More than 500 to benefit from housing

OVERBERG – Over the next month, more than 500 beneficiaries, across the Overberg will move into their new homes.

“These houses, which are ready to be handed over, are in various municipal district areas, including Bredasdorp, Hawston and Grabouw, and they number in excess of 500 units,” Marcellino Martin, spokesperson for Minister of Human Settlements, Tertius Simmers, confirmed.

The minister said this is an exciting period for all in the human settlements sector, particularly since contractors have been allowed to return to their work sites, which makes these handovers possible. “We are looking forward to sharing this exciting life change experience with our beneficiaries,” Martin said.

He explained that due to the Level 5 lockdown houses could not be handed over to beneficiaries sooner. “With the return of contractors, we’ve been able to consolidate the potential handovers.”

Martin said the department’s continued focus to improve the lives of the most vulnerable in communities “includes the elderly, disabled, backyard dwellers, child-headed households and those featured longest on the housing waiting list. We further know these handovers across the province will place our beneficiaries in a stronger position to help fight Covid-19.”

He said the minister says immediate occupancy will assist in maintaining social distancing and strengthening the practice of effective and good hygiene.
