Welcome to BMRA
The BMRA website has been created as a community service to inform the residents of the area on local information, matters, events and items of general interest to them. Whilst all reasonable steps are taken to ensure the accuracy and integrity of information provided, no liability or responsibility whatsoever is accepted if information or data is, for whatever reason, incorrect.
The area in which the Association operates is a sought-after one with easy access to transport routes, shopping centres and business hubs, yet is a secure, stable, well maintained suburban environment, catering to all ages and a short walk, ride or drive away from the scenic beauty of the Constantiaberg Valley. The area boasts premier schools, retirement facilities, sporting and other community facilities as well as various small shopping centres catering for the needs of the community.
Whether you are a member of the Association, resident of the area or an interested member of the public, we hope that this site will assist you in finding out more about our Association and the area in which it operates; and the businesses and organisations that are based in our community.
On this website you will also find contact details for the various departments of the City of Cape Town as well as contact details for some of the organisations/churches/schools in the area.
If you are a resident who does not belong to the Association, we would love to welcome you as a member. The more members we have, the more representative we are, and the more effective we will be in ensuring that the area retains its integrity. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org for information on how to join.
The Association has as its objective, the protection of the rights and interests of its members as well as the protection and preservation of the residential integrity of the area which includes the built and natural environment of the area.
