Welcome to SAPRA
The Home of the Saxonwold and Parkwood Residents Association
Our function is to assist with the problems of residents which generally relate to the monitoring and enforcement of legal norms and standards, such as ensuring adherence to building regulations (by-laws and heritage), requiring advertisers to comply with the by-laws and for safe and clean parks.
SAPRA adopts 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.
All of our committee members, other than the secretary, are volunteers. Our local councillor and other civic leaders sit on the committee and facilitate communication with the City.
This site is available for all members of SAPRA and also for those who might be interested in the affairs of SAPRA. To view the site you must register either to become a member or an "interested person". Members are entitled to exclusive benefits.

Year End Holidays
The SAPRA office will be closed for the Christmas Holidays and will reopen on Monday, 14th January 2019. May we take this opportunity to wish all members and their families a very safe and happy holiday break and a peaceful New Year.
