In a reply to a DA parliamentary question, the Provincial Department of Human Settlements disclosed that there are currently 43 housing projects underway across the Western Cape with a combined R659 million having been spent on these projects thus far out of a budget of over R1.6 billion.

  • City of Cape Town: Forest Village, Airport Precinct Infill Sites
  • Winelands District: Worcester Transhex, Paarl Vlakkeland
  • Overberg District: Hermanus Mount Pleasant Infills, Swellendam Railton

MPP Matlhodi Maseko says, “The DA commends the Provincial Department of Human Settlements and local governments across the Western Cape for their partnership-based and people-centred approach to the delivery of homes and improving the quality of living conditions for residents of the Western Cape.

The DA in the Western Cape remains committed to advocating for the provision of housing opportunities to those who are most in need in our society.”
