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.
