The City of Cape Town’s Property Management Department says it has identified 15 definite and 53 potential sites in Khayelitsha which could be used for churches, educare centres and other social care purposes.

This is after Cape Town Mayor Dan Plato had a meeting in the area.

Plato’s spokesperson Rulleska Singh says they are nevertheless committed to finding and negotiating a compromise which is in the best interests of the Khayelitsha community

“Sixty eight potential properties are being investigated of which 15 have been found to be appropriately zoned as Institutional II and can, by tender, be made available, either for lease or sale.

“Of these 15 sites, 11 are occupied. The structures on the occupied erven include churches, educare centres, a combination of churches and educare centres, and other structures where the usage cannot be determined,” said Singh.

Singh added that he City will meet the current occupants to determine whether occupation has been authorised by the City, its predecessors or the Provincial Government of the Western Cape.

Those occupants who claim to enjoy authorised occupation will be required to produce the necessary proof to corroborate this.
