SAPRA is made up of a group of local residents who represent the interests of the residents in Saxonwold and Parkwood.

Our primary function is to assist and deal with local problems experienced, which generally is the adherence and enforcement of by-laws. Examples would include ensuring that building regulations (by-laws and heritage) are adhered to, or that advertisers comply with council requirements when they advertise.

However, this is not where our role ends and SAPRA has a long tradition of adopting a pro-active approach and will tackle challenges of all sizes – from street cleaning right up to participating and influencing the layout of the proposed Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) in our suburbs.

SAPRA is effective because of the dedicated efforts of the committee members all of whom are volunteers, the network it has built over the years which allows it to address issues with the relevant party and access to the local councillor who sits on the committee.
