Simon’s Town Civic Association (STCA)

Over the past year, the Simon’s Town Civic Association EXCO has been engaging on a number of issues which affect the residents of Simon’s Town.

The key focus areas for the past year were:

  1. Key Stakeholder Engagement
  2. Vagrants and By-law control
  3. Greening

A number of successes have been achieved in each of these spheres.

Key Stakeholder engagement

This portfolio involved engaging with the South African navy and The Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA)

  • The SA Navy has been slow to respond but we have made some inroads there.
  • PRASA was engaged with regards to expediting the re-construction of the wall at the Simon’s Town railway station

Vagrants and By-law control

  • This portfolio Achieved some success in that a gate was installed at the Whyte’s building which discouraged vagrants from sitting in a disused doorway.
  • Various improvements in Smith’s Lane has led to a reduction in vagrant activity there
  • Periodic monitoring of Chad Cupido who is the dedicated law enforcement officer for Simon’s Town was undertaken

Greening

This portfolio has been very active and has achieved a number of successes

  • The cleaning of Chapel Lane by the Green jobs team
  • Clearing of the Invasive alien vegetation on the corner of Wilfred and Breda Streets

  1. Morning STCA,

    Is there an opportunity to become a part this forum? For example we have had the Navy firing canons for two days in a row. Apart from the stress of the whales, sea creatures, dogs, cats…. are we at war? What is the purpose of this insane activity?

    1. Good day

      Please be advised that the STCA have raised a concern with the relevant authorities regarding the firing exercises and their impact upon the whale season. We are confident that the authorities have things under control. In addition, you are welcome to join the STCA, please visit our page and fill out the form. There is a cost involved. The SA Navy regularly undertake firing exercises as part of training and it must be remembered that the SA Navy were here long before we were. We must respect them and they must respect us. Thank you for your interest in our organisation.
