A City Improvement District is a Special Rating Area initiated by businesses and/or residents in a particular area to ‘top up’ services provided by the City Council. The City will charge a SRA levy over and above the normal rates charges, payable by all ratepayers in the area. Among the extra services provided by a CID are security and cleansing.

“Membership is open to all the 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.”
