More new homeowners at City’s Gugulethu Infill project <span><p>'I am so excited to be back in Gugulethu today at our Erf 8448 site to celebrate with the new homeowners. The City recently completely took over the project which will mean more rapid progress to completion and more beneficiaries moving into their new homes. The project has experienced a number of complexities including contractor challenges, Covid-19-related delays, extortion attempts, the unlawful occupation of partially completed units at the Mau Mau site and vandalism to completed works. </p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Images%202/DSC_4189.jpg" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:949px;" /> </figure>​​</span><span><p>'The Gugulethu Infill housing project will 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 completed and handed over. The City is doing everything it can to provide housing opportunities to the most vulnerable. Our teams remain dedicated to completing the Gugulethu Infill housing project for the beneficiaries and their families 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.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Images%202/DSC_4214.jpg" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:964px;" /> </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> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Images%202/Silumko%20Osborne%20Njombolwana.jpg" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:2135px;" /> </figure>​​</span><p><strong>Anonymous tip-offs are encouraged. </strong></p><p><strong>Anti-extortion</strong></p><p><strong>Phone 24/7:</strong> 0800 00 6992 or <strong>email:</strong> <a href="mailto:SSIMS.SSIUReporting@capetown.gov.za" target="_blank">SSIMS.SSIUReporting@capetown.gov.za</a></p><p><strong>Vandalism or unlawful occupation (that has happened or is still to happen)</strong></p><p><strong>Phone: 021 480 7700 for emergencies. </strong></p><p><strong> End</strong><br></p><p><br></p>2024-03-25T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#02d14be4-3d23-41a6-b14a-7c4732a9aa7d;L0|#002d14be4-3d23-41a6-b14a-7c4732a9aa7d|BNG;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#a4eccbe6-2bec-49aa-ad58-8ed41a372c82;L0|#0a4eccbe6-2bec-49aa-ad58-8ed41a372c82|housing;GP0|#612315cc-1830-4820-aca6-13dd93e68a2d;L0|#0612315cc-1830-4820-aca6-13dd93e68a2d|housing allocation policy10
