Many questions but no quick solutions to housing

Concerned Councillors,  enthusiastic to play an oversight role bombarded  officials with pertinent questions  on the acutely slow  pace of progress on various housing projects.

Questions were asked and explanations sought on the Renishaw “Chinatown” development, progress in providing temporary  emergency housing for Karrims Lane “evictees” and Farm Abrams housing development. Councillors also queried why the houses in Ifafa Glebe have not been transferred to beneficiaries.  In regard to the development of the 325 “middle income” sites at Farm Isonti, the  KZN Department of Human Settlements official, Nirvash Sookdeo stated that it was up to the municipality and the Implementing Agent to compile a report with a list of  potential beneficiaries and also indicating what type of development was required.

Beneficiaries could take advantage of the  Department’s Finance Linked Individual Subsidy Programme. A council resolution supporting the application must then be submitted to the Department of Human Settlements.
