Temporary reprieve for Bromwell residents

Residents in Bromwell Street have thanked the City of Cape Town and The Woodstock Hub developers for extending the eviction date of occupants.

Tenants were initially ordered to vacate their homes by today but can now remain in their homes for at least another two weeks following an an intervention from the City.

Knowing that we're not going to be out on the street today, with no homes, it's a big relief to all the tenants.

Charnell Commando, Bromwell Street tenant leader

Talks are ongoing between the evictees, The Hub and the City to seek possible solutions and alternative housing.

The eviction date has been moved to September 26, explains Bromwell Street tenant leader Charnell Commando.

We are still discussing the proposal that the City came to us with. Nothing has been decided or finalised.
