Salt River and Woodstock housing project still going ahead.

The municipality said they were awaiting the authorization of building plans for the Pine Road project, which would comprehend 240 inexpensive rental units being built. The City of Cape Town said that the Salt River Market had also been sanctioned by the Municipal Planning Tribunal.

The City of Cape Town mentioned that two main social housing projects in Salt River and in Woodstock was still moving forward. The municipality said it was awaiting the approval of building plans for the Pine Road project, which would see 240 affordable rental units being built. Good party member and former DA councillor Brett Herron has strongly criticised the city for apparent blockage of social housing in or near the CBD. The municipality was slammed by Herron for cancelling the Request for Proposals (RFP’s) for five inner city and Woodstock housing projects. Herron said that, ‘’the city’s cancellation of the Request for Proposals for the city’s inexpensive housing project two years after the request for proposals is a huge hindrance for integration and for everyone who vision a sustainable post-apartheid city.”

Although the city stated that it had cancelled RFP’s for locations so that it could follow a variety process. This will ensure it fulfilled with municipal regulations.
