Minister Simmers to handover houses at Forest village
Tomorrow, 27 May 2020, Western Cape Human Settlements Minister Tertuis Simmers will hand over the first 50 houses, to residents from Wards 16, 17, 108 and 114 at the Forest Village Housing project in Eersteriver, Cape Town.
Minister Simmers said: “Since the return of our contractors, we’ve committed to accelerating the completion of units, so that handovers could urgently take place. I’m looking forward to handing over these units to our most deserving beneficiaries. These new homes will undoubtedly assist in combatting COVID-19, as it will strengthen social distancing, while also helping to improve hygiene practices.
It is important that our beneficiaries value the asset which they receive. We encourage citizens to draft a will and ensure that they leave a legacy for their children.
The Forest Village Project is a mixed-use development, that caters 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. It is one of my Department’s Catalytic Projects, which commenced in January 2016 and has a budget allocation of R1,1 billion.”
