What is a CID

What is a 
City Improvement District?

A City Improvement District (CID) also known as a Special Rating Area (SRA) is a clearly defined geographical area in which property owners pay additional property rates to fund “top up” municipal services to improve or upgrade that specific area.

SRAs can be commercial, industrial, residential or a combination of any of these and are known as Improvement Districts, City Improvement Districts, Business Improvement Districts, or Community Improvement Districts.

“Top up” services typically include:

  • additional public safety;
  • cleansing services;
  • urban maintenance;
  • upgrading of the environment; and
  • social upliftment

A noticeable decline in safety & security, and a steady increase in vagrants and criminal elements around the beachfront, drove a team of residents to start a process that will transform Camps Bay.
