u-turn 25 birthday

Capetonians have less than a month to have their say on a plan to create a “safe space” for the homeless in Green Point.

If given the go-ahead, the project will provide some 300 beds under the fly-over bridge on the suburb’s Ebenezer Road, near the V&A Waterfront precinct.

A similar setup already exists at Culemborg in the City Centre.

While the metro said it was putting millions aside to assist the homeless, earlier in 2023, the courts granted the city a handful of eviction notices to remove the homeless from the streets in parts of the metropole. – Graeme Raubenheimer, EWN (Eye Witness News)
