The infrastructure may include anything from playgrounds, kindergartens, and swimming pools to tennis and golf courts and club houses. Thus a secured apartment building is a gated community if it is fenced off and equipped with a common infrastructure.

44 J. Plöger The proliferation of informal practices – including those used to appropriate residential areas – can be interpreted in this context. The marginal influence of local authorities on shaping and regulating space is also evident in districts where the administrations do not actively enforce regulations, such as ordinance 690, to avoid confronting residents with this contested issue. In the realm of security, it can be argued that the insufficient service provision by the State has caused a ‘protection gap’.

The life behind walls in gated neighbourhoods removes these elites even further from the social reality of their ‘home’ society. Yet, neither the Latin American media (press and broadcasting), nor politicians, urban planners, or architects have interpreted the gates as a severe problem for society in the past 2 decades.
