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.— Charnell Commando, Bromwell Street tenant leader
