Western Cape MEC of Human
Settlements, Bonginkosi Madikizela today launched a pioneering housing project
aimed at delivering housing solutions for rural residents in Spieskamp,
Madikizela says the department
has a strategic objective to promote partnerships in the Western Cape in order
to help alleviate the housing need.
Madikizela mentioned the
significance of the Spieskamp project is that the farm owner, has offered the
land to the municipality, who in turn will take responsibility for the
development of the houses and the transfer of ownership thereof to the intended
beneficiaries upon completion of the houses.
The identified beneficiaries are
employed at facilities within 500 metres of the development the remainder are
employed on surrounding farms as well as the research unit Madikizela added.
