Building Update.

The Estate is very busy at the moment with new houses going up at a fast rate. There are new faces as residents move into their new completed homes. Winter is here and it is dark on the Estate when the builder's start. Everyone seems to be indoors by 19h00 enjoying their homes warmth. The parks are looking in good health with park benches for those who enjoy the winter air.

Speeding is still a BIG problem on the Estate; please note that the speed limit is 35km's per hour. Fines will be enforced for all those who speed.

Please note that there are more and more children living on the Estate so please stop at the stop streets, yield when necessary and do not speed.

Winter is upon us. This does not mean that the construction has cooled off though. As you will see from Bianca's report we have reached fifty completed homes, with a further twenty seven under construction at the moment.

On that note, Kelderhof has always encouraged "green" building initiatives. Now, however it is law. As of the 15th of April all new building plans, submitted to council, have to include energy usage calculations in accordance with the City of Cape Town's "XA Regulations".


So, if you are the proud owner of a plot at Kelderhof and you intend joining the family of residents any time soon, please remember that your architect will need to include solar geyser/ heat pump, fenestration and insulation details on your plan. Please refer to the City of Cape Town's website for more information.

On the Security front, we are working hard at keeping our residents safe. The introduction of a guard dog by Xone Security seems to have helped in this regard. He patrols the Northern perimeter of Kelderhof, with his handler, from 7 in the evenings until 7 in the morning. Seven days a week. Now, that's what I call dedication! The guards also use the thermal camera every night to monitor the Southern boundary, closest to the railway line. These initiatives have resulted in an incident free month. Hopefully this will continue for the foreseeable future. We are also in the process of digging a trench along the fence line and filling it with building rubble. Hopefully this will stop would-be thieves from digging under our fence.

Also, the electric fencing contractor has confirmed that they will start with the full-strand electrification of the fence in June 2012. The fence should be completely covered by full-strand electric wires in the next three to four months.

Please remember that security is a joint effort. Please make sure that if you reside at Kelderhof, you have the contact numbers for the guard house and please do not hesitate to contact them at any time the need may arise.

Here's to wishing all a happy winter. Snuggle up with a loved one and keep warm.
