Reverend Dr. Clifford Stokes

Dear Premier Zille,

Having seriously considered the matter of the sale of the so-called “Tafelberg site”, and as a leader in the Sea Point community as the parish priest of the Sea Point Catholic Church, I strongly support the making available of the Tafelberg site for affordable housing.  In my church community, there are many people who have to travel long distances at great expense to get to their places of employment.  For such people, to be able to live in affordable accommodation within the Sea Point area would serve to enrich their lives and indeed also the Sea Point community in general.

To quote from Cape points “Tafelberg presents an immense opportunity to make Sea Point and Cape Town a more just and socially inclusive city.”

In the circumstances, I unreservedly and wholeheartedly support the development of the “Tafelberg site” for affordable housing.

From Rev Dr Clifford Stokes
