Minister of housing in the Western Cape Bonginkosi Madikizela today unveiled the departments plan to deliver houses through Housing Demand Database.

Madikizela said the new Housing Demand Database will allow for much better provincial planning and policy making because that planning and policy will be based on accurate and update information.

“We intend to have a supplier in place by mid-December to undertake this important work to strengthen the collection and maintenance of data used by municipalities to select beneficiaries for housing projects.

“One of the key outcomes of the project will be the migration of date collected by municipalities to a central repository of date by the province and the continued updating of this data,” said MEC of Housing Bonginkosi Madikizela.

Madikizela added it is important that people have confidence in the process whereby beneficiaries are selected based on fair and transparent selection policy and effective communication with communities so that they understand how many beneficiaries can be assisted.
