March Newsletter

Dear Resident

Our new camera system is up and running and you’ll be impressed with the clarity of images provided by the new cameras we have installed.  These help the CSS control room to monitor and respond to events around our suburb. There was only one attempted house robbery during March, read about it here.  

It's worth noting that follow-home crimes seem to be on the decline, but opportunistic crimes remain a concern. With the assistance of alerts triggered by cameras in neighbouring areas - Craighall and Blairgowrie -  a fence hopper was apprehended last month. Keep a look out for suspicious vehicles and call it into CSS on 0861 911 119 to alert the patrol vehicle.  

In addition we are in discussions with neighbouring residents' associations to see to what extent we can share the information from our license plate recognition (LPR) cameras. The intention is to find ways to share information speedily from cameras belonging to different residents' associations in the interest of security for all.

You will have recently received your statement of contributions as at 28 February 2017. Please check the statement to ensure that all contributions that you have made are properly reflected. Should you have any queries or cite any errors on your statement, please contact  and we will assist you as soon as possible.

Please note that section 18A certificates have not been issued due to a delay in resolving some queries with Standard Bank regarding returned contributions.  We hope to resolve these queries and commence the issuing of the Section 18A certificates within the next two weeks.  As you are aware, because we have now been granted Public Benefit Organisation status under Section 18A of the Income Tax Act, the contributions you make to the HGC are tax deductible.  For the past financial year this means that you can expect to recover R300 per month.

When it comes to the increasing number of townhouse complexes and multi-level dwellings in the HGC area, we have devised a new fee structure to encourage new members to join and contribute to the HGC. Please contact for more details.   Are you a contributor?

Read about how the City has introduced new initiatives aimed at curbing the ever increasing problem of illegal dumping as well as allocating R6m as part of its 'No Join' programme to replace cabling at key traffic intersections to prevent traffic faults. A new JMPD hotline has also been launched where you can report traffic problems.  

Thanks for caring about where we live.

Kind regards
The HGC Committee
