One Foot Evicted

UPDATE:

The HDC has officially responded to the evictions which occurred at Oropune Gardens this morning.

In a media release, the Corporation explained that following a visit over the weekend, executives were able to confirm the existence of homeowner infractions and breaches in the community.

They added that in keeping with the agreed upon process, HDC’s Security Department with support from the TTPS, went to Oropune Gardens to begin the removal of illegal structures within the community, beginning with a popular hardware and “liming spot”.

They've also promised to continue looking into other issues plaguing the community in an effort to provide a better living situation for residents in the area.
