We’ve put together some ‘frequently asked questions’ and ‘how to guidelines’ that we think might be useful. Feel free to send other suggestions
We meet each month, except in December and in March when we have the Annual Community Meeting (AGM) where all residents are welcome. So 10 times a year and the odd Ad-hoc meeting when the need arises.
The NRPA receives all applications for subdivision of land from the City. The committee assess the application to ensure that it complies with all current regulations with regard to the specific application. The NRPA will object on the basis of the contravention of regulations. The NRPA strongly supports the principle of maintaining large Erfs in Noordhoek wherever possible in line with the community vision. Large properties maintain the rural nature of the suburb and allows for Livery and Horse Stabling which is an essential component of the Noordhoek lifestyle and Noordhoek economy.
When a planning application is invited for Public Participation one usually has 30 days within which to comment and the date for final submission will be on the “invitation for comment” put out by the City.
These notices will be posted on the subject property itself, an advert is placed in local media (like Echo and Peoples Post) and a notice will be sent to the affected neighbours and the NRPA. The NRPA will then share these notices on this website, in mailers and in social media. You can also find applications on the City of Cape Town have your say portal
The notice gives the property Erf number and address and may contain a link to a website where more detail can be found (as in the case of Environmental Impact Assessments) or it will state that more info can be obtained from the South Peninsula Municipality (one can look at it there or take a flash drive to receive the info.)
The address (web and postal) where one can send the objection is on the notice form. Submit your comments, objections and representations as per the notice. When objecting, it is important to “speak to the legislation” and the point and stay unemotional.
It’s also important to bear in mind that the decisions on matters is done at the Municipal Planning Tribunal so that one should say that one reserves the right to address the Tribunal and that you wish to be informed when the Tribunal will sit on that particular matter (you will have 10 minutes to speak).
All submissions need to include the following:
- The application reference number.
- The details of the person submitting the comment or objection, including your full name, interest in the application, address, contact details and the method by which you can be contacted.
- The reason for the objection, including the effect that the application will have on a person/area and any aspect of the application that you consider inconsistent with policy, and how.
Submissions in writing need to be made to the specified district office on or before the closing date.
All complaints should be directed to the Public Emergency Communications Centre (PECC), also known as 107, on 107 from a landline or 021 480 7700 from a cellphone or @pecc107 on Twitter or Willem.Prinsloo@capetown.gov.za on email. They record and track all complaints and will immediately mobilise the correct Emergency Service(s). The complaint needs to be actual facts of bad driving – preferably with a photos showing licence plate.
You might have noticed that Noordhoek is dark at night. This is for good reason; it contributes to our wellbeing and quality of life. The Unplugged. We can enjoy the stars and fee far from Urban life. No street lights, and no big lights on properties – if you see any, gently remind people of how we like to live here.
Noordhoek has 1871 erfs. Click here for a map showing all Erfs, which are NRPA members and which are not. We estimate between 5000 and 6000 residents in the Suburb of Noordhoek. The Noordhoek Community forum has 6957 members, but we do know that there are many non-residents on the group. The NRPA will seek to achieve a consensus in the coming years, once a database of residents has been established.
