A briefing will be held for Greenmarket Square informal traders from 10 until 11 in the morning on Friday the 23 November 2007 at the City Hall.
Details of the upcoming upgrade will be discussed a landscape architect from the City’s Spatial Planning Department.
“The City has also extended the deadline for the traders to register their current status on the City’s database from the 19 November to the close of business on 21 November 2007. To date, 200 applications have been received for trading permits,” says the City of Cape Town’s Simon Grindrod.
The City has terminated Badih Chabaan’s lease, as he was the previously administrator Greenmarket square.
From the 1 December, the city will resume possession and control of the property and the management of that section of the informal trading market previously controlled by Chabaan.
Badih Chaaban was unavailable for comment.
