What HEC does:

In addition to focusing on safety, security and environmental issues, the HEC works to bring a greater awareness of community spirit among Green Point residents through the dissemination of positive messages.

  • Encourages neighbours to share concerns, raises issues and coordinates action to instil pride in Green Point
  • Shares contact information with neighbours so as to get connected
  • Speaks to media for more positive stories about the neighbourhood to dilute negative messages but continues to fight the negative issues such as crime  
  • Encourage residents to lobby the City to improve service delivery by lodging C3s through the e-Service website https://www.capetown.gov.za/en/ServiceRequests/Pages/default.aspx
