About Us

The Board of Directors of Parow Industria Improvement District Association (CID) NPC are:

Parow Industria Improvement District Association has been operating since 1 August 2001 , providing a “top up” supplementary security and cleansing service. Funds are obtained from a Levy which is paid by all landowners. The City Improvement District (CID) NPC model is based on an international practice that is aimed at preventing degeneration of cities and industrial areas with subsequent urban decay. This model facilitates upliftment, economic growth and sustainable development.
We continuously strive towards building confidence in the area as a safe, attractive and clean environment in which to conduct business by providing effective response to the high levels of crime and grime which previously existed in the area.
Special attention is paid to our core responsibilities:
  • To supplement and enhance basic services provided by the City of Cape Town
  • To facilitate investment in the area
  • To facilitate a co-operative approach between the City and private sector in the provision of municipal services
  • To halt degeneration and facilitate upliftment of the industrial area
  • To promote economic growth and sustainable development
  • To facilitate new job creation activities.
Crime has decreased and is largely due to the presence of 24 hour patrols in two vehicles and a camera surveillance system monitoring the area.
The patrol vehicles can be reached on 079 572 5662 / 3.
The CID control room and camera monitoring: (021) 932-4800 / 072 197 5001.
Grime in the industrial area is addressed under the banner of our “Dare to Dream Campaign for Parow Industria” which is aimed at creating a “waste wise” community where industrialists, residents and schools all play their part in re-cycling, minimising and re-using waste:-
  • List your available waste types on the website www.capetown.gov.za/iwex
  • Re-cycling project for paper, cardboard, glass, tins and plastic where proceeds are channelled to a local school.
  • Contact the CID Manager or Frederick Buhr from Top Scrap Metals (021) 932-3082 for more information.
