CAPE TOWN - Bromwell Street residents say private developers should at least help them find alternative accommodation in the Woodstock area, if they are evicted.

Residents are up in-arms over their impending eviction. A developer wants to build a parking lot in Bromwell Street.

Resident Charnell Commando says they don't want to leave the area.

"We want to be together like we have been all our lives. We would like to have affordable houses that are near to our children's schools and hospitals."

Meanwhile, the Woodstock Hub says they can't be solely responsible for the City Of Cape Town's housing crisis.

The company's Jaques van Embden says the matter is being handled as ethically as possible.

"We understand this is a difficult process but the courts have run their course. It's now time for us to build. We plan on building 50 to 70 apartments for middle income earners in the Woodstock area."
