2019-03-14 06:00

FIVE housing projects are at an advanced planning stage for the Kouga region.

Executive Mayor Horatio Hendricks said these projects are:

  • A destitute housing project, consisting of 25 homes.
  • The Weston 196, Patensie 278 and Arcadia 139 projects.

The Council has approved the layout plans and has submitted funding applications for the top structures.

The lists of beneficiaries for all three projects have also been completed and submitted to the provincial Department for pre-screening.

  • The Hankey 728 project which, due to a shortage of suitable land, had to be scaled down from 990 houses to 728.

The layout plan is to be re-submitted to Council for approval so that the pegging of the erven can commence.

A funding application for the top structures were submitted to the provincial Department in July 2017 while the list of prospective beneficiaries is with the Department for pre-screening.
