  • Johannesburg Inner City Business Plan 10 March 2004 1 Purpose and Timeframe Purpose This is the first Business Plan to be developed for the Inner City of Johannesburg in terms of the Inner City Regeneration Strategy 2003. It serves to locate and synchronise the efforts of all agencies, led by the City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Council (CoJ), who are actively working for the regeneration of the Inner City. These agencies include local, provincial and national government, the private sector, non- governmental organisations, and the organised structures of civil society. The purpose of the Business Plan is to capture the major Inner City development initiatives and programmes in a single document, acknowledged by all agencies. This will encourage improved coordination of efforts and mobilisation of resources, better institutional management and identification of areas for attention. As necessary, the Business Plan will also highlight key current issues to be addressed in the process of its implementation. Timeframe The Business Plan covers the period 1 July 2004 to 30 June 2007, and is synchronised with the local authority financial year of the CoJ. The programmes and activities will be reviewed and adjusted annually in May each year to accommodate new projects that emerge over the next three years. Mayoral Priorities Jointly and severally, the programmes and institutional arrangements reflected in the Inner City Business Plan are aligned with the Mayoral medium term priorities. These are: • Economic development and job creation • Public safety • Service delivery excellence, customer care and Batho Pele • Good governance • Inner city regeneration • HIV/AIDS 3
  • Johannesburg Inner City Business Plan 10 March 2004 2 The Inner City Geographical Area The Inner City forms part of the Region 8 administrative area of the CoJ. It comprises the City Centre or Central Business District (CBD); the office satellite centre of Braamfontein; the lower density, predominantly residential suburbs to the east of the City Centre of Yeoville, Bertrams, Troyeville and Jeppestown; the higher density residential areas of Berea and Hillbrow; City Deep; and with Newtown, Fordsburg, Pageview and Vrededorp to the west. The extent of the Inner City, as approved by the Inner City Portfolio Committee, is shown on the next page. 4

  • Johannesburg Inner City Business Plan 10 March 2004 An Area of Change and Transition Historically, the CBD served as the primary centre of commerce and retail, with specialised sectors of legal services, medicine, education, hotels. The CBD fringe had a light manufacturing component. Change began in the late 1970s with the suburbanisation of retail and commerce. Through the 1980s and early 1990s this was exacerbated by poor urban management, increasing population pressure, informalisation, and deregulation. The manifestation of this in bad buildings, increase in slums, increase in crime and shoddy urban environment propelled disinvestment and flight to the suburbs. CoJ, Gauteng and private sector (via CJP) have made major efforts to stabilise the area, improve the environment, and maintain and increase investment levels. These efforts must continue in the future in a coordinated and determined fashion. The Current Significance of the Inner City for Johannesburg The Inner City of Johannesburg has key strategic significance for the city as a whole. This is evident from the following indicators  transport hub – it is the most important transport hub for the city’s users of public transport;  Infrastructure – historically the Inner City was the focus of intensive infrastructure investment by the public sector;  daily commuters – the daily flows of commuters in the Inner City, especially pedestrians and users of public transport, are exceptionally high, averaging 800 000 people per day;  office and residential investment – historically the Inner City was the focus on intensive investment by both the public and private sectors in office and, to a lesser extent, residential development – currently it represents more than double the A & B grade office space area of the next biggest office node, Sandton;;  contribution to GGP – Region 8, the bulk of which is occupied by the Inner City makes the single biggest contribution to the City’s economy of all 11 administrative regions;  residential population – the Inner City houses a significant proportion of the City’s population, at least 200 000 people, mainly in high density buildings;  corporate headquarters – the Inner City remains the corporate headquarters for some of the country’s largest corporations;  location of provincial & local government – the Gauteng Provincial and Johannesburg Metropolitan governments are based in the Inner City;  retail service centre for the south – the Inner City provides significant retail opportunities for the residents of the southern part of the city, especially those without access to private transport;  incubator and entry point for SMMEs – the Inner City is increasingly providing space for SMMEs to establish themselves and to grow; and  cultural assets – the Inner City houses Johannesburg’s major educational, artistic and sporting institutions and venues. 6
  • Johannesburg Inner City Business Plan 10 March 2004 Problems and challenges The current city council, elected in 2000, inherited a persistent set of problems and challenges in the Inner City. Since their election the council has made significant progress in addressing these challenges. Already there are clear signals that the process of turning around the Inner City has gathered considerable momentum as a result of this council’s efforts, even in the relatively short time period. However, a fundamental element of good governance is ensuring that efforts are constantly monitored, in order to improve performance where required. The problems and challenges set out below are those that still remain critical. Addressing these problems is part of a lengthy process: none of them is likely to be addressed by an instant solution, but rather by the steady application of capacity, resources and political will over a period extending well beyond that of this Business Plan. Council-led responses to date include: • CoJ and Gauteng have made major investments and intensified efforts to revive the area and manage the environment • Inner City Task Force established, with considerable success in by-law enforcement and closing down crime-ridden buildings • Improved co-ordination of agencies active in the Inner City, including the Council’s Region 8 Office, the Johannesburg Development Agency (JDA), the Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department (JMPD), Blue IQ, the Metropolitan Trading Company (MTC), Johannesburg Property Company (JPC), Pikitup, Johannesburg City Parks (JCP), other Utilities/Agencies/Corporatised Entities (UACs) and the Central Johannesburg Partnership (CJP) • Commencement of regenerating Special Activity Precincts • Upgrading most Inner City parks • Closer working relations with Inner City property owners and managers • Renewed attention to maintaining infrastructure There are continuing areas of concern. While Inner City crime statistics are showing a reduction in many categories, levels are still high and require unremitting attention. Large areas of the built stock are affected by urban blight, characterised by the existence of ‘bad buildings’, overcrowding and illegal conversions, unmanaged informal trading and a degraded public environment. These aspects are exacerbated by a complex nexus of external factors, including market perceptions, risk-aversion and red- lining. Understanding this complexity is the key to making productive interventions, and more attention needs to be paid to gathering and acting on market intelligence. In addition, parts of the Inner City are characterised by serious social problems associated with economic decline and poverty. These are manifest in homelessness, drug and alcohol abuse, prostitution and the like. In addition, there is the pervasive impact of HIV/AIDS throughout all social and economic sectors. 7
  • Johannesburg Inner City Business Plan 10 March 2004 The Need for Inner City Regeneration The strategic importance of the Inner City to the development of Johannesburg as a world-class African city in the context of increasing global connectivity cannot be understated. Put simply, it is a major productive economic asset that provides a major contribution to the city’s gross geographic product of R 116 billion, which in turn represents 11% of the South African domestic product. It is estimated that Region 8, the greater part of which is the Inner City, contributes roughly 23% to Johannesburg’s gross geographic product, which is the largest contribution of any region. The importance of the Inner City to the economic well-being of Johannesburg is therefore a leading concern of the CoJ and is reflected in the Mayor’s selection of Inner City Regeneration as a Mayoral Priority for his current term of office. The next closest region to Region 8 in terms of overall contribution to the city’s economy is Region 3 (Sandton/Randburg) with roughly 21%, followed by Region 2 (Midrand/Ivory Park) with 13% and Region 4 (Rosebank/Northcliff) with 10% (Urban Econ’s Inner City Economic Activity Analysis, 2003). Maintaining and developing this economic potential must be accompanied by addressing the social conditions leading to urban blight, increasing the intensity of urban management and redressing shortfalls in service delivery and physical infrastructure. These actions help create the setting to enable and support investment, which must be: • Competitive, with fair conditions for the operation of the market; • Understandable, which requires clarity of intentions and transparency of purpose; • Predictable, which demands that actions are consistent and dependable, and that decisions are followed through 8
  • Johannesburg Inner City Business Plan 10 March 2004 3 Realising the vision for the Inner City The Vision for the Inner City was launched by President Thabo Mbeki (then Deputy President) in July 1997, following an intensive process involving provincial and local government, the private sector, community and organised labour. The Vision: The Golden Heartbeat of Africa • A dynamic city that works… • Liveable, safe, well-managed and welcoming • People-centred, accessible and celebrating cultural diversity • A vibrant 24-hour city • A city for residents, workers, tourist, entrepreneurs and learners • Focused on the 21st Century • Respecting its heritage and capitalising on its position in South Africa, Africa and the whole world • A truly global city • The trading hub of Africa, thriving through participation, partnerships and the spirit of Ubuntu. No one element of this Vision can be realized without significant economic progress in the Inner City. Currently, the CoJ and its partners expend much time and energy in reactive efforts. With sustained economic growth in the Inner City they will be able to build on the present solid foundations to sustain a more strategically positive process of regeneration and redevelopment. Taking into account the importance of economic development as a precondition for realising the Vision, the CoJ recently formulated a Strategic Framework and rationale for development of the Inner City. The Strategic Framework The CoJ has developed a strategic framework and rationale for development of the Inner City over recent years. • Executive Mayoral Priority – for term of office, 2000-2005 • Inner City Regeneration Strategy 2003 (The ‘5 Pillar Strategy’: Raise private investment/property values through 1 addressing sinkholes, 2 creating ripple pond investments, 3 support to economic sectors, 4 intensive urban management and 5 maintaining/upgrading infrastructure) 9
  • Johannesburg Inner City Business Plan 10 March 2004 Raise & sustain private investment leading to steady rise in property values Intensive Maintain/ urban upgrade Support Address infra- Ripple-pond manage- economic sinkholes structure investments ment sectors These are based on: • Vision for the Inner City (1997) − (Golden Heartbeat of Africa etc) • Economic Development Framework of Greater Johannesburg (1999) − (Golden Triangle of Central Core-JIA-Midrand) • Inner City Spatial Framework (1999) − (12 Parallel Strategies) • Inner City Economic Development Framework 1999 − (12 Parallel Strategies) • City Centre Development Framework 2000 − (Precinct development) • Local Integrated Development Plan (2001) – incorporated into Regional Spatial Development Framework • Inner City Urban Renewal Strategy (Inner City Task Force) 2001 − (Getting basics right, Inner City Task Force, Crime Reduction, Informal Trade Management, Taxi Management, By-law enforcement, Service Delivery co- ordination, Revenue collection) • Johannesburg 2030 2002 − (Crime prevention, Skills development, Spatial planning, Utilities, Telecoms, Transport, Information systems, Sectoral development, Catalyst Projects, SMEs & Linkages, shrinking the office core of the Inner City) • Integrated Transport Plan (2003) 10
  • Johannesburg Inner City Business Plan 10 March 2004 4 Goal and Objectives The Inner City Regeneration Strategy was approved by the CoJ Mayoral Committee on 27 February 2003, and encompasses the goal, objectives, programmes and activities set out in the following sections. 4.1 Goal The Goal of the regeneration effort in the Inner City is to: Raise and sustain private investment leading to a steady rise in property values 4.2 Objectives The main objectives necessary to achieve this goal are to: • Address Sinkholes Sinkholes are: − Properties that are slummed, abandoned, overcrowded, poorly maintained, often owned and neglected by the public sector − Properties used for illegal or unsuitable purposes (shebeens and clubs in incorrect places, prostitution, drugs, sweatshops, panel beaters in residential areas etc) Sinkholes ‘pull down’ adjacent properties and city blocks by creating disincentives to private investment and blocking sales, and can spread to include whole neighbourhoods. The sinkhole syndrome is exacerbated by red-lining, poor urban management, poor credit control and badly managed sectional title. • Undertake Intensive Urban Management Intensive urban management involves focusing efforts to ensure effective by-law enforcement, management of informal trading, regular or improved delivery of services and utilities, and maintenance of the public realm. Private examples include the City Improvement District programme and CCTV surveillance, while public-led efforts include the work of the Inner City Task Force. • Maintain and upgrade infrastructure This objective relates primarily to the maintenance and improvement of service delivery infrastructure, including roads, street signs and robots, water, sanitation and power networks, and waste collection points. It is primarily a function of the CoJ’s utility companies. 11
  • Johannesburg Inner City Business Plan 10 March 2004 • Promote Ripple-pond investments Ripple-ponds are catalytic, concerted investments in property that create confidence for further investment in adjacent areas. Either public, private or a combination, examples include Braamfontein, Metro Mall, Constitution Hill and Newtown Cultural Precinct. A crucial requirement to make a ripple-pond investment effective is the support by the CoJ and its partners to ensure that the environment immediately surrounding the investment is especially well managed. Failing to do this may well negate the value of the initial investment. • Support Economic Sectors This entails careful assessment of those areas of economic activity that are of current or potential importance to the gross geographic product of the Inner City, followed by the design and implementation of carefully crafted interventions to promote and assist their growth. These actions are most usually a combination of public and private initiatives (for example the ‘Open for Business’ support centre for SMMEs or the Fashion District) 12

  • Johannesburg Inner City Business Plan 10 March 2004 6 Agencies in Inner City Regeneration Clearly the strategic framework for development in the Inner City is in place, and reflects a thorough analysis of problems, challenges and necessary actions.

  • Johannesburg Inner City Business Plan 10 March 2004 7 Institutional Arrangements The institutional arrangements within the CoJ are designed to maximise participation from the variety of agencies active in regeneration of the Inner City, while ensuring a close connection to the decision-making structures of the council. 7.1 Policy, Oversight and Decision-making Structures Mayoral Committee This structure comprises CoJ Councillors, and receives reports and recommendations for decision from the Inner City Portfolio Committee (Section 80) Inner City Portfolio Committee (Section 80) This structure comprises CoJ Councillors, and has the key objectives to: • To promote the realisation of the Vision for the Inner City of Johannesburg • To develop, and monitor the implementation of, appropriate policies, strategies, programmes and projects for the economic and social development of the inner city • To promote and market the inner City of Johannesburg The Inner City Committee has decision-making powers within clearly defined delegations (See Annexe for Terms of Reference) Inner City Advisory Committee (Section 79) The Inner City Advisory Committee shares the same objectives as the Inner City Committee, and has the following membership: • The Member of the Mayoral Committee responsible for the Inner City; • Relevant Ward Councillors and PR Councillors with responsibility for the Inner City; • The Johannesburg Inner City Business Coalition; • The Johannesburg Inner City Community Forum; • Representatives from the Council’s utilities and agencies, the Metropolitan Trading Company (Pty) Ltd and the Johannesburg Development Agency (Pty) Ltd; • Representatives from the Association of Social Housing Organisations and other relevant NGOs such as the Property Owners and Managing Agents Association • Representatives of Provincial Government; and, • Representatives of the Provincial Legislature • Higher education institutions The Inner City Advisory Committee has powers to advise on issues and make recommendations to the Inner City Committee for consideration (See Annexure for Terms of Reference). 32

  • Johannesburg Inner City Business Plan 10 March 2004 8 Institutional Alignment and Resources 8.1 Responsibilities in relation to the Five Pillars Given the complexity and dynamic nature of the social, economic and physical fabric of the Inner City, and the multiplicity of agencies involved in its regeneration, it is necessary to strengthen institutional alignment against delivery responsibilities. The responsibility as lead implementing agency for each of the Five Pillars of the Inner City Regeneration Strategy is as follows: Pillar 1 Address sinkholes: CoJ Region 8 Administration Pillar 2 Undertake intensive urban management: CoJ Region 8 Administration Pillar 3 Maintain & upgrade infrastructure: CoJ Region 8 Administration Pillar 4 Promote ripple-pond investments: Johannesburg Development Agency Pillar 5 Support economic sectors: CoJ Economic Development Unit The Business Plan reflects a significant expansion of efforts necessary to continue implementation of the Inner City Regeneration Strategy. In turn, this leads to the quantification of the further capacity requirements needed by the Region 8 Office, the Inner City Task Force, EDU and JDA to implement these activities 8.2 Region 8 Office The importance of ensuring effective urban management as a parallel initiative to development efforts is recognised in terms of this business plan. Like it’s counterparts in other regions, the CoJ Central Region (Region 8) Office is the administrative hub of the council’s service delivery in its areas of jurisdiction. The Region 8 Office has a total staff complement of 540 for its regional functions structured as shown in the organogram below.

  • Johannesburg Inner City Business Plan 10 March 2004 which currently consists solely of the Regional Manager and a secretary, supported by staff seconded from time-to-time on a by project-by-project basis. These staff secondments form the Inner City Task Force. This level of human and institutional resources in the Region 8 Office is currently inadequate for the increasing role and responsibility necessary to deliver the Inner City Regeneration Strategy. The Inner City Office currently and will continue to play a critical role in implementing activities under the designated pillars and providing the essential support and underpinning to the developmental programmes involved in promoting ripple ponds and supporting economic sectors. The capacity requirements to fulfil these objectives are set out below in the organisation structure, as proposed by Region 8, and financial resources deemed necessary. The staffing compliment indicated is proposed to be appointed on a three year fixed term contract basis. The proposed structure provides a starting point for negotiations with the Budget Office and its finalisation is dependent on available human resources and/or budget availability.
