Traffic signs and traffic-calming measures
The WRRA raised a number of requests for traffic signs and traffic-calming measures flagged by residents. The councillor was unwilling to discuss these and said they were basically service-delivery issues that should be reported along service-delivery channels.
However, the WRRA has included these requests in its proposal for ward allocation projects.

If neighbours start a drive to put up security cameras in our streets, power can be sourced directly from the City’s power lines at a nominal cost.
A formal application must be lodged and the City’s CCTV policy (downloadable from the website) must be followed. Any cameras that look out over roads or public open spaces must be registered with the City.
St John’s Parish Cemetery
The church has undertaken to clean the cemetery in Church Street once a week and is currently looking for funding to fence it in.

Greater cooperation among Wynberg representative groups
In a private discussion between the WRRA representative on the Ward Committee and Cllr Liz Brunette, it was proposed that different Wynberg groups (eg. the WRRA, Wynberg Watch, WID and Solutions) meet from time to time as a group with the councillor in order to discuss issues pertaining to only Wynberg.
That is because the Ward Committee meetings include representatives from Constantia and other suburbs, as well as environmental, security and social organisations – and Wynberg has specific needs that do not apply to the other organisations.
The WRRA will take the initiative to organise the first of these meetings.
