The Proposed Extension of Houmoed Ave

Have a service delivery issue? Here’s how to resolve it.

Although Facebook posts are a useful way for our community to have conversations, there are more efficient and effective ways to get action when you have a service delivery issue.

Try these options first:

The City of Cape Town has Service Delivery and Complaints Centre
contact.us@capetown.gov.za or
@CityofCT on Twitter
or phone 0860 103089

This electronic reporting system ensures that your contact is logged & a reference number will track progress.

You can also log complaints yourself at the below link:
Report issues to CoCT

Burst and leaking water mains, faulty and leaking water meters, blocked and overflowing sewers – SMS to 31373. 

Electricity fault reporting, power outages; pre-paid meter queries can also be sent via SMS to 31220.

Emergency complaints should be directed to the Public Emergency Communications Centre (PECC) on:

  • 107 (from a landline)
  • 021 480 7700 from a cellphone or
  • @pecc107 on Twitter.

They record and track all calls and will immediately mobilise the correct emergency service(s).

If you have tried these avenues without success then email civic@nrpa.org.za and we will see if we can help direct you to someone who can help.

Crimes/Suspicious Activity

Contact your local neighbourhood watch – see link below. Please do report all crimes to our local police station (Fish Hoek – 021 782 6289) and to your neighbourhood watch.
