  • Water Restrictions30th November 2016

    Please be reminded that Level 3 Water Restrictions were introduced by the City of Cape Town on 1 November 2016. Level 3 = 30% water savings.

    These restrictions affects us all and it is everyone's responsibility to save water. We lose/use about 2% of our water resources every week. Cape Town dam levels are currently about 55% but at lower levels the water becomes untreatable. We therefore have about 20 weeks of water left, ie until end-March, if there is no significant rainfall over the summer months.

    Full Water Restriction details (including revised tariffs) can be found on the City of Cape Town and Western Cape Government websites.

    Report Water Restrictions Offences

    Please report anyone who does not adhere to water restrictions using the following methods:
    Call: 0860 103 089 (choose Option 2: Water Related faults)
    SMS: 31373 (max of 160 characters)
    Online: through the CoCT Service Requests tool

    In brief, Water Restrictions Applicable to all Residential Customers:
    • All wellpoints and boreholes must be registered with the City and used efficiently to avoid wastage and evaporation. Click here to Register a Borehole/Wellpoint.
    • Watering/irrigation (with drinking water from municipal supply) of gardens, fields and parks allowed only if using a bucket or watering can. No use of hosepipes or irrigation systems.
    • Residents are to use this method of watering before 9am and after 4pm.
    • No watering/irrigation within 24hrs of rainfall that provides adequate saturation.
    • All properties where alternative, non-potable water resources are used (eg boreholes, wellpoints, grey water re-use, rain water harvesting, etc) must ensure they display the appropriate signage to this effect.
    • No washing or hosing down of hard-surfaced or paved areas with drinking water allowed (except for health purposes.)
    • Ornamental water fountains/water features to be operated only be by recycling the water or if using non-potable water.
    • Washing (using potable water) of vehicles and boats only allowed if using a bucket.
    • Customers are strongly advised to install water efficient parts to minimise water use at all taps, shower heads and other plumbing components.
    • Manual topping up of swimming pools allowed only if fitted with a pool cover. No automatic top-up systems are allowed.
    • The use of portable play pools is prohibited.
    Click for: Simple Water Saving Tips in the Home and Garden:
    • Showering:
    o Use a bucket/s to collect initial cold water before hot water runs through the taps.
    o Continue using bucket/s during shower to collect excess water (this can be used for flushing toilets)
    o Take shorter showers and turn off water while soaping up. Turn water back on quickly to rinse off.
    • Washing Machine and Dishwasher: Only use with a full load.
    • Washing dishes/vegetables or thawing food:
    o Do not use running water for any of the above. Fill a plastic basin to "dip and wash/rinse". When finished, this water can be re-used for toilet flushing/watering garden or next washing-up cycle.
    • Toilet:
    o Place a 2-litre plastic bottle full of water (or a brick) in the water tank (cistern). This could save up to 7 300 litres per annum.
    o Use grey water for flushing (from showering, dishes rinsing) (but do not allow it to stand in the cistern)
    • Cleaning teeth/Shaving:
    o Do not use running water. Plug the basin.
    • Fix water leaks:
    o Dripping taps or leaking toilets should be fixed.
    • In the garden:
    o Plant indigenous plants that require little watering
    o Group plants with the same water needs
    o Put a covering layer of mulch around trees and plants to slow down evaporation and prevent weeds.
    o Water the lawn long enough for the moisture to soak down to the roots.
    Please use water sparingly and let's encourage our neighbours to show that true Tokai residents do work together for the common good!

  • Neighbourhood Watch18th October 2016

    Neighbourhood Watch is one of the most effective ways for neighbourhoods to reduce crime in their surrounding areas. It will also assist in protecting property, reducing car break-ins and house burglary. AN effective Neighbourhood Watch will help in regaining areas from criminals.  Being forewarned as to their techniques and what will go a far way to neutralise the ability to conduct their activities, has already shown excellent results in a number of areas in South Africa.

    Working in conjunction with our local police services and armed response organisations, we can be a formidable team against criminals and their illegal activities. It will require commitment from individuals, and a willingness to participate in keeping the streets clean.  The collaboration and impetus will vary from neighbourhood to neighbourhood, but this can be assessed and formalised by a team from the area and police. Most people would agree that prevention is better that cure. A small price to pay than to see loved ones suffering the often long term effects of being a victim of crime.

    Creating an awareness amongst residents as to the criminals actions and what to be on the lookout for, showing them how to monitor untoward behaviour, as well as who to report issues to, will immediately begin to produce results, while at the same time increase the levels of safety for all our community, from children through to the elderly. This will go a far way to improve our lifestyle and reduce fear of crime in our daily lives.

    Help make your area secure – support your local Neighbourhood Watch group.

    Above is a message issued to the community of Mitchells Plain.  Just as applicable to Tokai!

  • Alderman JP Smith1st October 2016

    If you are not aware of it, there has been some concerning (for many) reports of Ald JP Smith being replaced. Have a look at  and 

    We propose that ALL concerned NW members send the letter below – or amend as you see fit - to the Mayor - - and copy in  and  and  and


    Dear Mayor De Lille

    “We support this viewpoint”

    It is with UTMOST CONCERN that we hear via the press that the intention is to remove Alderman JP Smith from the Safety and Security Mayco portfolio in January 2017. He has done wonders for our City in terms of implementation and facilitating Crime Watches and generally enabling Communities to participate in vital safety initiatives. Such passion and commitment is unrivalled anywhere in South Africa, and we believe that this decision is not in the best interest of the broader Community.

    We have, with his support, pioneered initiatives with the City, which have paved the way for other communities to follow suite e.g. the sponsorship of vehicles for the use of Law Enforcement.

    Additionally, we funded our own Crime Watch Radios in order to free up funding in the City’s Crime Watch radios budget to be rather used in underprivileged areas.

    The results of many of our Crime Watch activities speak for themselves, and facing resourcing challenges within SAPS, cohesive and experienced support from the City is viewed as mission critical.

    We sincerely trust that you will take our concerns on board and use them wisely in the broader interests of our communities.





  • Sidewalks and Cycle track construction in Tokai28th July 2016

    Raubex Construction (Pty) Ltd has been appointed by the City of Cape Town (who has further appointed a member of their group, Strata Civils) to carry out the construction of 1.5m wide Sidewalks and 1.5m Cycle Lanes (where required) in the Tokai area.  This work will include the widening of roads, appropriate kerbing, and the installation of storm-water infrastructure.  Specifically:

    Upper Tokai Road: This construction is limited to the Zwaanswyk intersection and should be completed by mid-August (weather permitting) 

    Tokai Road: Both the northern and southern sides of the road will be upgraded from the traffic circle up to the M3 bridge.  Work should be completed by mid-October 2016. 

    Steenberg Road: Both the eastern and western sides of the road will be upgraded from the Tokai traffic circle to Main Road (starting mid-November 2016 to mid-August 2017) 

    Construction work will take place on a daily basis (Mon-Sat) 08h00 to 17h00.  Non-working days are Sundays and Public Holidays.  During the working period a Stop-Go system will be in place to assist with traffic flow so please allow extra time to travel to your destination.  Residents are also asked to practice patience and abide by the speed restrictions that will be put in place.  This is not only to ensure road users' safety but also the safety of construction staff. 

    Strata Civils are aware that some driveways in Tokai Road may be affected by the proposed construction: 

    Paving: A certain amount of paving will be removed from the residents' driveways to make way for the sidewalk and/or cycle lane.  The paving that is removed will be stockpiled as close to the residents' boundary as possible.  A portion of this paving will be re-used to tie in the existing driveway paving with the new sidewalk/cycle lane.
    Landscaping: Residents are asked to remove any plants and irrigation systems they they wish to keep ahead of the construction activities. Strata Civils will advise affected residents ahead of construction where the sidewalks will be built.

    If you have any queries in this regard, please contact the Site Manager, Rashied Roos, on 084 407 6028 as soon as possible.
