What is a CID?

In accordance with the City of Cape Town’s by-law, a CID (City Improvement District), now official referred to as an SRA (Special Rating Area), is an area where ratepayers agree to pay a levy for supplementary services. The levy is based on property valuations.

The CID does not in any way replace local authority services; by working closely with all role players the CID provides supplementary assistance in terms of security, cleansing, social intervention, upgrading and improving public spaces.

About the GP/OKCID

Up until the introduction of the Green Point City Improvement District in 2001 and Oranje-Kloof City Improvement District in 2002, these areas respectively showed serious signs of urban degeneration and distress. Since inception, the GP/OKCID has acted as a coordinated voice that effectively deals with problems affecting the region. Key services include security, cleansing, social intervention, improving and promoting the area.

Key spokesperson

Marc Truss, Chief Executive



The GP/CID works closely with the City of Cape Town, SAPS, Civic Associations, Community Medics, ER24, Neighbourhood Watches and Private Security Companies.
