Cape Town Stuff!

The City of Cape Town has completed the General Valuation for 2015. Property owners will soon receive an official notice in the post or via e-mail, advising them of the 2015 valuation of their property/properties. This is the first year that the total valuation of all rateable properties has passed the trillion rand mark in value. Read more below:

The City’s latest general valuation shows that the total valuation of all rateable properties has increased from R911 billion in 2012 to R1 156 billion in 2015. Property owners would therefore be encouraged to see that their property investment is still increasing in value in most areas in Cape Town.

In total there are 845 764 rateable properties on the General Valuation Roll (GVR) for 2015. The largest portion of properties comprises residential properties (719 681). It also includes, among others, 31 296 commercial properties. Continue reading

It might look exotic and pretty, but the tree of heaven is an extremely harmful invasive species. To date, the City has almost 200 records of the tree of heaven (Ailanthus altissima) in Cape Town and urges members of the public to report any sightings of this tree to assist with the development of an effective management programme.

A draft Freight Management Strategy to ensure that freight transport within Cape Town is safe and efficient, serves the needs of the economy without compromising the access and mobility of other road users, and that freight operators comply with regulations, is available for public comment. Read more below:

‘Our local and regional economy is based on global trade and depends largely on the efficient road-based transport of cargo to and from the port, airport and between cities and towns. The City is responsible for the provision of a safe, efficient and reliable road network. We must, however, also take into consideration the significant impact that road-based freight has on the city’s roads and the urban environment. Counting among the effects are carbon emissions, congestion and road accidents. Furthermore, the cost of maintenance of our roads amounts to R713 million per year – a cost that is currently not equitably divided between freight vehicles, public transport, and private motor vehicles,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member: Transport for Cape Town, Councillor Brett Herron.

Stress exposure training offered by the US Drug Enforcement Administration is one of the measures the City is using to counter the ever-increasing volatility and danger that City enforcement officers face in the execution of their duties. Read more below:

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) of the United States Department of Justice will be presenting a specialised course to selected members of the City of Cape Town’s Metro Police, Traffic and Law Enforcement Departments this month.

The Stress Exposure Training: Officer Safety and Survival Programme was launched this morning, 15 February 2016, and is scheduled to be completed on 26 February 2016.

In 2014, the City’s Civilian Oversight Committee called on the City’s Trauma Practitioner to investigate possible training interventions that could assist officers in responding effectively when they find themselves in highly dangerous, stressful situations. The investigation found that standard police training does not adequately equip officers to deal with such situations and recommended that the Safety and Security Directorate look at the possibility of introducing stress exposure training, which has in recent years been developed for policing agencies in the United States and military units in various countries.
