Protests erupted in Pelican Park on Thursday as more than 300 residents from Bhekela informal settlement and Phumlani Village set tyres alight and barricaded Strandfontein Road.
The community is angry over a lack of housing and that the area is infested with rats and have no adequate sewage and waste removal.
Mini-mayor Eddie Andrews says he will be visiting the area to see and address some of these concerns from the community.
Andrews says janitorial services are there 7 days a week but the community wants people in the area to be employed.
He says he will be engaging the community about that and other grievances.
He condemned what he calls criminal behaviour of looting and burning premises.
