RUDP NPC Report Back

REPORT BACK TO THE MEMBERS OF THE RAMSGATE URBAN DEVELOPMENT PRECINCT NPC At the 2018 AGM the RUDP NPC Board promised to pursue the report back on the VAT levied on the UIP payment itemized on the Ray Nkonyeni Municipality Rates accounts received on the monthly basis. We had, as had others, queried whether or not the VAT was legally being charged on the levy which we believe is not product or service rendered to the consumer. At the recent meeting held at Ray Nkonyeni Municipal offices in Margate last week, it was confirmed that the Municipality was erroneous in the billing of VAT on the levy since the inception of same. As a direct result, the Members will notice on their Municipal Rates account of 31st January 2019 that their billing is R7.09 less. That was the VAT value on the R47.25 UIP levy billed every month. It was confirmed at the aforementioned meeting that every Ramsgate Ratepayer will receive a credit in due course for the total VAT the Ratepayers have been billed on the levy prior to accounts dated 31 December 2018. Annual ratepayers will receive their credit on their next billing. The Board of the RUDP NPC would like to highlight the persistent work of Mike Geiger in providing the momentum that has brought about the positive resolution of a long outstanding matter. The RUDP NPC wishes to thank Ray Nkonyeni Municipality and its representatives for their input into this process and we look forward to working together into the future for the benefit of all those involved in the wellbeing of Ramsgate and its... read more

Ramsgate Ratepayers & Residents’ Association Outcomes of the Strategic Planning

Outcomes for the Strategic Planning meeting of the Executive Committee of the Ramsgate Ratepayers and Residents Association (RRRA), on Monday 14 May 2017 Background Following the Annual General Meeting of the RRRA, the Executive Committee was concerned about the poor turn-out at the event despite good publicity and holding the meeting during the school holidays, when many non-residents were ‘in town’. It was felt therefore, that an analysis of the issues affecting residents needed to be conducted and to this end, it was agreed, that a strategic planning meeting was essential to identify the key areas where the RRRA was not achieving its targets or meeting the expectations of residents, and to identify solutions to address the issues.  A questionnaire soliciting the views of committee members was circulated before the meeting. Members asked to answer a number of questions and/or identify issues under the following headings; the Challenges, the Residents, the Municipalities, the over-arching bodies which oversee the Ramsgate NGOs and the Ratepayer Associations on the Lower South Coast. The responses were analysed, consolidated and presented to the committee at the start of meeting. Thereafter the members identified the five most important issues that need to be addressed. These were: The lack of awareness of the functions and role of the RRRA and the general apathy of residents Insufficient feedback to residents on the positive aspects and achievements of the RRRA The importance of building relationships based on trust and mutual concerns with residents and the authorities The need to recruit more residents to become involved in the functions of the RRRA Improve communications particularly with residents and ensure that there is effective follow-up on issues Outcomes  Following considerable debate and analyzing each of the above five points, the committee concluded that the while the various portfolios, viz. Infrastructure:... read more

Ramsgate Urban Development Precinct

THE RAMSGATE URBAN DEVELOPMENT PRECINCT IS NOW ACTIVE!!!! After Ramsgate property owners started to recognise that establishing a Special Rating Area (SRA) can be the answer to help decrease crime rates and increase the collective value of their neighbourhood, they followed in the footsteps of Southbroom and Marina Beach by voting for the establishment of a Special Rating Area for Ramsgate.  After fulfilling all the legal requirements set down under Section 22 of the Municipal Property Rates Act (No. 6 of 2004), the creation of the SRA was subsequently ratified by the Ray Nkonyeni Municipality in mid-2017. Now a Non-Profit Company NPC has formally been registered as is legally required and called the Ramsgate Urban Development Precinct NPC. The Ramsgate Urban Development Precinct NPC consists of a Board of Directors that are drawn from the four Non-Governmental Organisations active in Ramsgate, namely the Community Policing Forum, the Ramsgate Conservancy, Ramsgate Tourism and the Ramsgate Ratepayers Association, plus Ramsgate ratepayers who are not members of those organisations who can add special value. The RAMSGATE URBAN DEVELOPMENT PRECINCT NPC through its Memorandum of Incorporation has a clearly defined mandate and that includes: To promote co-operation between the South African Police Service and the fulfilment of the needs of the local community in general and regarding Policing; To determine, promote and protect the interests and concerns of the ratepayers and residents of Ramsgate through approved financial assistance to projects run by Ramsgate CPF, Ramsgate Conservancy, Ramsgate Ratepayers and Residents Association and Ramsgate Tourism. The RAMSGATE URBAN DEVELOPMENT PRECINCT NPC has already received payments from the rates collected by the Ray Nkonyeni Municipality from the Ramsgate homeowners and within the next few weeks will be receiving and scrutinising the annual budget for the operational costs of the Ramsgate Community Policing Forum. The RAMSGATE URBAN DEVELOPMENT... read more
