Isiphingo regeneration moves forward
Isiphingo has emerged cleaner and greener after the Municipality made a concerted effort to spruce up the area on 25 July. 

A multi-disciplinary task force made up of several City units tackled various issues including illegal dumping, illegal business operations, vacant plots of land while enforcing town planning and building regulations. 

The team also cleaned streams and repaired roads and storm water drains. The operation, which aims to address issues of service delivery affecting business owners and residents comes after Deputy Mayor Fawzia Peer visited the area in February as part of a service delivery round table discussion. Councillor Peer had tasked officials to resolve the issues raised and report back to her.

 Musa Mbhele, Acting Deputy City Manager for the Economic Development Cluster said the City aims to address key strategic issues and challenges in the precinct and has taken an integrated approach to service delivery in the area. “This will be sustained over a period of time and we hope to see a difference in a few months. We encourage the community to report illegal activity and do their part in ensuring that the area remains clean.”

“As a secondary Central Business District, Isiphingo is seen as a key economic hub for the City. The key challenges identified in Isiphingo are derelict buildings, chaotic informal trading, congested public transport, lack of enforcement, crime, drugs and poor service delivery,” said Mbhele.

EThekwini Municipality is committed to achieving a renewed and regenerated Isiphingo that functions smoothly and efficiently, free of crime and grime. The Municipality calls on all community members, business and other stakeholders to take ownership of their area and play a role towards achieving this vision by taking pride in their surroundings and ensuring compliance with the various City by-laws.
