Units in a R30m housing development have been handed over in time for Christmas.

Premier Helen Zille and Patricia de Lille, mayor, officially handed over four community residential units as part of the Sea View development in Hangberg.

The City of Cape Town, provincial government and the community signed the Hangberg peace accord in 2011 and established the peace and mediation forum as the area’s elected and mandated community representatives.

“This development is a milestone of progress following periods of strained relations between stakeholders,” De Lille said.

The first block of 26 units will be handed over before the end of December. The remaining 45 units will be handed to beneficiaries by April next year.

In a speech at the handover ceremony De Lille said the City committed to complete the Sea Views development in Hangberg.

“We saw and felt the dire need of our people for upliftment and redress in this area and immediately prioritised delivery,” she said.

Engagements between the City, the provincial government and the peace and mediation forum took place on a monthly basis for the last few years.

“It is testament to what is possible when we see challenges as an opportunity to work together and unify around our common goals.

“A working relationship of mutual respect and consideration had to be the real foundation of any development here.”

The living space includes grassed and play areas in a landscaped environment.

The complex is situated close to employment, key transport routes, social amenities and schools.

“We are not only committed to rebuilding this community, but also to giving you the opportunities to rebuild your lives,” she told beneficiaries.
