City Wards

A new ward, Ward 115, was introduced in the City Bowl for the 2016 municipal elections. Registered voters vote in the Voting District to which they have been assigned (usually that closest to their place of residence). Displayed here are the new ward boundaries and you can either log onto the IEC website at and type in your address to see which voting station you must now use, OR SMS your ID to 32810 and you will be told if you are registered and at which voting station.

This is the final ward 77 map from the City showing our new area since the creation of Ward 115.

Feed-back from Ward 77 committee meeting of the 14th November 2018: 

The new mayor, Dan Plato, has indicated that his tenure will focus of a return to basics, namely safety, security and municipal services.

This will be welcome news to residents as criminal activity in the upper and West City Bowl has seen a marked rise. Metro Police staff is to be increased to better meet the safety & security needs. 

Tenders: The City will be tightening the tender process as none of 67 supplies tenders had been found to be compliant.

Events: Cllr. Brandon Golding also asks that the community comment on events applications to enable him to better pursue issues with the City’s Events Office. CIBRA’s representative on the ward committee gave examples of events applications made only a short few days before an event, and in a recent case, on the eve! This whilst the City’s Events Policy sets a 15-day minimum, to enable residents to comment if they so wish.

The Old Town House (Michaelis Museum): this building is very much in need of renovation and has been closed for several years now. The City is looking into finding funds to budget for this.

HPOZ: Last but not least, the mayor has indicated his intention to fast-track the proclamation of the pending HPOZs which had been placed on hold indefinitely in the past.


Our new sub-council 16 chairman is Matthew Kempthorne who takes over from Dimitri Qually who retired. Sub Council 16 comprises Wards 54/57/74/77/115. Matthew is a Capetownian who says the key issues are traffic congestion, affordable housing, and the balance between residents, commuters, and tourists. Other issues are security, sustainability, smart living, re-cycling, and protection of our unique environment.


The City Councillor for our Ward 77 is Brandon Golding:

Due to changes instituted by the Municipal Demarcation Board, the geographical composition of the ward has changed. In practice this means that Ward 77 is now largely a residential ward comprising the areas of Bo Kaap, Tamboerskloof, Higgovale, Oranjezicht, Vredehoek, Devil’s Peak, High Cape, part of Lower Gardens and District Six.
