The property which houses Goodwood police station goes on auctioned today (Wednesday 27 November).

The building at 13 Wiener Street in Vasco Estate, was built in 1956 and is zoned Single Residential 1 with a departure for public service usage.

The reserve price for the building, which the public works department has rented to the police for many years, is listed as R5.8 million.

Rawson Property Group’s head of advertising and marketing, Sandhya Nankoo says the lease expires at the end of the year.

“Rawson Auctions Western Cape has been mandated to auction off this property. The current lease will be respected.”

Goodwood Community Policing Forum chairman John Ross says the “sale” of Goodwood police station has been going on for years.

“We as a CPF are completely in the dark regarding developments and any contingency plans which may be in place should the building be sold.

“This is particularly sad as the CPF should be involved in any such plans. Moving a police station is a massive undertaking and even though Goodwood police is in dire need of a more modern building, this should be in place before the existing building has to be vacated,” says Ross.

Provincial community safety minister Albert Fritz says his department will be writing to the office of acting provincial police commissioner Lt Gen Sindile Mfazi regarding the issue.

The auction will take place at Rawson Property Group’s head office on 222 Main Road in Rondebosch.

TygerBurger contacted the department for comment, but they had not responded at the time of print.

An effort was also made to obtain comment from Goodwood police spokesman Captain Waynne Theunis, but he referred us to provincial police as he could not comment on the matter. However, provincial police had also not responded at the time of print despite several attempts.
