Three derelict properties in Wynberg are in a deteriorating state; Residents asked to sign a petition

 Three derelict properties based in Waterloo Green Road in Wynberg are in a deteriorating state, and residents have been asked to get behind a petition aimed at getting the Department of Public Works and Infrastructure (DPWI) to take responsibility for its properties.

On Friday, the DA’s shadow minister of Public Works and Infrastructure, Sello Seithlolo, visited the crumbling heritage buildings.

It was his first stop on a tour of four sites located in Ward 62 that are owned by DPWI. He was escorted by Emile Langenhoven, councillor of Ward 62, who had organised the site visits.

Addressing the group of desperate residents who had gathered in Waterloo Green Road, Seithlolo urged them to draw up and sign a petition so that becomes part of the agenda so that he could assist in making it a priority within the portfolio committee.

In February 2022, the department had shared that the funding for the demolition of two of the three homes had been approved.
