City’s Valhalla Park housing project progressing<div>Today, 11 November 2022, the City’s Portfolio Chairperson of the Human Settlement Committee, Councillor Anda Ntsodo, and committee members visited the Valhalla Park housing project to follow up on its progress. <br></div><div><br></div><div><span> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/BES_2875.jpg" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:948px;" /> </figure>​​</span>‘It is good to see the work being done on site and progress being made. The cost of the project is R30 million for the 2022/23 financial year. We are pleased with the steady progress being made at the project, which is expected to be completed by 2025, if all goes as planned. We are serious about providing dignity to beneficiaries, especially those who are currently living in informal settlements or are backyarders. In addition, I am impressed to see the houses which have been developed here for beneficiaries with special needs. Modifications have been made to the houses to allow for improved accessibility. I am pleased that for the first time, the beneficiaries will be handed a title deed at the same time as their key when they move into their homes.</div><div><br></div><div>‘This is an important project as it will provide many opportunities to some of the most vulnerable Capetonians who will be assisted with affordable housing opportunities. These beneficiaries will have a property to call their own which can be added to their estate and can be included in their wills to secure their homes for their loved ones in future. We urge the community to disregard rumours that the first 40 houses built will be demolished. The work is of the best quality and standard.</div><div><br></div><div>'We thank the project teams and contractors for their work here and we look forward to seeing additional progress being made in the coming weeks and months. We ask residents to support the City's efforts to protect beneficiaries, community projects and services by alerting us to any attempts to occupy land or housing projects,’ said Councillor Ntsodo.<br></div><div><br></div><div><span> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/BES_2855.jpg" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:948px;" /> </figure>​</span>Beneficiaries of City housing projects will be selected in accordance with the City's Housing Allocation Policy and Housing Needs Register to ensure 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. The City's political office bearers do not have access to or influence over the Register and its qualifying beneficiaries.<br></div><div><br></div><div><span> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/BES_2710.jpg" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:948px;" /> </figure>​​</span><strong>Anonymous tip-offs welcomed: </strong>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.
