Minister Simmers to visit Overstrand Municipality to deliver new houses

9 March 2023

On Friday 10 March, beneficiaries from Masakhane in Gaansbaai will receive keys to their new homes from the Minister of Infrastructure Tertuis Simmers. With 150 units completed thus far, the R98 Million project will see the first group of beneficiaries move into their homes tomorrow. 

This historical ceremony will be followed by another housing handover at the Blompark housing project. A sum of 100 units has already been handed over and is well on track to deliver the targeted 150 houses before the end of the 2022/23 fiscal year.  

Speaking ahead of the visit Simmers said: “This scheduled visit, will highlight the Western Cape Government’s ongoing delivery of projects. In under two years of turning the sod, these projects have delivered over 250 units, respectively. An exemplary model for collaborations between the spheres of government.”
