After months of hard work to gain support and submit an application to the City of Cape Town for establishment, the Strand Business Improvement District (SBID) will take its first few steps on 15 October 2014. The City of Cape Town approved the SBID application on the 29th of May 2014. Given this approval the SBID had to comply with a number of administrative requirements in order to become operational.
