The Hatfield City Improvement District has a small leadership team under the guidance of the CEO Lucas Luckhoff. He is supported by Danie Basson, the Chief Operating Officer and Henriette Vorster, the Relationship Manager, who has more than 13 years’ experience in the CID. The Hatfield CID is a non-profit organisation who is funded by the 26 property owners within the area. The highest level of corporate governance is exercised ensuring that stakeholders have comfort that funds are appropriately used within the operation. The collections, financial and regulatory reporting functions are outsourced to a professional bookkeeper and financial reports are monthly available to the board of directors.
The board of directors embarked on a SPATIAL AND INSTITUTIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND MANAGEMENT FRAMEWORK FOR THE HATFIELD CAMPUS VILLAGE in 2016 which were approved and accepted. In 2015, the directors of the CID realised they had to take a fresh look at the CID, as well as the larger Hatfield Campus Village, specifically at the impact of future development and expansion. The expected growth and expansion might bring about new challenges in terms of safety, movement and the overall management of the area. All in all, new responsibilities, challenges and opportunities have come to the fore for the CID and its members, including the expansion of the CID's boundaries and/or the inclusion of adjacent areas into the CID.
We, the people living, learning and working in Hatfield share a dream...
We dream of a sustainable, responsible and inclusive village, with a well-balanced and well-integrated variety of appropriate businesses, residential clusters, and educational, inspirational and recreational areas, supported by sophisticated infrastructure and services.
We dream of a livable village where diverse cultures, people and communities share and enjoy quality of life and equal opportunities in a safe, healthy and clean environment, with an abundance of pleasant spaces and places, recreational, cultural, educational and social opportunities.
We dream of a community village with strong, inspirational leadership, representative of the diversity of the community, well managed and maintained by exceptional, effective, participatory and responsible management structures and sustained by broad-based partnerships. As part of this dream, we see Hatfield redeveloped, regenerated and rejuvenated into an internationally renowned knowledge hub of excellence, where learners, students, teachers, researchers and workers can flourish in a high-quality, safe and socially just campus environment with state-of-the art offerings.
As a community, we picture Hatfield as a high-quality place-to-be, easily accessible and affordable to visitors, residents and all community members; a place where everyone can move peacefully and comfortably between beautiful urban and cultural spaces and streetscapes that are well integrated and creatively connected.
We believe that this unique area, in years to come, will be transformed into a community of choice and recognised as a fascinating place of harmony, cohesion, justice and collaboration.
We, as proud citizens of South Africa and the City of Tshwane, are inspired by the promise of Hatfield’s transformation into a vibrant, high-performance, mixed-use, mixed-income area that provides a wide range of services and opportunities (24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year), not only to local residents and community members, but also to the larger City of Tshwane and the Gauteng region, and even further afield.

We are also very proud to have a Metro police Bicycle Unit attached to the Hatfield CID.
