Blompark development on track to deliver 539 housing opportunities
With 150 houses already delivered since the Provincial Minister of Infrastructure Tertuis Simmers turned the first sod in September 2021, residents of Blompark in Gansbaai can look forward to an additional 100 brand new homes being completed before the end of March 2023.
The Blompark project, in its entirety is expected to deliver 539 housing opportunities and cost R71 million.
As with many other construction projects across the province, it too, has contributed to amplifying the local economy. To date, there have been 13 Small Medium and Micro Enterprises (SMME’s) appointed, with multiple job opportunities created.
Speaking on the progress of the development Minister Simmers said: “I am pleased with the progress made on this site. We’ve seen 100 families move into their brand-new homes, within a year since the sod-turn. Through seamless collaborations between the two spheres of government, we are not only delivering housing opportunities but also emancipating the community with meaningful job and economic opportunities.”
The Western Cape Government continues its commitment to restore the hope of our citizens through rapid service delivery of housing opportunities .
