CCID Overview


Since its establishment in November 2000, the CCID has become an internationally acclaimed model of public-private partnership between property owners and businesses, supported by the City Council. The formation of the CCID was a significant event for Cape Town, because it was the first major city in South Africa to implement a fully constituted, legally bound Improvement District covering the entire core of the Central City.

What is a CID?

A City Improvement District (CID) is a precisely defined geographical area, approved by the City Council in terms of the Municipal Property Rates Act, Section 22 (Special Rates Area) and the CID bylaw – to provide complementary services in that area.

How levies are spent.

To address the stated requirements of property owners, 50% of the CCID’s annual budget is spent on security, approximately 21% on cleansing, 7% on social development and 11% on communications and marketing. The remainder of the budget goes towards operational and administrative costs of the CCID.
