The GCTCA was started in 2005 to co-ordinate the ratepayer’s response to Draft 2 of the City’s Integrated Zoning Scheme (IZS). It was revived in May 2007 to respond to Draft 3 of the IZS and is now involved in many facets of municipal and governmental issues. These include the public’s responses to the City’s newly advertised Draft Spatial Development Framework”, other controversial planning projects, municipal rates valuations and rates policies, as well as crime, housing and general public participation, amongst other issues of common interest (eg the campaign to prevent the public open space adjacent to Princess Vlei being sold by the City for the construction of a very large shopping mall and adjacent parking area (See “Saving Princess Vlei” ‹‹here››).
CBBRA is a founding member of the GCTCA and, since its inception, has been represented on the Alliance’s Executive Committee (EXCO). Please contact EXCO member John Powell on should you wish to be informed further in respect of the GCTCA’s activities or have any queries.
