Approval of the Pinelands CID


07 JUNE 2023


Approval of the Pinelands Community Improvement District (CID)

The application for the establishment of the Pinelands Community Improvement District (PLCID) was approved in Council on 25 May 2023. The full application report and minutes are available on our website,

We would like to thank everyone for supporting this initiative to help make Pinelands Safe, Clean & Green. A special thanks to our wonderful group of volunteers who helped mobilise residents through their door-to-door campaign. The support from community organisations and local businesses has been overwhelming and we look forward to working with you. We are also grateful to the previous Pinelands CID steering committee members who initiated this process years ago.

We are now in the process of formerly registering the organisation as a Non-Profit Company (NPC) and preparing RFQ documents for service providers. The team has engaged with other CID’s and will be meeting with community organisations and safety structures based in Pinelands. 

Public Safety will be the priority during the initiation process, and we have engaged with the City’s Metro, Traffic and Law enforcement departments. We were also briefed on the City’s Police Plan proposal that will be published for public participation. Partnering with the Pinelands Community Police Forum and the stakeholders within this forum will be vital to addressing crime. Meetings have been scheduled to acquire the two law enforcement officers that will be assigned to Pinelands. Additional meetings are scheduled for the installation of CCTV cameras, a control room, and a safety app for all residents.

Visible policing plays an important role in crime deterrence. The lack of visible patrols is a concern, and we will aim to assign patrollers to hotspots, work with existing security service providers, street committees and neighbourhood watch groups. 

The team will meet with community organisations to address environmental challenges including, illegal dumping, littering, damage to trees and park equipment and heritage protection. The safety and development of our parks will be prioritised. Our social development team will work closely with the City’s Displaced Persons Unit and NGO’s to implement sustainable programmmes.

We’ll keep you updated with the progress of our registration and meetings. Additional information will be published within the next few weeks.
