The Zwartkop Golf Estate HOA

Dear Residents

Herewith my last news clip of the year before we break for the festive season. Please enjoy your holidays, keep safe and trust see you in good health in the New Year.

Board position
We would like to welcome and thank Hannes Struyweg who joined our Board. Hannes brings loads of knowledge and experience with him and we are therefore delighted to have him on board.
The ZHOA is still looking for more residents willing to help and serve on the Board.

Gardens
Thanks for the many compliments we received on the entrance upgrades we completed. We are now giving the internal entrances attention and hope to make a difference there as well.
May we ask you to please look at your own gardens and cut the grass before leaving for the holidays.

Dolomite management
The lightly sagged road in Jones Creek will now be fixed after the Board approved the proposed solution and cost.

New construction
There are currently 10 houses being renovated or built.

Bicacon, the construction company that owns the first property on the left as you enter Nelson Woods has completed the demolishment of the old house and the cleaning of the stand. Plans and ideas for the development of the stand will be shared with the Board in the new year.

Hagen Manor
The contract with the developer of the five new stands in Hagen Greens is approaching finalisation. Werner Nolte, our Chairman spent a huge amount of time on the contract making sure all aspects are covered to ensure a smooth and hassle free development. Thanks to our Chair.

New Ashwood (next to Nelson Woods) development
The office received a letter from the developer's town planner that is setting out certain amendments to the proposed development. The next phase is the arbitration process by the Council that will take place in the middle of 2019 when the development will be either approved, rejected or permitted to go ahead with certain changes.

Fibre for Jones Creek, Vardon Fairways and Hagen Greens
Open Serve, the fibre cable installers have started the installation of the fibre facility. Yes it is messy but we request to please be patient as we will fix, repair and clean the affected area afterwards. The bad news is that the trunking will be completed by year end but that the installers will only return in the New Year to complete the project.

Security
We successfully replaced the current operating system with the improved Flir system and all the benefits associated with the switch-over were achieved.

We changed the control procedures as far as the protection of residents on the golf course is concerned. A guard is now present on the south side of the golf course between 5h00 and 7h00 and 17h00 and 19h00. Please report any incidents or observations so further improvements can be made by our Operations Manager.

We are also continuously working on many smaller issues to improve the overall security in and around the Estate.

Sale and rental of houses
During the month one house was sold and 5 houses were rented out. The selling price was just under R12k per square meter.

Do you know?
The Memorandum of Incorporation and the Sectional Title Schemes Management Act are both defined as founding documents. The founding document is the sole governing document of the organisation and covers the management, conduct and aesthetic rules and regulations. These rules must be followed by its members, the board representing the members and the management of the organisation.

The founding document fulfils an extremely important function where disputes arise amongst members and/or between members and the Board. It is the 'bible' of the organisation and should be respected as such by all parties. Be aware that the founding document cannot contradict any statute law as statute law overrules the founding document where there is conflict. Changes to the founding documents needs a 75% majority vote at a special general meeting or an annual general meeting.

Our MOI has been updated recently and approved at the May 2018 AGM and can be accessed on our website at www.zwartkopgolfestate.co.za

Regards, and until the next time.

Aesthetics

Similar to last month, this month's snippet comes from Attachment B (Rules), as contained in the Estate's Memorandum of Incorporation:
B. Streets, Sidewalks and Open Spaces
1. The streets of the Estate are intended for vehicular and pedestrian traffic by all Occupants. Drivers of motor vehicles do not have a preferential right of use and are obliged to afford all other users of roads an equal use right
2. The speed limit is restricted to 40 km per hour. Save for the above, the applicable Gauteng Road Traffic Ordinance or similar legislation shall be and remain in force.
3. Parents are obliged to ensure that their children do not play in the streets. Drivers of motor vehicles are obliged to take special care while driving so as to allow for the possible presence of people in the streets.
4. Engine powered vehicles are not allowed to drive anywhere except in the streets. Vehicles are not allowed in public spaces, on Common Property or on pavements or sidewalks, save in designated parking areas.
5. Parking on side-walks and in the streets is not allowed.
6. Where there are no sidewalks, the streets are for the use of vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians. All users are to take special care as the streets are quite narrow. Pedestrians will at all times have right of way and may utilize the road as passage.
7. The use of motorcycles or other vehicles with noisy exhaust systems is prohibited.
8. Bicycles, motorcycles and/or skateboards are prohibited from using cart paths and/or walkways or jogging paths on the golf course, and may only be used on the streets or sidewalks.

11. Operating any vehicle in such a manner as to constitute a danger or a nuisance to any other person or property is prohibited.
Resident's attention is specifically drawn to section B2 regarding the general speed limit of 40 km/h on all roads in the Estate, as well as B10 prohibiting the driving of golf carts by children under the age of 16. Please adhere to these (and all other) Estate Rules to protect and enhance the secure and superior quality lifestyle we all enjoy in our Estate.
