A CID/SRA (Special Rating Area) is established in terms of strict legislative framework with governance by a Board of Directors who remain liable should this be compromised.  Maladministration and/or negligence can result in a SRA been closed down.


Please note that SRA’s contract their service providers and that the provision of these services do not allow for services / improvements or upgrades rendered on private property.  Services are in respect of a top up service to the Municipal services only in the public arena as clearly stipulated in the SRA By-Law 2012 (Promulgated 20 July 2012 PG 7015; LA 24808), Amended By-Law 2016 (Promulgated 4 March 2016 PG 7578; LA 61065) and Policy document (Paragraph 2.3 of Special Rating Areas Policy 2016/17 – Policy number 21144A).


Individual companies therefore remain responsible for their own on-site security / security services.




At the Annual General Meeting held in November 2016, two Directors resigned (Chris Coxwell from Unicape and founding member Andre’ Knoop).  They are thanked for all their hard work and efforts.  Nominations for Directorship were received and Richard Ayres (Saplings) and Andrew Thomson (Chantec) were appointed.  We thank them for their willingness to serve alongside the other three existing board members, Ausef Raad (Chairperson), Greg Morse (Vice-Chairperson) and Andre’ Cloete (Pen Bev).  All relevant AGM documentation is available on the website together with the minutes of meeting .




Please notify the CID office of crime and incidents as this assists us in identifying hot spot areas and implementing strategies aimed at decreasing crime.  These reports also play a major role in identifying locations for cameras.  4 Static cameras are due to be installed along De La Rey Road shortly as well as one on the corner of Industria Ring and MC Beukes Streets.
