Dog Park

As part of the Pinelands CID’s environmental upgrades program, the CID is considering creating a dog park in Pinelands.

The goal of this survey is to gather feedback and opinions from residents of Pinelands regarding this dog park. Your input is valuable in helping us understand the needs and preferences of the community regarding this project. The survey will ask about your thoughts on the location, design, amenities, and rules for the dog park. Click the link to have your say.

Pinelands CID has finalised contracts for City of Cape Town Law Enforcement officers. The two full-time officers were deployed on 1 February 2024 and are dedicated to the Pinelands CID boundary.

The officers have been assisting SAPS with VCP operations in the area. They have also initiated operations for bylaw contraventions.

On 12 February 2024, the Law Enforcement officers and Public Safety Officers assisted SAPS Flying Squad with the arrest of a suspect in possession of a stolen vehicle. Read More

Public Safety

Pinelands CID is delighted to confirm that our Public Safety patrols, together with their associated control room are operational. Four Pinelands CID branded patrol vehicles were deployed with an additional two officers on bicycles patrolling the canal area with the aim of making our public spaces safer. The patrol vehicles operate 24/7 while the bicycles patrol Monday to Sunday during the day.
 
Residents are encouraged to report any security incidents, or suspicious persons or behaviour, in public spaces to the dedicated Pinelands CID control room. Call 087 183 5999 or WhatsApp 084 276 7140.

Maintenance & Cleaning

The service provider, FSG began operations on 1 December 2023. 

Environmental upgrades are planned for the Garden of Remembrance at Central Square. Pinelands CID plans to use this park as a pilot project to make the park a safe, clean and green space.

An audit of the parks and canal area are underway and will determine priority sites that should be addressed. Board members have met with City officials from the Recreation and Parks department, Sub-council Office as well as the Ward Councillor to discuss mowing schedules, maintenance and cleaning services. The team has met with community organisations to address environmental challenges including damage to trees, park equipment and heritage protection. A subcommittee has been created and the team will visit public spaces to identify possible community intervention programmes.

Social Development

We’ve partnered with the City’s Street People Unit. The unit takes a social development approach to people living on the streets and will conduct operations when required. The unit also provides transport for people to access safe spaces and shelters.
 
The Give Dignity campaign states that giving hand-outs is irresponsible and contributes to people living on the street.
