Ennerdale residents have agreed to call off their protests after a lengthy meeting with Johannesburg Council Speaker Vasco de Gama on Tuesday night.
Da Gama says the situation is expected to return to normal on Wednesday morning, including schooling.
On Tuesday, protests forced the closure of schools as residents demanded to speak with Mayor Herman Mashaba.
Da Gama says the agreement gives the metro two weeks to look at the appropriate development for the area.
He says protesters have also agreed to clear the roads.
The Speaker says the agreement between Johannesburg and residents will include an investigation into why the province has not been able to provide houses in the area over the past 23 years.
“They have given us two weeks chance to go back and come with a full mayoral team and address the community's concerns.”
He says he has also made a plea to residents.
“We’ve asked the parents and obviously older people to talk to them to stop this unnecessary looting.”
Da Gama also visited Ennerdale on Tuesday night following a separate housing protest.
He says he has taken note of all issues raised and officials in the DA-run City of Joburg are working to resolve them.
