The city’s plan to house homeless people in Strandfontein as part of its winter readiness plan was denied by the Ratepayers and Resident’s association. The association said the only learned of the plans on Tuesday as there was no consultations with the directly aaffected comunities

The association’s chairperson Mario Oostendurp in principle it was a good initiative; however, in its previous 2020 homeless camp initiative, there had been no transparent or truthful in its dealings with community organisations, the homeless people in that area where no accommodated.

Mayco member for community services and health Zahid Badroodien said the City wasn't opening a shelter but as part of the winter readiness programme approved an application for additional resource support by the Haven Night Shelter to open up additional temporary shelter space, making use of a church facility in the area.
