The City of Cape Town plans to return the Green Point Market to its new location within the P4 parking area of the Green Point Athletics Stadium. The market was relocated previously to make way for the construction of the Cape Town Stadium and the surrounding Green Point Urban Park.
A Market Facilitator was appointed, as an interim measure in the short-term to manage, on behalf of the City, the processes and engagements associated with the return of the Green Point Market, thereby ensuring that is was inclusive, vibrant and sustainable.
The City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Management, Alderman Grant Twigg says the first and most important task was for the facilitator to do a call-back of all historical traders who were a part of the original market.
“Thusfar, a total of 98 former trades were identified and have been verified. The next phase of the programme required the coordination and facilitation of a workshop to develop a vision, market management model and structure for the market in conjunction with the trader organisations.”
It was unanimously agreed that a maximum of 200 traders be catered for.
