Parklands Home Owners Association newsletter!

Dear Members welcome to the Parklands Home Owners Association (PHOA) electronic newsletter. You are receiving this newsletter as a registered member of the PHOA. The primary function of this newsletter is to update you on the activities of the PHOA.



Chairperson’s Corner

The PHOA office, as all other businesses, had to close during the hard lockdown due to the Covid 19 epidemic. Staff were able to perform some duties remotely from home. The issuing of consents to transfer however came to a standstill as the deeds office was closed and the normal protocols for the issuing of consenst could not be performed. I am happy to report that both the PHOA administration office and the plans office are fully functional again.

The PHOA AGM had to be delayed in August 2020 due to Covid 19. Unfortunantly the Western Cape has shown an increase in the number of Covid-19 infections and hospitalisations again in the province, and the Premier has urged a reconsideration of the hosting of all non-essential gatherings of people this year.

At last the Festive Season is upon us again. The PHOA Christmas tree on the corners of Parklands Min Road and Link Road, Parklands will be switched on in December. This year to avoid gatherings we will not have an official switch on get together, but please keep and eye out for the tree lights.

We are so privileged to have community organisations of the highest standard in the Parkslands, Table View and Blouberg areas. They have been very active in assisting communities and vulnerable groups in our community during the difficult times of Covid 19.

We are happy to announce that we once again provided funding assistance to the following organisations:

Table View Community Police Forum
Table View Neighbourhood Watch
Parklands Neighbourhood Watch
Community Medics
Community Intervention Centre
Women and Beyond
Donation to TLC towards the hosting of a Christmas Party for underprivileged children

The PHOA office will be closed for the normal shutdown period from 17 December 2020 until 6 January 2021.

Members can log service requests relating to municipal services directly with the City of Cape Town through the website www.capetown.gov.za under Service Requests. A reference number will be issued which can be used to follow up on progress.

PHOA December 2019 Newsletter


Parklands Home Owners Association


Parklands Home Owners Association newsletter!

Dear Members welcome to the Parklands Home Owners Association (PHOA) electronic newsletter. You are receiving this newsletter as a registered member of the PHOA. The primary function of this newsletter is to update you on the activities of the PHOA.



Chairperson’s Corner

The Festive Season is upon us again. The PHOA Christmas tree on the corners of Parklands Main Road and Link Road Parklands will be switched on, on Monday 2 December 2019 at 8pm. All members are cordially invited to attend the switching on.

The Parklands, Table View and Blouberg areas are privileged to have community organisations of the highest standard. This has just been proved again last week when the Table View Community Police Forum was awarded the South African Police Services Award for Western Cape Community Police Forum of the year. We would like to congratulate Chairman David Harris and all members of the forum for this great achievement.

Below is Chairman David Harris receiving the award:



The PHOA is very aware of the importance that community organisations and other charity groups play in the community. We are happy to announce our funding assistance to the following organisations:

Table View Community Police Forum
Table View Neighbourhood Watch
Parklands Neighbourhood Watch
Community Medics
Community Intervention Centre
Women and Beyond


Here are some safety tips from a leading insurance company for those lucky enough to go away for the festive season:
  • If there is no-one house-sitting your home this festive season and you plan to lock it up and go, let your security company know as they are often happy to arrange extra security to ensure your house is safe and secure.
  • Give your security company a contact number of a friend or family member in case your alarm goes off.
  • Arrange for a reliable neighbour, friend or family member to regularly pop round to your house to make sure all is in order.
  • Switch off all your lights. You can leave a side lamp on to deter opportunistic crime, as it looks as if someone is home.
  • Make sure your house is locked up and secure – every window, bolt and security gate. Hide keys away.
  • Test and then make sure that your alarm is switched on.
  • Leave curtains and blinds open – nothing reveals that a house is unoccupied so much as curtains drawn during the day.
  • Be careful about what you reveal on social media such as Facebook and Twitter – try not to brag about being away on holiday, as you never know who will be seeing this.
  • Pack your car behind closed doors, as you don’t want your whole neighbourhood to know that you will be away.
  • Switch off your geyser to save electricity.
  • Unplug electrical appliances (except your fridge) to protect them against power surges, which could not only damage appliances but also spark a fire.
  • Make suitable arrangements for your pets.

We again urge residents, as we have done in the past, to support the Community Clean up team's efforts by not putting out bins on non bin days and by not aiding vagrancy by putting out food and other valuables that encourages vagrancy but to rather give through the City of Cape Town's "Give Responsibly" campaign. Residents are also encouraged to join clean up operations.

The PHOA office will be closed for the normal shutdown period from 17 December 2019 until 8 January 2020.

Members can log service requests relating to municipal services directly with the City of Cape Town through the website www.capetown.gov.za under Service Requests. A reference number will be issued which can be used to follow up on progress.
