MEASURING THE CCID

The Cape Town Central City Improvement District (CCID) was established in 2000 and is funded by property owners to provide complementary urban management services to a specific geographic area. More information on the history and structure of the organisation can be found on their website here.

Unfortunately as the site indicates, little detailed information is provided to property owners in order for them to ascertain if their monthly levy to the CCID is being used effectively. To help fill this information gap, the questions which have been emailed to the LSRA or voiced in various meetings are noted below.

The list will be updated with your feedback and sent to the CCID for feedback in a month. NOTE the list is only preliminary, so if you have any questions that are not included, please email them to info@lsra.co.za and they will be include.
