Cape Town Partnership manages the Central City Improvement District (CCID), a non-profit organisation that provides complementary services and programmes that make the Central City a cleaner, safer, and more attractive place – conducive for development, investment and growth.
The Partnership hosts the Cape Town Business Areas Network, and is under mandate from the City of Cape Town to create an enabling environment for economic growth and job creation in the Cape Town metropolitan region.
Safety and Security
The CCID security officers, together with the South African Police Services and other law enforcement agencies work in close partnership to ensure that the Central City is safe and secure. Due to this cooperative effort, the crime rate has dropped significantly and many incidents are prevented from happening. The valuable complementary services provided by the CCID security partnership ensure that additional officers are being deployed in the Central City all day, every day.
Quality urban management
The CCID provides a dedicated top-up cleansing service to ensure that the streets and public spaces of the Central City are kept clean at all times. The more than 60 dedicated cleaners ensure that this target is met.
The CCID Social Welfare/Development department consists of two Field Workers and a dedicated Social Welfare Manager. The department focuses on assisting homeless people in the Central City as well as alleviating poverty by supporting skills training and job creation projects. It works in partnership with NGOs and other stakeholders.
The marketing programme focuses on communication with its stakeholders, and promoting the Central City’s offerings to locals and visitors. It also promotes the utilisation of public open spaces and encourages pavement café culture, performance and festivals.
