Welcome to the Woodstock Improvement District (WID)

Woodstock Improvement District provides top-up cleaning and security services to one of Cape Town’s oldest residential and business nodes. If you live or work in Woodstock, you can register suggestions and complaints online through the website. 

Woodstock is a suburb of incredible heritage and we count it as a privilege to be the custodians of this cultural landmark. As much as our primary role is to serve the community in practical ways, we have a heart for the people in this area. Not only those who put back into the suburb through owning properties or businesses but also the people in shelters, along the roadside and those just doing their best to make a living.

Woodstock is vibrant, busy, colourful and full of life – something around every corner. WID is completely committed to ensuring that this remains a place each person can call home in the weeks, months and years to come.

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 then entitled to attend, participate and vote at the member’s 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.
