Harare City Council is redesigning the Glen View Home Industry complex to cater for access roads, sanitary facilities and other amenities that make it easier for the business persons there to operate.
The complex was gutted by fire last week destroying wares worth several thousands of dollars and putting close to 5 000 people out of business.
Acting Town Clerk Mrs Josephine Ncube last Friday visited the complex and met with the management committee to chart the way forward.
She said the city will initially pave gravel access roads, collect a new database of operators, provide new ablution facilities, increase the number of hydrants and ensure that business at the complex resumes in full soon.
Operators were allowed to continue operations while the facilities are put in place.
“The city will work with the management team and all traders at the complex to ensure a speedy resumption of operations”, she said.
The waste management team will this weekend begin clearing the complex in preparation for revamping the site.
