The City of Cape Town wants to boost two of the city centre's most iconic sites.
The City has allocated R1.4 million for research into how to revitalise Greenmarket Square and St George’s Mall over the next two years.
Ward Councillor in the city bowl, Dave Bryant says the research will look into improving the management of the two landmarks.
Bryant explains that research partnership with the Central City Improvement District (CCID) will see the implementation of a long-term management plan for the sites, relevant to other other public spaces in the metro.
He advises that the strategy will look at how to maximise economic opportunities for traders, and resolve issues such as drug-dealing, aggressive begging and accessible ablution facilities.
