We still need approximately R3m for the completion of the construction. Below is a summary of the current status:
Total cost for operation of the initiative on a monthly basis is estimated at R563,000 broken down as per below:
How much is the debit order?
R 650-00 pm
We are confident that at least 65% of the residents will be contributing R650 per month. If we are able to get this number higher we are able to reduce this monthly amount accordingly i.e. if we could get 75% contribution then monthly could be about R550.
When does it start?
1 March 2022 for start of operation on 1 April. We need to start the debit orders on 1 March and have the funds in the bank (i.e.debit orders in place) before we can commit to the guarding services on 1 April.
What does the debit order cover?
Guards, CCTV monitoring, maintenance and insurance, Estate Manager, Levy Administration and Bookkeeping by Paxton, Annual Audit fees, Insurance and Public liability cover for our own NPC, Provision for our re-application, gate administration, Streetsafe management and a Reserve fund.
This amount does not include armed response. We are still negotiating armed response monthly amounts from the current providers – this will be in the order of R350 per month.
How do I sign up for a debit order?
Documentation on the website, via street captains, at the on site control room in Crown Street, at each guard house. Here is the link to the debit order form.
How can I cancel my debit order?
In writing to our administrators Paxton Cerva or contact your bank. Most banks also have the debit order cancel option on their mobile apps.
If Debit Order is not for you then please consider paying by scheduled monthly EFT. Account details here
