The management of the Chapman’s Peak Drive toll-road includes the participation of surrounding communities and the facilitation of socio-economic procurement policies and SMME support. The overarching purpose is to:
- Empower community leadership around Chapman’s Peak Drive.
- Keep them informed of the latest developments.
- Ensure down-stream opportunities by employing people from local communities in the operations, maintenance, safety and security of the toll-road.
Good corporate citizenship and reinvestment in the community is very high on Entilini’s priority list. The Chapman’s Peak Community Trust is a legal entity which has been established to undertake social responsibility projects or programmes in the Chapman’s Peak area and to align all community projects in order to obtain a holistic overview of community development. The Trust, together with the Red Hill Community Forum, a charity organisation in the Chapman’s Peak area, coordinates development programmes such as church organisations, youth programmes, the women’s organisations and education programmes.
Entilini has recruited people from surrounding disadvantaged areas such as the Hangberg Fishing Village, Imizamo Yethu in Hout Bay, Masiphumelele, Red Hill and Westlake on the Noordhoek side to work at the toll-plaza. All these communities belong to the Chapman's Peak Community Trust. The Trust also facilitates a Business Development Forum in Hout Bay that focuses on the development of small and medium-sized businesses.
