About the BCA

The Blairgowrie Community Association (BCA) is dedicated to fostering communication amongst residents and businesses in Blairgowrie (including Hillcrest and Wendy Avenues on our side of the Spruit) as well as Pine Park.

Above all, the BCA is here to facilitate the Blairgowrie community to make our suburb a better place to live in.

Communicate – Educate – Escalate

That should probably read “About YOU” because if you own a property or live in the area or run a business here then YOU are the Blairgowrie Community Association (BCA)

The BCA is a registered, Nonprofit Organisation or NPO (2009/016969/08) and is the Community Association, mandated at each AGM by the residents and businesses, to represent them in matters concerning the above-mentioned suburbs / streets.

The BCA is also a Region B registered Stakeholder which means we are officially listed with the City of Joburg as the Body representing this area.


Mission Statement

“We are building the most sought-after suburb in Johannesburg. A suburb where everything works 100% of the time, where people can walk safely in our streets and play in our parks, where businesses thrive and where neighbours are more than just people who live next door.”



The BCA was formed on 28 January 2010 at a Public Meeting at the Blairgowrie Recreation Centre.

The committee is a group of Blairgowrie residents, all volunteers, who believe in working effectively with all parties concerned towards a safe and secure suburb which all Blairgowrie residents can call “Home”.
