Whilst the eviction notices served on the thirty one tenants in Karrims Lane is a legal matter before the court, the Municipality has to be proactive and cater for the housing needs of the evictees and many other families residing there in similar conditions.

Although this is a landlord / tenant situation, the area is basically an informal settlement that needs Municipal intervention said Councillor Reshma Brijraj of the ANC at the Infrastructure and Housing Portfolio Committee Meeting on June 6.

The Human Settlements Manager was tasked to prepare an urgent report on land availability and potential beneficiaries from Karrims Lane and other areas such as Ocean View.
