29 January 2020

Tomorrow, 30 January 2020, Western Cape Human Settlements Minister Tertuis Simmers will host a public meeting in Conville, George, pertaining to the Metro Grounds Housing Project.

This project, which has a budget allocation of approximately R120 million, will culminate in more than 650 housing opportunities. It is estimated that the entire project will conclude by the end of 2022.

Minister Simmers said: “When we launched the project in July 2019, I committed to full transparency, while also keeping an eagle eye on the development. This public meeting forms part of informing and engaging the potential beneficiaries of this project.

I am particularly looking forward to having community members from Lawaaikamp, Parkdene, Protea Park, Rosemoore, Borchards and Conville in this meeting, as beneficiaries from these areas will be identified. We remain committed to improving the lives of our people.”
