Councillor John was given an opportunity to provide feedback on the relocation of residents living on the collapsed sewer (MRA 2 and MRA 3 on the Matters Receiving Attention Schedule – item 15SUB06/02/19).

The below feedback should be seen as feedback to the MRAs.

Councillor John reported as follows:

A meeting was held on 20 November 2018 between stakeholders of Zone 20, Zone 23, Officials as well as Councillors where a Memorandum of Agreement was signed. The Officials was supposed to start on 5 January 2019; however when the team reported on site a number of individuals stopped them from continuing.

A follow up meeting took place on 13 January 2019 where it was agreed that the process to relocate individuals currently residing on the collapsed sewer should continue. The team reported on site but was again stopped.
