MORE than 40 families face eviction from a piece of land in Parsonsvlei, Port Elizabeth, where most of them have lived for their entire lives.

That comes after the land was bought by Westbrook Residential Development (Pty) Ltd on October 31 2007.

The company has filed an application in the Port Elizabeth High Court to bar the occupants from coming within 50m of a construction site on the land.

Westbrook owner Clifford Oosthuizen said he bought the land to develop it for both residential and commercial use.

The matter was postponed to August 1.
