Provision of Housing

It was found in the Eastern Cape that without buy-in from all stakeholders, housing projects have little success. Lead departments should be recognised and permitted to proceed without interference, and land use and zoning issues must receive upfront attention to prevent later surprises. Project site visits and progress monitoring need to be regular, and experienced contractors should be appointed to mentor emerging contractors. Delivery bottlenecks should be addressed and contractors should be paid on time.
