Drivers of vehicles with dark tinted glass should open their windows when stopping at the Security gate so that personnel can check that the occupants are not under duress.

As a result of the massive disruption, the gardening cycles have been reset to allow the gardening service to follow the clean up. Please expect interruptions in normal service for the next 2 weeks whilst we prepare the property.

The cost of the pass is $10 per annum (or $1 per month or part thereof if purchased during the year) and may be applied for by the resident responsible who should contact Security Services at the main entrance or by telephone on 327-6943.
