As is the case with many other industrial areas in and around Cape Town, the Stikland Industrial area also experience issues of crime and grime, homelessness and associated negative impacts.  In many areas these issues are escalating at an alarming rate.  A group of property owners and members of the community has taken the initiative to seek solutions to these issues and have initiated the process of applying for and establishing a Special Ratings Area (SRA).  Your participation and support in establishing this SRA, will not only be greatly appreciated, it will also lead to significant upgrading of the public urban environment of your property.

 

What is a Special Ratings Area (SRA)?

  • A statutory body established under the SRA by-law of the City of Cape Town previously known as a City Improvement District (CID).
  • The SRA is funded by way of a levy s collected from rate payers by the City of Cape Town and paid to the management board of the proposed Stikland Industrial SRA
  • The funds raised are dedicated to improving services within the Stikland Industrial area  such as security, cleansing and other urban upgrade initiatives.

Why do we need the SRA?

  • It will reduce crime, grime and homelessness
  • It will provide a safer, cleaner and friendlier public environment
  • Public space will be upgraded
  • Property values tend to increase within SRA’s

How does it work?

  • Provides ‘top up’ services to those provided by the City
  • The levies may only be used for services stipulated in the business plan as agreed to by property owners in the area at a public meeting.
  • An SRA provides property owners with a direct say in the management of the public space.


We will soon undertake a perception survey to test the feasibility of establishing a City Improvement District in the Stikland Industrial area. At this stage all we ask of you is to please take 10 minutes of your time to complete this questionnaire when our fieldworker visits you property.  Once we have captured the data and done an analysis, we will have a better understanding of perceptions of Stikland Industrial community.
