The City of Cape Town has raised its concern regarding vacant private plots that have to be cleaned as they are neglected which poses health risks.

In the 2013/2014 financial year, the City’s Environmental Health Department issued 1 846 compliance notices to private property owners who were found to be in contravention of the City’s Environmental Health By-law.

The City of Cape Town states that the vacant plots has set the city’s health back nearly 2-million-Rand.

Mayoral Committee Member for Health Councillor Siyabulela Mamkeli said we conducted 2000 site visits, cleaned up 642 private property owners.

Mamkeli said these property owners are supposed to take care of their property and that is why we are calling on Communities to help and work with us the City of Cape Town to ensure that these vacant plots are attended to by their owners.

“If not maintained the space will become a playground for illegal activities and great health hazards within communities” Mamkeli added.
