The DA-run City of Cape Town Delft housing project, which began construction in April 2018, will yield a total of 2 407 Breaking New Ground (BNG) housing opportunities. More than 800 houses are being built in this phase and 15 beneficiaries received their completed homes recently. The City will continue with housing delivery while at the same time preventing unlawful land occupation to protect housing opportunities for identified beneficiaries across the metro. ‘I am honoured to present these recipients with keys to their own homes and wish them much joy in their new space. We will continue to do everything in our power to protect land and the rights of residents who are patiently waiting for a housing opportunity. We must safeguard the integrity of our housing delivery programmes despite the great pressure from unlawful land occupations and the diminishing national grants for human settlement developments,’ – Executive Mayor, Dan Plato
