Cape Town - Business owners in Wynberg are at their wits’ end over the decay of Ebor Road.
Over the past decade, they have felt helpless as they watched on as the area has gradually deteriorated. They have tried to get the City of Cape Town to take action but their cries seem to have gone unheard as the issue remains unresolved.
Leif Petersen, co-director for Sustainable Livelihoods Foundation NPC, whose offices are in the road, said Ebor Road has been in a state of decay for more than a decade.
’’A small, committed group of business owners, including ourselves, have invested time, effort and money in our attempts to raise the standard of the area. We have painted all of the buildings (including much of the Uli Heydt building), planted trees, and regularly clean the street of litter. Our properties are well-maintained and managed. Between ourselves and just two of our neighbours, we provide over 100 jobs,” said Petersen.
