City hands over homes at Gugulethu infill project<p>​</p><span><p>'Erf 8448 will provide 570 homes to qualifying beneficiaries and the total cost of this portion of the project is R105 million. This project is making good progress and we are doing all we can to ensure the project is protected so that the remaining beneficiaries can move into their homes as soon as possible. Security and the threat of unlawful occupations are two major challenges on Erf 8448. In order to address these concerns, the City has appointed additional security.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:949px;" /> </figure></span><span><p>'The Mau Mau housing project which makes up the second portion of the Gugulethu infill project is also making steady progress and will provide 434 homes to beneficiaries.

The Gugulethu infill housing project will be completed by September 2023 if all goes according to plan and we will continue to hand over homes to beneficiaries over the coming months,' said Councillor Booi.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:1473px;" /> </figure></span><span><p>Beneficiaries of all City housing projects are selected in accordance with the City's Housing Allocation Policy and the City's Housing Needs Register to ensure that housing opportunities are made available in a fair and transparent manner that prevents queue jumping and to those who qualify for housing as per the South African legislation.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:949px;" /> </figure>​​</span><p><strong>Anonymous tip offs are welcome:</strong></p><p>Residents can give anonymous tip offs if they are aware of illegal activity that is taking place; that has happened or is still to happen.
