Good news for Hangberg

Taken from

The Hout Bay Civic Association on Tuesday said mediation efforts around the Hangberg eviction saga are proceeding well.

An independent mediator has been appointed to oversee the process.

The City of Cape Town, SANParks, the Hangberg community and the civic association agreed to enter into talks, rather than follow through with court action in a bid to defuse tensions.

Violence erupted in September 2010 after city officials took down shacks built in a fire break on the slopes of the Sentinel.

The civic association’s Greg Louw said they are currently in the process of introducing proper representation for the community, but he refused to name the mediator.
