Nuwe Begin Housing Development Delivers First Gap Units

25 September 2013

Nine beneficiaries will receive the keys to their Gap market houses at a ribbon-cutting event at the Nuwe Begin Housing Project in Eerste Rivier, Cape Town.

The event will be preceded by a formal programme, which will include a keynote address by Western Cape Human Settlements Minister Bonginkosi Madikizela. The beneficiaries range in age from 49 years to 24 years of age, earn between R3 500 and R15 000 per month, and will pay a portion of the capital cost of the home, with the balance to be subsidised through the Finance Linked Individual Subsidy Program (FLISP) according to their income.

This housing project is a Provincial Government Western Cape: Department of Human Settlements (DOHS) Pilot Project to create a new and innovative direction to the provision of housing, showcasing the use of High Density urban planning to create Sustainable Human Settlements. The Nuwe Begin project will yield 1 200 BNG (free) housing opportunities and 591 Gap Housing Opportunities when complete. Forty-four of the Gap houses have now been completed,

The project is implemented by Motlekar Cape (Pty) Ltd (MC).

All media are invited.
