Sherwood Community Policing Forum (CPF) vice-chairperson, Satish Dhupelia, said residents in the area were trying to deal with a land invasion on land between Locksley Drive and Loon Road.
He said residents had been hearing trees being cut and bushes cleared in the early hours of the morning recently. Dhupelia said they contacted the city’s Land Invasion Unit and metro police to intervene.
It is believed more than 100 shack dwellers, desperate for homes, are looking to move into the area.
Previously, Dhupelia said those who were marking the area told them they were tired of waiting for the government to provide proper houses for them and were being forced to find new land for shacks.
