The management of the Groote Schuur Community Improvement District (GSCID) plans to toughen up their stance on fighting crime.

This was revealed at their annual meeting held at Belmont Square Conference Centre on Thursday 23 November.

The GSCID covers areas from Observatory along the Main Road to Newlands train station.

At the meeting a report on the GSCID’s clean financial record was given and members said they were proud that – despite the challenge of criminal elements in the area – the GSCID stuck to its budget and honoured the legacy left by the previous leadership.

Chairperson Gregg Huntingford said: “In our CID crime and grime issues continue to be our focus. We are focused on improving the area for the benefit of our stakeholders. I believe we have been very successful in achieving these outputs. We remain committed to maintaining this solid performance ­tradition.”

He said the GSCID was on a solid financial footing and continued to benefit from the experience of its long-time service providers whilst also enjoying the synergies of their involvement in other special ratings areas. Huntingford said the GSCID, under the guidance of its new general manager, Nina Farrell, had been operating as effectively and efficiently as it ever had. Farrell took from Anthony Davies, who retired earlier this year.

He said they planned to improve the form of communication they used to quickly track crime using advanced technology. “We have also had several well-publicised successes on the social outreach front. Exploring some interesting technological aspects to add to the offering here will be a key focus going forward.”

Farrell said she was pleased with the positive results of the meeting and the relationship between the GSCID and its communities. She thanked everyone who had made it possible for them to achieve a good financial record.
