Department wants to fast track RDP housing projects in Chris Hani

08 May 2012, 13:30

The Eastern Cape’s Human Settlements Department wants to improve the delivery of RDP houses and fast track the implementation of housing projects.

To achieve this, the department has called for expressions of interest from professional teams to “establish the feasibility of the project area”.

This will take the form of a study and social facilitation for the development of 17 projects together with engineering services.

Pointing out that it has an obligation to provide “adequate housing” for the people of the Eastern Cape, it says it has reviewed the challenges that have “hampered speedy and quality housing delivery” in the past.

The department states that the projects were identified by local municipalities within the Chris Hani District Municipality.

“The district is faced with a backlog of projects affected by the provision of bulk infrastructure. However, the majority of the selected projects were in the rural areas where bulk infrastructure is not a challenge.”

The 17 projects are in: Inkwanca, Lukhanji, Inxuba yethemba, Engcobo, Emalahleni and Tsolwana.

PROVINCIAL REPORT brings you an electronic up-to date daily newsletter (Monday to Friday – it will be sent out between 12 noon and 3pm) focusing on the economy of the Eastern Cape and decisions on issues such as infra-structure, agriculture, land, transport and finance taken by local government across the province as well as the Provincial Government.

The newsletter will be free until the end of May after which it will be made available on a paid subscription basis at R50 a month or R350 for the rest of 2012.

To receive this newsletter, send an e-mail to: pdhcull@iafrica.com
