Following requests from property owners the Wynberg Improvement District (WID) has proposed to extend its boundary which would make its operation more efficient and effective.

According to WID manager Athol Swanson the proposed extention forms part of the WID’s five-year plan up to 2020.

Swanson says this business plan extends the services to the CBD properties and continues south from York and Wilson roads to Constantia Road and includes properties along Main Road as well as those along Lester Road between Park and Rockley roads.

More defined boundary“This extended area would give the WID a more defined boundary (the whole of Wynberg Main Road),” he says.

Swanson says the current operation and top-up service will be extended to this proposed area at the same additional rate as the approved commercial rate for the existing area.

“Although the business plan continues to focus primarily on cleaning and security, these are crucial to the area where there are about 100 000 people moving through the interchange area daily to their places of work, residence or social activity.

“Wynberg also has the regional court and home affairs. It is therefore critical that visible policing, patrolling and on-going cleaning of public areas are maintained,” he says.

Going forwardSwanson says with the proposal the WID will continue to assist with revitalisation, promotion and urban management.

It also provides an environment that is safe and clean.

It offers visitors and the Wynberg community a pleasant shopping, working and living experience by topping up the municipal services provided by the City
