Community Safety MEC Alan Winde heard Goodwood and Monte Vista residents' frustrations about crime and grime during a walkabout on Friday.
Faizel Petersen, chairman of the Goodwood Ratepayers' Association (GRA), said he had arranged the tour with Mr Winde as he felt not enough was being done to tackle problems in the area.
"We wrote to the Ward 27 and 26 councillors, City law enforcement and the Department of Community Safety. In some cases, our emails, were acknowledged and there was a commitment made to look into these matters, yet the problems are still ongoing," he said.
Mr Petersen said he had showed Mr Winde five hot spots in Goodwood, including the Shoprite precinct between Riebeeck, Spencer and Voortrekker roads.
