1 November 2019

On Monday, 4th November 2019, Western Cape Human Settlements Minister Tertuis Simmers will hand over houses and title deeds to more than 150 beneficiaries of the Forest Village Housing project in Eerste River, Cape Town.

Forest Village is one of the Department’s Catalytic Projects, which commenced in January 2016 and has a budget allocation of R1,1 billion. This mixed-use development consists of various types of units to cater for beneficiaries of different income levels and specific needs such as Military Veterans, Breaking New Ground (BNG) and Finance Linked Individual Subsidy Programme (FLISP) units. Upon completion, the project will provide housing opportunities to over 5000 beneficiaries in total.

Western Cape residents benefiting from this project are from the Airport Precinct, the N2 Gateway excess, Wards 16, 17, and 108. 

The project is estimated to be complete by the end of 2020.
