The Panners and Kingswood Village Association (PKVA) is a non-profit association established and managed by property owners in the Panners Lane and Kingswood Crescent precinct.
The primary purpose of the PKVA is to assist in providing outer perimeter security to property owners and residents of the enclosure.
The affairs of the PKVA are managed by a committee of volunteers elected by residents of the precinct at Annual General Meetings. The AGM is held annually, usually in October, and all residents are encouraged to attend. The financials are presented at the AGM and other issues relating to our area are discussed.
There have been periods in the past when community involvement and the activities of the PKVA Committee was very effective and at other times less so. In the past eight years the level of enthusiasm regarding the activities and pursuits of the Committee has followed closely on security incidents that took place. We now have a committed, enthusiastic Committee in place. These Committee members have dedicated much of their personal time and effort to make the PKVA area a better place for all its residents.
Funding of the PKVA is provided by monthly contributions from the residents and property owners within the PKVA. The PKVA operates on a ‘break-even’ basis so when these contributions are not consistent, the existence of the boom comes under threat. We urge all residents to join the PKVA so that we can continue to enjoy the benefits of a well-run and financed community association. If you are a non-contributor and would like to sign up please email the membership secretary, Sue du Plessis.
