Who we are We are a concerned group of residents trying to make the suburb the premier suburb it should be. Why bncf? Bordeaux North consists of residential homes, businesses and other organisations that make a community. The forum exists to bring all these elements together. Primary objectives Safety – creating a safe and secure suburb for all who live, work, play and visit BN Clean – litter free, tidy, well maintained & good looking suburb Value – extracting the potential value that is intrinsic in the location of the suburb in relation to Sandton CBD
Successes Getting City Parks to install play equipment in the park Tidying up operations of the suburb by Pickitup Weekly tidying up of suburb by gardener Arranging trees and planting of gardens in the park and throughout the suburb Maintaining gardens bi-monthly Close interaction with David Potter – Ward 102 Councillor Fire department repairing and maintaining hydrants throughout the suburb Facilitating ADT security contract for Bordeaux Primary School Representing the suburb on Sector1 Policing Forum and CPF Close interaction with SAPS, Metro Police & other law enforcement agencies Raising issues with the City to be dealt with and interacting with various City departments to find solutions, including; –Noise issues from clubs –Street mechanics and illegal businesses –Speeding, rat running & traffic calming measures –Improper and illegal use of the park by burial societies and stokvels –Derelict and run down properties and illegal/improper use of properties –Illegal taxi ranking –Objecting to improper building applications & plans Facilitating pro-active foot patrols by ADT guards Investigating best security options within suburb limitations Interaction and building relationships with other local residents associations
Security Initiative There has been an increase in violent and forceful crime recently that was not an issue in BN for many years Proactive security is wanted and required as evidenced by the enquiries when the guarding patrols ceased and the increased crime May residents of the suburb were and are not prepared to pay extra for proactive patrolling Other alternatives were investigated and CSS Tactical were allowed to canvass for business. Not enough interest was generated to allow their model to work ADT has between 55% & 60% of the 300 homes as clients For a nominal fee, ADT are prepared to guarantee a vehicle patrolling the suburb for 60% of allowable hours. Other time will be responding to calls. ADT vehicles can be available in the suburb in the other time and as additional response vehicles Only by getting the community involved can crime levels be reduced, working with SAPS, JMPD & security provider
