A group of six families from Powertown in Klein-Brakrivier have moved to their new homes in Sonskynvallei near Hartenbos. This is the second group of six families to make the move.
Following negotiations between the municipality and the residents of Powertown, which is situated on a flood plain, at least eighteen families agreed to the move to the newly build homes at Sonskynvallei.
The municipality is continuing with negotiations with residents who are reluctant to move as they have family members buried nearby. It’s hoped that agreements will be reached with all the families to move them away from the flood plain and into newly constructed homes.
