Residents fed-up with delays to close areas

KEVIN Walker, chairman of Edleen Proper Ratepayers' Association (middle) and Raoul Otto the vice-chairman hand over their memorandum to Mr Motubatse.

MEMBERS of the Kempton Park community handed over a memorandum to Mr Motubatse, head of urban planning at the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality after a peaceful demonstration in front of the municipal offices on September 26.

The demonstration was arranged in co-operation with AfriForum’s Kempton Park branch, Edleen Proper Residents’ Association (EPRA) and Kempton Park Gated Community after the community’s pleas to the municipality fell on deaf ears.

The memorandum demanded, among things that:

• Applications in terms of access-controlled areas be heard and approved or declined in terms of the Rationalisation of Local Government Affairs Act (Act No 10 of 1998);

• Delays in the processing of current applications be stopped immediately

• Correspondence and communication between the municipality and public stakeholders be viewed as a priority.

“The community demands a reply from the municipality within 30 days and will continue to apply pressure to ensure that municipal tasks are being performed,” says Rian van Jaarsveld, chairperson of AfriForum’s Kempton Park branch.
