Neil Fraser, Chairman of the GSCID, welcomed guests to the GSCID Report Back Function (RBF) and spoke of how CIDs came into being in South Africa and his involvement with the formation of the very first CID in Johannesburg.

GSCID CEO, Anthony Davies, reported on the activities and operations of the GSCID over the past year.

Alderman Owen Kinahan sketched the background to GSCID and the desire to build the brand and give better value to stakeholders.  In his address, Kinahan referred to research and proposals which had been conducted and considered over the years, including the 25 year old Rondebosch Mowbray Local Area Plan, a proposal for the Mowbray CBD by MCA commissioned 10 years ago, and various ideas and proposals by special interest groups including Civic Associations.

In addition Kinahan made reference to UCT’s master integrated strategic plan which is well advanced. “There is a well-motivated and documented plan for the heritage and sporting precinct in Newlands, as well as a City plan addressing the major Main Road municipal public facilities in Ward 57,” said Kinahan.

“GSCID is the perfect vehicle for facilitating and driving these plans forward,” he added.
