Dear Sunset Beach residents.

Thank you to all for the great support from our residents and SBHOA, as we have managed to get the first new PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) security camera installed at the Donax Road Beach area. 

As can be seen from the pictures below, it provides high quality coverage of the Forata, Donax and Bursa carparks. 

This camera is monitored 24/7 in the Crimewatch control room and will provide a strong deterrent to both petty and serious criminals.

The current level 4 water restrictions in Cape Town, which were approved by Council on 31 May 2017 in response to the ongoing drought crisis which has resulted in critically low dam levels. The new restrictions are effective from 1 June 2017 and the new tariffs apply from 1 July 2017. 

The City is implementing emergency measures to increase the available drinking water supply. 

This includes reducing the pressure in the pipes, dredging the dams and sinking boreholes to tap into the local aquifers. However, the most critical intervention requires all residents to limit water consumption to 100 litres or less per person per day. Residents are urged to ensure they comply with level 4 water restrictions by:

•Using municipal drinking water only for essential washing, cooking and drinking purposes
•Checking and fixing all leaks on your property
•Using alternative water sources wherever possible
•Ensuring you limit your daily usage to less than 100 litres per day
