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
@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 email@example.com and we will see if we can help direct you to someone who can help.
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.
