In January 2011 — seven years after the first edition of the eagerly-awaited Northside Chronicle hit the streets — a new updated version of the paper was introduced in the northern areas of Roodepoort.

The new weekly to now keep a lookout for is the Roodepoort Northsider. But why the change?

The award-winning Northside Chronicle was launched in 2004 in tandem with the long-established Roodepoort Record. From the impetuous beginning, residents and advertisers alike embraced the newspaper as the voice of the independent community living in the northern areas of Roodepoort — or Northside — as it quickly became known by all. However, Northside — a name we appropriately coined — has no relevance to a specific geographical area to people not familiar with Joburg West, hence the name change to Roodepoort Northsider.

Northside is arguably the fastest-growing region in terms of residential, business and industrial development.
