Human Settlements’ Portfolio Committee checks on community projects

10 May 2022 in Where We Govern

The City of Cape Town’s Portfolio Committee Chairperson for Human Settlements, Councillor Albert Anda Ntsodo, and the Portfolio Committee members conducted an oversight visit to three communities on Friday, 6 May 2022, to check on work that is being carried out at City projects. The committee followed up on project progress and looked at areas where improvements and streamlining could be made.

Councillor Albert Anda Ntsodo and the Portfolio Committee members conducted oversight visits to the Gugulethu Infill project and visited the Monwood and Ramaphosa informal settlements.

‘The purpose of our visits was to check on the various projects in these communities and to see where improvements to our service delivery could be made. The City allocated R2,8 billion for the City’s Human Settlements Directorate over three years, according to the draft Budget 2022/23. It will include budget for work on informal settlements upgrades and the enhancement of basic services, public housing maintenance, Breaking New Ground housing and hostel transformation projects across the metro.

‘Our oversight visits intend to make sure that the City delivers service to our residents. The Human Settlements Directorate has a number of projects in areas across the metro, which are under way and we look forward to seeing that these projects are running smoothly. We also will assist and provide guidance where it is required,’ said Councillor Ntsodo.
