Welcome to the June 2016 issue of the Blackheath City Improvement District Newsletter

The team here at the Blackheath City Improvement District (BCID) have been very busy improving the Blackheath Industrial Area again over the last month. The winter rains mean increased services to the storm-water networks that need regular cleaning.

The nightmare that is litter is the cause of most of our challenges as we fight the daily battle against litter that gets strewed by pedestrians and passers by on their way through the Blackheath Industrial Area.

Illegal dumping remains a major headache as well as we fight this war. As usual, we appeal to business owners to report illegal dumping to us as soon as possible please? We need to address the illegally dumped matter before it attracts further dumping and further depletes our resources and distracts us from the task in hand.

June sees the end of our financial year and we begin the road to the annual financial audit.

As per the agreement made at our last AGM the BCID submitted our application to extend the term of the BCID to the City of Cape Town. This was approved by the Council and so we will extend of the term of the BCID for another five years from 01 July 2016 until 30 June 2021.

If you have any questions, or are ready to confirm your viewing, please fill in the information required on our website. We look forward to providing you with the perfect home and a friendly neighbourhood.

The Bardale Village journey, since the first home was sold, has been truly exceptional. It has made a lasting, positive impact on the Blue Downs and Blackheath area and has changed the community for the better. Not only has it improved the development of the area, but also offered first-time buyers a great opportunity to get their foot on the property ladder.

As with Phase 1 and 2, Bardale Village’s Phase 3, better known as De Hoop, has something for everyone. Young couples or newlyweds can look forward to starting off in a brand new home and enjoy a family-friendly environment.

Construction to De Hoop, Bardale Village is expected to showcase approximately 182 houses and 196 townhouses.

The houses are ideal for those who prefer the convenience of a lock-up-and-go home. Sizes range from 50 and 100 square meters and vary between two and three bedrooms.

Two-bedroom homes are available in two sizes, 50 and 55.7 square meters. Three-bedroom houses are available in three sizes, 65.7 to 100 square meters. The homes are beautifully designed, spacious with neat finishes and are priced from R615 000 to R830 000.

As a show of how popular property at Bardale Village is, the Western Cape Educational Department has decided to build two extra schools right next to Bardale Village – one high school and one primary school. This will be a great addition to the already established, flourishing schools and crèche.

Bardale village is conveniently located to all major highways and transport services are nearby.
Bardale Village, De Hoop seems to build forth on the foundation set by the already popular Phase 1 and 2. The homes are of great quality and value for money.
