The City celebrated with beneficiaries of the Lourensia Park housing project in Somerset West during a special title deeds handover ceremony. Read more below:

‘I was overjoyed to be part of this special celebration as we handed over title deeds to beneficiaries in Somerset West. We are absolutely committed to enabling redress and transformation and we will continue to hand over many more title deeds to qualifying beneficiaries over the coming weeks and months in areas across the metro.


‘This project has provided opportunities to 150 qualifying beneficiaries. As a caring and inclusive City, we are committed to providing service delivery through the provision of housing opportunities to some of our most vulnerable residents. This project is an excellent example of what hard work and dedication really means. Thank you to our communities, City teams and project steering committee for the hard work and dedication during the completion of this project,’ said the City’s Acting Mayoral Committee Member for Human Settlements, Alderman James Vos.


The selection of beneficiaries for housing projects is done in accordance with the City’s Allocation Policy and the City’s Housing Database to ensure that housing opportunities are allocated to qualifying beneficiaries in a fair and equitable manner that prevents queue-jumping.
