be in for a nasty surprise when results of the city’s 2012 General Valuation Roll are released in late February.

Revised rates will be published on the City of Cape Town’s website this month, based on an assessment of 800 000 properties within city boundaries that took place on 1 July last year, according to Property24. Another source says the City’s property valuation will be made public on Thursday 21 February and any objections to those valuations must be submitted by Tuesday 30 April. Meanwhile, Property24 reports that valuations, which are based on actual property transactions that have taken place in the three years since the city’s last rates hike in 2009, were conducted using a mass appraisal method. This method assigns weighted values to various property attributes such as size, outbuildings and views. Property24 says City officials have assured rates payers that their comparative market analysis system is accurate, having been significantly refined since the first city-wide valuation in 2000. However, homeowners will have the opportunity to contest the revised valuations should they disagree with the city’s findings. Rates payers will have until the end of April to lodge their objections, but according to Property24

QUICK ACTION: The City’s new rates evaluation will be made public later this month.

their property’s value from the comfort of their own home,” explains Farinha. “Valuations on the site incorporate information from the Deeds Office, and take into account price trends and recent sales in order to ensure accuracy. “Armed with this type of information, homeowners have a far greater chance of success when lodging their claim.” The City of Cape Town has advised rates payers that they will need to continue to pay their required rates until such point as their objection has been resolved. New rates will come into effect from July 2013. – Property24

Vic Duggan has been very successful in the Simon’s Town and Glencairn area during the last quarter. “With the use of some of the latest technology available to us through the Harcourts system, Vic is confident that this has contributed to his current success,” says the estate agency. Through these systems they are linked to numerous property websites which also have a Twitter and Facebook interface. “Our operating systems allow for effective email marketing campaigns that can be designed and distributed in minutes by the agents themselves allowing the agents to be in total control of the properties they are mandated to service, and keep both the sellers and buyers updated at the touch of a button!” The use of an iPad enables the agent to do a valuation, take photos, list the property and sign a mandate in the comfort of the seller’s home. Duggan believes the adage “a picture is worth a thousand words”, so the right photographs are vitally important in attracting the buyers and, in this regard, he is a skilled photographer in his own right. The Fish Hoek office and website have had many compliments in the presentation of available properties. Duggan has also created his own website linked to the Harcourt’s national page and developed a Facebook business website for the office in Fish Hoek.

SA stumble at final hurdle

COULD the Investec South African women’s hockey team beat London 2012 Olympic Games gold medallists and world number one team for the first time in a decade?

This was the question on everybody’s lips at the final of the Investec Challenge where South Africa, ranked 11th in the world, took on the Netherlands on Sunday. It was not to be, but SA made their fans proud at a packed Hartleyvale Stadium, with a stirring performance that produced two topnotch goals in an excellent second half.

The Dutch raced to a 2-0 lead through goals from Roos Drost in the seventh minute and Kitty van Male in the 23rd minute, but the score-line did not reflect the tremendous fight the SA team put up. World record goalscorer Pietie Coetzee and Jade Mayne came close to getting on the scoresheet on a number of occasions only to be foiled by the world’s best shot stopper, Joyce Sombroek, in the Netherlands’ goal during the first-half. Five minutes into the second-half a revitalised SA scored from their second successive penalty corner, when Lisa Deetlefs slapped in

on the rebound. SA put enormous pressure on the Dutch for a sustained period, but midway through the second half the world’s best team – devastating on the counter-attack – came back at pace. Forward Maria Verschoor beat excellent SA keeper Sanani Mangisa from close range taking the score 3-1 in the 55th minute. But the end-to-end action was not over yet, and four minutes later Celia Evans shook off a heavy tackle on the right flank and made ground under much pressure, before firing a cross to Mayne who was lurking near the left post.

The Western Province striker made no mistake from inside box and narrowed the deficit. However, thoughts of SA being able to draw level and force the match into extra time were not to be, as Mangisa palmed a Maartje Paumen screamer over the crossbar before Charlotte Vega scored a relatively soft goal with only seven seconds left in the game for the 4-2 final score-line. In the bronze medal match England beat Australia 3-2 on penalties after regular time finished 2-2 all. Netherlands captain Maartje Paumen finished the tournament as the top scorer with ten goals to her name.

Extreme time! ONE People’s Post reader stands a chance to win a prize worth R2 500 as well as tickets to Cape Town’s largest extreme sports and lifestyle festival.
