Social housing in the inner city has received a massive boost. This after the Mayoral Committee Member for Human Settlements, Malusi Booi, recently visited the site of the Fruit and Veg social housing project in Zonnebloem. Councillor Booi announced that the site is ready to be transferred to a Social Housing Institution to begin its development.
The city says a team of professional built environment specialists was appointed in December last year to undertake a feasibility study of the site. The study will take about 6 months to complete. It will set down the development parameters for when Requests for Development Proposals are called for from developers.
The directorate has also commenced with the first steps to calling for development proposals.
The next steps in the development and land release process:
- The feasibility study is planned to be concluded by July 2022
- The intention to dispose of the site was advertised on 4 February 2022
