14 May 2010

IDP PRIORITIES FOR WARD 5

All these items are top priority.

* Crime prevention measures, including drug trafficking, prostitution, human trafficking

* Multi-purpose centre which will include a youth centre for skills development, computer and technical skills, etc. (Dagbreek Teachers College)

* More clinics in the ward, currently there is only one clinic at Rose Street, the clinic at Lillian Diederichs closed down as well as the one at Trafalgar Square, North End

* Upgrading of the parks and playing fields as listed

* Erection of public toilets, vicinity of stadium, North End and Central (original application, February 2007)

* Incubators and containers for SMME’s

* Projects ring fenced for young people, skills development organization for the young

* Illegal dumping especially at the old cemetery and Adler Street vicinity

* Traffic calming measures at:

a. Prince Alfred Road (upgrade), North End including traffic calming

b. Gipson Road opposite the Provincial Hospital. There is an existing pedestrian crossing that is ignored by most vehicles and should be turned into a traffic calming pedestrian crossing. There should also be a traffic calming measure installed in Gipson Road from both sides of St. Croix Avenue which is the access road to the emergency unit of the Provincial Hospital.

c. Westbourne Road, Central. Access to Erf 2960, for students of PE College.

* Floodlights at:

a. The Green, Erf 518, Mount Road an existing sport and recreation area with two hard tennis courts. The field itself is used regularly by numerous young children to play football. The floodlights would allow access in winter between 17h00 (after school) and 19h00, solar lighting would be the most practical solution.

b. Erf 184, Voyle Street, Sydenham, needs upgrading as a sports field
