Housing demand and the allocation thereof to suitable beneficiaries has been a concern of Provincial and National Governments for some years. However, accurate beneficiary information is required not only for housing planning purposes, but also to run beneficiary selection processes for housing projects that are fair.

These projects align themselves very neatly with the Premier's 110 % Green campaign because they allow our settlements to rest a little more lightly on the land they occupy.
