Cape St Francis Civics approve CCTV concept
Cape St Francis Civics and Ratepayers Association recently requested permission from council to install CCTV cameras in certain hot spots in Cape St Francis. The council meets on Thursday 9th and the association hopes to receive positive feedback on the issue with a go ahead to start installing a camera network..
A well-attended public meeting regarding security of Cape St Francis was held in October and various options were discussed. Generally it was agreed the most effective and tried option is that of CCTV cameras along with Licence Plate Recognition technology .
The plan is to phase the camera installation into 3 phases, namely, Phase 1 – the entrance/exit of Cape St Francis, Phase 2 – Da Gama Rd and Osprey Rd intersection and Phase 3 – Shearwater Drive and the Nature Reserve. We have already received pledges that fund phase 1 and 2 and will begin installation as soon as municipality approval has been given. Anyone wanting to get involved or add their pledge can please contact the Cape St Francis Civics and Ratepayers Association at
