About the GP/OK CID (City Improvement District)
In accordance with the City of Cape Town’s by-law, a CID (City Improvement District) is an area where ratepayers agree to pay a levy for supplementary services. The levy is based on property valuations. These areas are now officially referred to as an SRA (Special Rating Area).
The CID does not in any way replace local authority services. Instead, by working closely with all role players, they provide supplementary assistance in terms of security, cleansing, social intervention, upgrading and improving public spaces. There has been a significant improvement in the areas of Green Point and Oranje-Kloof since the GP/OK CID started in 2001. Read more…
Membership is open to all the property owners who are encouraged to apply for membership so that they exercise their rights to influence the business of the CID. Membership cannot be denied and the property owner is entitled to attend, participate and vote at the Company meetings held under the auspices of the Companies Act.
Should a member be unable to attend they may give another individual their proxy to attend and vote on their behalf. Non-members may attend and participate but cannot vote and as such may thus have limited influence on the CID activities.
To be the City of Cape Town’s leading supplementary service provider for nurturing a safe, clean, attractive and accessible business and residential environment.
Our Chief Executive Marc Truss is a commissioner of oaths, so please feel free to contact him when you need documents certified.
