NEW TENT RESIDENTS DURBANVILLE
#7Tent town is getting bigger and nothing is done about it.
Ané Van Niekerk (Durbanville , 2022-07-14)
#14I am a resident in the area and has been negatively affected by this tented community.
Sonja Janse van Rensburg (Durbanville, 2022-07-14)
#17The tent town is a health hazard and a security risk to the nearby primary school and other nearby houses and businesses
Phillip Hechter (Durbanville, 2022-07-14)
#18This eye sore has to be taken care of and these people need better facilities.
Hoffie Hofmeyr (Durbanville, 2022-07-14)
#20I'm signing because it is a huge health hazard to have humans defecate and make fires in the centre of our town right opposite our primary school and next to our church
Crime in the area adjacent to the park has escalated dramatically in recent weeks
Rosie Frouws (Durbanville , 2022-07-14)
#22The growing informal settlement in the middle of a residential area where residents pay high rates and taxes is unacceptable.
There are no ablution facilities and children attending the neighbouring school have to frequently see grown adults changing, defecating etc in full view of the public.
Crime is on the rise.
Passers by frequently have items thrown at them and/or are intimidated.
Victoria Thompson (Valmary Park, 2022-07-14)
#23We need to help the people with safe accommodations and remove the tents
Venter Venter (Durbanville, 2022-07-14)
#27I live there and its dangerous, driving down property value and there has been a marked increase in crime since this started
Natalie M (Cape Town, 2022-07-14)
#28My property is my biggest investment. Having a squatter camp on the main road into my suburb, detracts from my property value. If the City Council is OK with my property losing value, then they must reduce the rates that I pay every month.
Kim Heptinstall (Durbanville , 2022-07-14)
#29This cannot be allowed to continue in our lovely Durbanville!
Chrismari Hoepfner (Durbanville, 2022-07-14)
#34This is ridiculous and must be stopped right away.
Neil Marsden (Cape Town, 2022-07-14)
#35We urgently need to address the homeless problems oir communities are facing.
Kevin Kiewitz (Durbanville, Bellville, 2022-07-14)
#37I live in Durbanville and drive past it everyday
Lélan de Jongh (Cape town, 2022-07-14)
#41I agree with the contents of the petitioni to expedite actions against the tent residents.
Johannes Bruwer (Durbanville, 2022-07-14)
#42This cannot be allowed!! Action is required to stop it!!
Caren van Staden (Durbanville , 2022-07-14)
#44I stay in Sonstraal, my kids go to Durbanville and I am fearing for their safety
Christoff Lottering (Cape Town, 2022-07-14)
#48As a resident of Durbanville being taxed to death, COCT is more concerned with a clean audit than implementing housing projects for the indigent. The city has numerous tracts of land which could be developed but its own departments block/delay the processes
Ann Thomas (Cape Town, 2022-07-14)
#53M vd Vyver
Marlize Van der Vyver (Durbanville, 2022-07-14)
#57Tent city is growing so rapidly I worry it will soon turn into a similar situation as Du Noon.
Desirè Van Rooyen (Cape Town, 2022-07-14)
#59Business owner is Durbanville
Paul Louw (Durbanville , 2022-07-14)
#61I live there and would love to enjoy the field with my son playing soccer
Nina Nosworthy (Durbanville , 2022-07-14)
#63This is unsafe, not what we want to expose our kids to.
Karin Cowdrey (Cape Town , 2022-07-14)
#70We cannot allow further deterioration of our urban space - which will reduce property values. As taxpayers we have every right to demand proper maintenance and control over urban spaces.
Arno Van Wyk (Cape Town, 2022-07-14)
#71I agree with the letter.
Linda Gouws (Cape Town, 2022-07-14)
#74The safety of our children and our health is threatened by this informal settlement. They have no water , sewerage or any of the basics. They must be moved for their sake and that of the community.
Therese Claassen (Cape Town , 2022-07-14)
#77I care for the health and safety of those camping next to the road. They should be moved so they can restart a normal life
Christopher Hartley (Durbanville , 2022-07-14)
#84I live in Valmary Park and my children attend the primary school. This temt town has a direct affect on us as residents walking our kids to school.
Veronique Rademan (DURBANVILLE, 2022-07-14)
#86This situation is out of control. It is a safety and hygienic hazzard for our area
Rika Janse van Rensburg (Durbanville , 2022-07-14)
#89This is just a no go. We need a solution but people can't stay in our street and open spaces
Charlotte Boonzaaier (Durbanville, 2022-07-14)
#90It's a big problem.... There's dirt everywhere, no toilets, no dustbins and illegal OPEN FIRES!!! We try to keep Durbanville clean. This not exceptable!!!
Nielene Coetzee (Durbanville, 2022-07-14)
#95This is a danger and a hazard to the community and the children.
Desslyn Pillay (Cape Town , 2022-07-14)
#96The tent residents need to be removed ASAP, as this is municipal ground and unacceptable being across a primary school.
Annelize Coetzee (Durbanville, 2022-07-14)
#98This has gone on too long without any action despite many, many complaints.
There are people living there that are renting out additional tents.
There are people that have houses that choose to stay there and rent out their houses.
They are refusing alternative accomodation..
This is a health and safety hazard!!!
Gary Kunnemann (Durbanville , 2022-07-14)
#109The tent town in Durbanville CBD is becoming a real problem as well as a safety issue
Katherin Toit (Cape Town, 2022-07-14)
#111I live close to the problem area and it is a health hazard and unsightly.
Tracy Van Heerden (Cape Town , 2022-07-14)
#112I have children in school across the road. I believe these people also deserve better. Than living in the middle of nowhere
Cecille Gent (Cape Town, 2022-07-14)
#114It is unsafe for our school children seeing this is across from the primary. It is also degrading our value of the area.
Melanie Smuts (Cape Town, 2022-07-14)
#115Tents on our doorstep is unacceptable!!!
Louise Dujard (Durbanville, 2022-07-14)
#117The squatter tented camp I becoming a big concer. The fith,stinge and unhygienic lifestyle wil be hazard for the town. Not to talk about the fact that they cannot raise children in those circumstances.
Stephanie Winterbach (Cape Town, 2022-07-14)
#120These informal settlers pose a major health and security risk to our primary school children. This is not a zoned settlement area and the so-called tents and dwellings are unsightly.
Nelmaré Laker (Durbanville, 2022-07-14)
#122I'm signing, because I have been victimised when I walked passed there. It is unsafe especially for the primary school children and parents.
Estelle van Rooyen (Durbanville, 2022-07-14)
#125Illigal housing miss use of public parks
Unsafe, un-higienic, high crime risk , open fires ext
Martin Grobler (Bellville, 2022-07-14)
#129We as tax paying residents of Durbanville find this situation unacceptable . When I vote for the DA I expect better from our councilors and the City of Cape Town. This situation cannot be allowed to continue. Please DA we need your help here.
Herman Gibson (Durbanville , 2022-07-14)
#134We have witnessed a man washing himself in a bucket one morning during school break, and the kids are playing right opposite the road. This should be dealt with hastely.
Esme Du Toit (Durbanville, 2022-07-14)
#139The situation is totally unacceptable, and must be taken care off, as soon as possible!
Johan Huisamen (Durbanville , 2022-07-14)
#145I'm signing this petition, because this is absolutely degrading to the area.
The city should make a plan to accommodate the people from the street and not allow informal overnighter to camp in out streets.
Sue-el Weyers (Cape Town, 2022-07-14)
#147Illegal occupants, tents and Vagrants should be removed. Poses a safety risk to the people of Durbanville
Karien Van Zyl (Durbanville, 2022-07-14)
#149The “Tent Town” as it is now being called, grows every day.
And if we don’t put a stop to it, the homeless will stream into our neighbourhood without control.
These people don’t want to be helped with work, they just want hand outs. And that is why they like Durbanville.
They should be moved out of Town, or to a shelter.
This is becoming a safety concern as our cameras show these people patrolling our streets in the late hours, jumping walls and putting our safety on the line.
Gert Swanepoel (Durbanville, 2022-07-14)
#153Although I feel for the homeless I do feel it’s infringing on the ratepayers of Durbanville and the safety of its residents. We pay a lot to live here and why do some who do not pay have the same rights as us?
Beth Keytel (Durbanville , 2022-07-14)
#157They do not belong there
Hans Van Rensburg (Aurora, 2022-07-14)
#159I'm a resident of the area and more than agree with all the statements made in the petition. It seems the homeless have more rights than the taxpayer nowadays!!
Kari K (Cape Town , 2022-07-14)
#162We need to do something about a squatercamp growing under right in our area.
Minnaar Pieters (Durbanville, 2022-07-14)
#163This affects the safety, value and health of my community.
Rentia Geldenhuys (Durbanville , 2022-07-14)
#169Apart from an increase in crime around the area, the fact that this is allowed right across a primary school is shocking. Young learners witness people urinating, defecation and getting dressed in public.
Stefan Buys (Durbanville, 2022-07-14)
#170I am signing because it is not right for any person to stay in tents on undeveloped land. Services need to be supplied in proper areas where houses can be built for all shack/tent dwellers in the future. Allocate them now to ground where they can start living while waiting for a house to be build.
Excelda Petrie (Durbanville , 2022-07-14)
#174Because of the health and safety issue for our children in the primary school accross from the tent town.
Elne Verster (Durbanville, 2022-07-14)
#179Im a concerned tax-paying citizen of Durbanville.
Deon Joubert (Durbanville, 2022-07-14)
#187This is now getting out of hand snd poses health and security problems.
Jane Schwerin (Cape Town, 2022-07-14)
#188It is absolutely unacceptable that individuals who work hard to pay for their rates, taxes and properties, have had to watch other individuals who are unemployed, homeless and non-residents of Durbanville, move into a public area where children used to play, that is NOT A CAMPING GROUND, the area in front of well kept ans expensive houses without paying to be there and in so doing, bringing down property values while moving the centre of Durbanville that was recently upgraded at great cost, (as it was starting to become a run down area with criminals roaming about), is bow once again developing into a ghetto-like free for all druggies and homeless people (as have been allowed to happen all over SA). This must stop NOW! This town is not to be ruined!
Adelai Van Heerden (Durbanville, 2022-07-14)
#189The current situation is untenable.
Gerhard Wiese (Durbanville, 2022-07-14)
#194This is unacceptable, no more!
Stephanie Jack (Cape Town, 2022-07-14)
#196Please remove these people asap
