Meeting to discuss proposed homeless shelter in Randburg 11 Aug, Blairgowrie Recreation Centre

We have all seen the informal housing in the George Lea park. This is not new, but it is now on display that the area has been cleared of alien vegetation. Following months of negotiations the Parkmore residents have come up with a plan together with the Sandton Sports Club, the City and Discovery to fence this area, move the current informal residents and make the area a safe place for outdoor activity.

We can expect big changes in the next few months. Of course this also means that the current residents of the Park are likely to simply take up residence further south along the Spruit in our area unless alternative accommodation can be found for them. A public meeting is taking place on Thursday 11 August 2016 to discuss the possibility of a shelter for the homeless in Randburg.
