STREET by street, suburb by suburb, Durban residents are reclaiming their neighbourhoods in a fight back against crime and filth.

The Witness has previously reported how Glenwood and Kloof communities have rallied together through the of use of social networks, free messaging services and community patrols while businesses in the city centre, Umhlanga Rocks and Florida Road are one of many areas that have implemented Urban Improvement Precincts (UIP) that pay an additional monthly rate. This pays to keep the streets clean, public gardens maintained, for security and a structure that can demand council delivers on its mandate such as kerb, street and light maintenance. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
