‘Mixed use catalytic projects’ on the cards

2015-02-26 00:00

CAPE TOWN — Housing provision will aim to create more spatially, socially, and economically integrated communities, according to the 2015/16 Budget tabled in Parliament yesterday.

The Human Settlements Department hoped that “mixed use catalytic projects” would put an end to isolated and segregated communities.

To this end, it expected to disburse R315 million to eight metro municipalities over the medium-term for some 30 catalytic projects.

Provinces, municipalities, and certain public entities received transfers from the department to deliver housing. Over the medium-term, transfers to provinces would increase to R59,1 billion through the human

settlements development grant.

In the same period, transfers to metro municipalities would increase to R33,3 billion through the urban settlements development grant.
