Cove Devt seeks extension of deadline to remove illegal partitions

Cove Development, which owns the Grangeford condominium off Orchard Road, has asked the Ministry of National Development to extend the deadline to remove all illegal partitions that had been erected at the property.

Demolition works were supposed to be completed by Monday (27 July).

But Cove only managed to recover all 171 apartment units on Saturday (25 July) after it obtained a Writ of Possession for locked apartments and evicted the remaining recalcitrant tenants.

The tenants had previously been given till 12 noon on 22 July to vacate the premises after court orders were obtained.

Grangeford had earlier made headlines when authorities discovered that some 141 apartments had illegally been converted into 600 units through the use of the partitions.
