Gap Housing
I am advised that Alderman Walker wrote letter to the Letters page of the newspaper to correct the report An extract reads : The City recognises that many suburbs within Cape Town are not suited to gap housing developments and existing single residential areas not aligned with public transport infrastructure will not be considered. Furthermore, Cape Town’s natural and cultural assets throughout the city need to be conserved. It is these assets which make our city unique and give it the edge as an attractive place to live in and to visit, and thus, natural and heritage areas and public open spaces are not viewed as appropriate areas for densified residential development.TheSDF succeeds inoutlining how Cape Town could be more inclusive, integrated and vibrant whilst still ensuring that the natural and built environments will not be negatively affected.

gap housing
Read in the Argus that gap housing is to be built in Pinelands. Could we be informed officially where abouts this will be built.

People care
I was with my 3 boys at the "park" on Dagreek yesterday afternoon and was pleasantly to see one of the families who live facing the park doing repairs on the park equipment casued by a group of vandals a few nights earlier. How fantastic that there are still people like this in Pinelands. Thank you!

Clyde Pinelands needs a clean up.
Please could you confirm the ownership and status of clyde pinelands soccer club. The facilities are run down and not maintained as a result not being used. We either need to maintain the facilities or Develope the land. This is a key access point for 70% of our crime

Notice forum for items for sale in Pinelands
I would like to propose that a forum be set up here or in the muse where one can list items for sale or look for items to buy.Cell phones on Gumtree are expensive and Pinelanders would rather buy from each other. I am on the lookout for a car and do not have the funds to phone cell phones on Gumtree. Kwikspar has removed their noticeboard and there is NOWHERE where Pinelanders can advertise

Noise
The noise levels in Pinelands, coming I think, from Athlone Stadium, are ridiculous! Instead of a lovely quiet suburb, I have music or yelling wafting thru the air, & not just one day - the last weeks have been often. SICK of it!! Need peace & quiet back! When will this stop????

Speed Humps: Ringwood Drive
Speed humps are not the answer. Driver behaviour and curbing lawlessness is.

Howard Centre
Two questions for the Howard Centre Management. How come Simply Asia has been allowed to encroach on the walking space and one now has to walk around when going to the post office etc. If I understand correctly Joe Fish was not allowed to do so. Why is there a vendor blocking access to the bicycle racks outside the library? The stand is an eyesore, smells of urine and I'm sure you don't need ID to buy cigarettes. Everything they sell is available from the rent paying shops inside the centre?
