The City of Cape Town’s Edward Avenue affordable housing project in Grassy Park, is on track and will provide homes for 126 beneficiaries. The installation of civil works is under way and the construction of the Breaking New Ground (BNG) homes will commence once the civil work is completed.
Today, 30 November 2022, Mayoral Committee Member for Human Settlements, Councillor Malusi Booi visited the housing project to check on the progress being made.
’We are encouraged by the progress being made by City staff and contractors on site and the construction of the units is expected to start as soon as the civil works is completed. This project will be completed toward the end of 2023, if all goes as planned.
‘This project in the Grassy Park area is an example of our commitment to providing affordable housing opportunities to residents in all areas in the metro. The Edward Avenue housing project will cost R 30 million to complete and will provide homes to 126 beneficiaries and their families.
‘This BNG project comprises State-subsidised houses, which will empower many beneficiaries as first-time homeowners. The City thanks the community, City teams, contractors and project steering committees for the hard work and dedication to this project and we look forward to seeing progress over the coming months,’ said Councillor Booi.
Beneficiaries for this project will be selected in accordance with the City’s Housing Allocation Policy and Housing Needs Register to ensure housing opportunities are made available in a fair and transparent manner that prevents queue jumping and to those who qualify for housing as per the South African legislation.
