Welcome to the Groote Schuur Community Improvement District (GSCID)

The GSCID in partnership with UCT, commercial and educational institutions in the area, aims to create a safer, cleaner and rejuvenated environment for all by providing ‘top up’ services to those provided by the City of Cape Town (CCT).

UCT proposes to partner with commercial and educational institutions situated in this area ([download id=”3″ format=”3″] to view map) to establish and provide the initial funding towards the formation of the GSCID.

  • “Membership is open to all commercial property owners who are encouraged to apply for membership so that they exercise their rights to influence the business of the CID. Membership cannot be denied and the property owner is entitled to attend, participate and vote at the Company meetings held under the auspices of the Companies Act. Should a member be unable to attend they may give another individual their proxy to attend and vote on their behalf. Non-members may attend and participate but cannot vote and as such may thus have limited influence on the CID activities.”
