More homes handed over in Gugulethu as City takes over infill project <p>​</p><span><p>'I am thrilled to be here in Gugulethu today at our Erf 8448 site to celebrate with the project's new homeowners. The subsidised housing project has been subject to not only contractor challenges, but many complexities and delays including the Covid-19 national lockdown, extortion attempts, the unlawful occupation of partially completed units at the Mau Mau site and vandalism to completed works. But today we honour the project teams, contractors and, most importantly, our beneficiaries.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:909px;" /> </figure></span><span><p>'The Gugulethu Infill housing project will ultimately deliver 1 004 homes to qualifying beneficiaries and their families. This is made up of 570 units at the Gugulethu site and 434 at Mau Mau. On the Mau Mau site, 131 units have been successfully completed and handed over to date despite the myriad complexities of this project.</p><p> </p><p>'The City will continue to do all it can to provide housing opportunities to those who need it most. Our teams remain dedicated to completing the Gugulethu Infill housing project for the beneficiaries and their families. Work on site is progressing well and will be completed as soon as possible. Thank you to our communities, City teams and project steering committees for the hard work and dedication to move this project forward and to move the rightful beneficiaries into their new homes,' said Councillor Pophaim.<br></p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:949px;" /> </figure></span><span><p><strong>Beneficiaries of City housing projects are 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.</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><img src="" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:997px;" /></p>​​<span style="font-weight:700;">Anonymous tip offs are welcome: Residents can give anonymous tip offs if they are aware of illegal activity that is taking place, such as vandalism or attempted unlawful occupation; that has happened or is still to happen.
