Recent Western Cape Business News

In just three months, the City of Cape Town has finalised a total of 1 514 housing opportunities throughout the Cape metropole.

In a report to the Housing Portfolio Committee, the Housing Directorate confirmed that good progress had been made on 53 projects during July, August and September this year.

These projects are managed by the City’s housing staff and financed by national housing subsidies,” says Councillor Shehaam Sims, Mayoral Committee Member for Housing.

The final product is recorded when the serviced site and house is completed and handed over to the beneficiary. Some projects span over more than one financial year,” she says.

The projects are listed according to five categories, namely subsidy housing, incremental housing, land restitution, social and rental housing, and gap housing.

For the three months under review, a total of 1 240 subsidy housing units were built in Browns Farm, Kewtown, Melkbos, Mfuleni, Mitchells Plain and Wallacedene.

A total of 58 ‘incremental’ housing units were completed in Enkanini and Mfuleni, and another 85 ‘social and rental housing units were finalised in Steenberg.

A total of 126 ‘gap’ houses were built in Scottsdene, Elsies River and Morgan’s Village.

Six land restitution claims were settled in Somerset West.

The delivery of affordable housing is fraught with a mountain of paperwork and red tape. I would like to congratulate the City’s housing officials for working diligently and slowly, but surely, chipping away at the huge housing backlog,” says Councillor Sims.
