New homes for Pelican Park

2018-02-13 06:01

More than 2000 homes are set to be built in Pelican Park in the next few years.

This follows a decision taken by the City of Cape Town’s Council on Wednesday 31 January, creating the opportunity for the development of more than 15 600 houses in seven housing projects across the city (“Houses to be built in next few years”, People’s Post, 6 February).

At this point the project is in the development phase and the site for the houses has not yet been revealed.

“The site is in Pelican Park. Further details will be provided at a later stage,” says Brett Herron, Mayco member for transport and urban development.

“The project will yield approximately 2330 housing opportunities [in Pelican Park]. The exact number will be known once the design phase has been completed.”

The Transport and Urban Development Authority (TDA) is in the process of concluding the seven contracts for the appointment of multidisciplinary teams tasked with overseeing the successful implementation of the housing developments.

Since the contracts are for longer than three years, the TDA had to obtain Council’s approval before the signing of the contracts could go ahead.

“Together, the seven contracts amount to approximately R72.9m. Once signed, multidisciplinary teams will oversee the planning, design and construction of 15 664 housing opportunities across Cape Town,” says Herron.

“It is very difficult to provide the full [Pelican Park] project cost at this stage as the finalisation of the designs will determine the figure. It is, however, estimated that the engineering services on this project alone would cost close to R100m.”

Herron says they foresee that the project will yield a variety of housing opportunities, from State-subsidised Breaking New Ground (BNG) houses to GAP and possibly market-related housing opportunities.

“The number of housing opportunities for each type will be determined closer to the finalisation of the design phase,” says Herron.

“It is envisioned that the first housing opportunities will become available within the next three to five years, if all goes as planned.”

“Beneficiaries for housing projects qualify for these projects based on the date on which they registered on the City’s housing database. Potential beneficiaries are encouraged to ensure that their details are kept up to date on this database.”
