To contact the CIBRA committee please Email 

The Committee meet once a month and you should receive a reply to your query after that.

The minutes of CIBRA's Exco meetings are placed at the bottom of this page once confirmed.

PS for those of you too young to know the old joke: A Camel is a Horse designed by a Committee!

After many years of being Chair of CIBRA, Dr. Barry Smith asked to be allowed to step down as he wished to have more time available to pursue his musical interests. The Committee, and we are sure also very many ratepayers and residents, are extremely grateful for all that Dr. Smith has contributed to the community, and we are appreciative of the fact he has agreed to remain as a committee member for some further period.

Our new Ward 77 Councillor introduces himself:

        Brandon Golding - Ward 77

        Mobile: 082 565 0828

I was born and raised in Cape Town. I have lived in the City Bowl for 12 years and have been an active member of the DA for 7 of those years. Besides political activity, I am one of the founder members of the Gardens Neighbourhood Watch and through this involvement have been an active member of The Cape Town Community Policing Forum for about 8 years, having served as both the Chairperson and the Cluster Chairperson, which extended my responsibility from Camps Bay to Langa.

 I have previously worked as a business process engineer and software architect, but will now focus on the role of Ward Councillor.

I believe that active citizenry enables better governance. I therefore encourage all residents to engage with civic structures such as CIBRA so that their voice may be heard and so that the elected public representative may better serve their communities.

Ward Councillor for the new Ward 115

Dave Bryant  Ward 115

Mobile: 071 855 9554  

Dave Bryant was previously our Ward 77 Councillor, and CIBRA will still be liaising with him over heritage matters in the new Ward 115 area. Dave has also stated that he intends to give attention to the problems of homeless people on our streets.
