DO THE MEANS DEFEAT THE ENDS? Impact of legislation on Gauteng’s enclosed neighbourhoods
Gauteng has most of the country’s enclosed neighbourhoods. The province is also ahead in its enactment of policy and legislation to regulate the restriction of access to public spaces for safety purposes. The goals of many residents are however likely to conflict with the legal provisions. For example, the legislation and policy provide that private security personnel at booms only monitor and observe activity. They may not search vehicles or people, or require registers to be completed, or request personal information from visitors to the area.
