Meet your neighbour
We’d love to see more sharable neighbourhoods. Life’s hectic pace along with the way we live in many areas of Joburg doesn’t make for very neighbourly neighborhoods. The concept of connecting to those who live nearby is forgotten, but as a global trend, it’s coming back. Why we love the idea of connected neighbours is to create suburbs that are safer, for residents, pedestrians, exercise fanatics and visitors, a well as suburbs that have good community policing forums. What about cleanliness and recycling in suburbs and collaboration around a whole host of things that matter to the suburb in question?
How do you go about creating a connected neighbourhood? It’s really pretty simple to get started. A neighbourhood can request a private profile from our community manager Thandile.
Our ‘neighbourhood’ team will work with your neighbourhood representative to get the community started. Neighbourhoods will have the opportunity to purchase a mobile app which links the community to the police, the security companies, and other groups that the neighbourhood see as important to their objectives.
