MORE than 800 concerned Howick residents have signed a petition following the protest against the chopping down of mature heritage trees and the lack of public participation in the uMngeni Municipality’s rejuvenation plans for the town.

Democratic Alliance ward five councillor Tim Lindsay-White told The Witness that he met with Howick Mayor Edward Dladla on Wednesday, following two unsuccessful attempts to meet municipal manager Dumisani Vilakazi. He said no resolution was reached, but Dladla indicated he was aware of the petition. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
