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.
