Residents call for a meeting

2018-06-12 06:00

The Wynberg Residents’ and Ratepayers’ Association has called on the local councillor to come and address some of the hot topics in the community.

The call reportedly followed numerous unsuccessful attempts to bring councillor Liz Brunette to attend normal community meetings.

According to the association’s chairperson, Kristina Davidson, Brunette has agreed to meet with them next month on a date to be announced.

Davidson says they have been advised to formulate a questionnaire to help the councillor prepare the most-needed information beforehand and invite experts to assist in areas of necessity.

Topics expected to be discussed in the meeting include the role of the councillor, development, traffic, crime and problem areas.

“We expect that the discussion will cover the main issues currently under discussion in Wynberg. We have in the past asked several times for a town hall-style meeting because they have proven very positive in at least one other ward we know of,” says Davidson

She urges residents to take the opportunity to interact with authorities.

Davidson says they are delighted that the councillor has shown interest and hopes the meeting will materialise. Interested residents should look out for updates on the association’s Facebook page.

Brunette says she has agreed to meet with the residents towards the end of July as she is currently busy trying to find a suitable venue and schedule.

She says although the residents have indicated their interest of identifying key issues that need to be addressed, she has put the discussion of the interchange, safety and security, and traffic calming as priorities on her list.

Brunette says the meeting will pave the way forward and have a mutual understanding of what is in the community’s interest at the moment.

“I will communicate the details with the community once everything has been set. Meeting with residents is always a good thing. I am working closely with the residents’ committee who have taken the initiative of compiling a list of their key priorities. I will look at them and plan accordingly,” Brunette says.
