New homes for beneficiaries in City’s R130 million The Hague project <span>The City will continue to deliver housing opportunities to the most vulnerable across the metro in the coming weeks and months, while at the same time preventing unlawful land occupation to prevent the loss of opportunities for already identified beneficiaries in the metro. Residents who received their homes in this housing project today include Mr and Mrs Lukeman (60) and Gaironnisa Brett (55), and Mr Selvyn Adams (49).<br><p>‘Today we celebrate with the 18 beneficiaries as they start a new and exciting chapter in their lives. It is exciting to see the progress made and the delivery of the many new homes at this R130 million housing project. We remain committed to handing over new housing opportunities to beneficiaries to create opportunities for them and to enable redress. We will continue to protect our land projects and the rights of residents who are waiting for housing opportunities as well as our communities. The City thanks the project teams for the hard work and dedication in helping us provide homes to the beneficiaries,’ said Mayor Plato.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="" alt="" style="width:922px;" /> </figure></span><span><p>‘This project which began in April 2018, will yield a total of 2 407 BNG housing opportunities and is expected to be concluded by the end of June next year, if all goes according to plan. To help address the need for affordable accommodation, we need to find more new ways of housing delivery as well as seeking greater partnerships to address the demand in the city. Our draft Human Settlements Strategy that is out for public participation sets out the challenges that confront all in the housing sector and proposes a direction to make more opportunities possible through private and public sector actions for the most vulnerable in our city,’ said Councillor Booi. </p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="" alt="" style="width:912px;" /> </figure></span><span><p><strong>View and comment on the draft Human Settlements Strategy</strong><br>Please visit <a href="" target="_blank"></a>.
