A sad part of our history

The Protea Village land claim relates to a sad part of our history. People of Protea Village were removed from the land they occupied as tenants during the late 50s and early 60s. 

A section 42D agreement was signed by the Minister and the land officially handed over to the claimants.

On 17 June 2011, judgement was handed down in the case involving Bishopscourt resident William Booth, and two others (applicants), and the respondents The Minister of Land Affairs and Agriculture, The Regional Land Claims Commissioner, the City of Cape Town, the Protea Village Action Campaign (PROVAC) and two others.

FRA is continually engaging with the Protea Village claimants and related stakeholders to ensure that the development is integrated into the Fernwood community in an inclusive and mutually beneficial manner.
