Register to participate in the Woodstock/Salt River Local Spatial Development Framework<span> <h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​About​​​​​​​</h2></span> <p> Woodstock and Salt River are neighbourhoods that have experienced significant change over the past number of years. A trend which is likely to continue, particularly taking into account amongst others the plans for future social housing developments which could result in an increase of 4000 families in the area. As a result of this, a commitment was made to in the Woodstock and Salt River affordable housing Prospectus to initiate a broader process of precinct development in the area. </p><p>The Woodstock/ Salt River Local Spatial Development Framework is an intervention, which aims to revitalise the areas of Woodstock and Salt River and make it a place where people want to live and invest long-term. This initiative comes as a response to a growing desire among residents and business owners to see the areas reach its full potential.<br></p> <span> <div class="notification with-heading dark-copy light-blue bg-light-grey"><div class="graphic with-border"> <i class="info fastfact">​​</i></div><div class="desc"><h4>WHAT IS THE WID?</h4><p> Woodstock Improvement District (WID) provides top-up cleaning and security services to one of Cape Town’s oldest residential and business nodes. In the early 2000s several local business leaders became increasingly concerned about the signs of urban decay in the Woodstock area. The safety of employees travelling between transport hubs and places of employment was also an issue. <br> <br>For this reason, the Woodstock Upliftment Project was established which subsequently led to the establishment of a Business Forum. The Forum’s main focus areas were security, cleaning and greening. With the support and input from City Council, the Woodstock Improvement District was established in May 2005.</p></div></div></span> <p>In cooperation with its partners (City of Cape Town, SAPS, property and business owners) WID has made, and continues to make, a constructive contribution to making Woodstock a desirable place to live, work and play.</p><h4>What are the core responsibilities of WID?</h4><ul><li>To supplement and enhance the basic services offered by the City of Cape Town. </li><li>To facilitate a cooperative approach between the City and private sector in the provision of municipal services. </li><li>To coordinate the provision of a well-maintained, safer, cleaner and greener environment in Woodstock. </li><li>To exhibit Woodstock as a prime location and preserve its district identity.</li></ul><h4>The Woodstock/ Salt River LSDF aims to:</h4><ul><li>guide spatial development and land use management decisions within a designated local area; </li><li>inform public and private investment initiatives by clearly indicating the City’s future development vision; </li><li>formulate a vision for the desired end state of the area (how we would like it to be); </li><li>provide policies and guidelines for decision making and actions to achieve the desired end state; </li><li>develop and promote the tourism industry as a key driver to stimulate sustainable economic growth; </li><li>promote regional strategies, partnerships, and solutions to strengthen the local economy; and </li><li>promote the area as a high quality tourist destination where different functions co-exist.</li></ul> <span> <div class="notification with-heading dark-copy pink bg-light-grey"><div class="graphic with-border"> <i class="info note">​​​</i> </div><div class="desc"><h4>Please note</h4><p> LSDFs do not replace the existing legal requirements for land use planning and environmental regulations, and only become effective once approved by Council.<br></p></div></div></span><span> <h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​Public meeting​​​​​​​</h2></span> <p>We will present this initiative to the public during consultation and engagement sessions, where it will be discussed in depth.
