INTRODUCTION

4.7.1Background to Settlement

Great Kei Municipaliy is a coastal municipality in the Eastern Cape. It’s abutted by Buffalo City LM to the west, Amahlathi LM to the north and Mnquma LM to east.

Great Kei Municipality incorporates 7 administrative wards that comprise various settlement types ranging from urban to rural.

The housing project includes virtually all villages in the entire Great Kei Municipality save those that fall into ward 7.

4.7.1 Status of housing projects and waiting list

950 housing projects have been proposed for Daliwe. These 950 units will be individual subsidies into existing erven.

Currently on the housing waiting list are there are approximately … housing beneficiary names have been identified and submitted as of … by the municipality/traditional leaders in the area.

Subsequently the cleaning of data received where duplications and insufficient data were removed was undertaken. This resulted in … beneficiaries being pre-screened.

ENGINEERING

BULK SERVICES

Existing Services

Source of potable water is boreholes. Availability of water is sporadic.

Electricity is supplied by Eskom.

There is no water-borne sewer system in the area.

There is no bulk municipal stormwater management infrastructure in the area.

Condition of existing infrastructure is reported to be in good working order.

INTERNAL SERVICES

Existing Services

Potable water reticulation exists with communal stand pipes.

No water-borne sewers. All households use VIP toilets.

All roads are approximately 5m wide, gravelled and generally with flat gradients.

Unlined V-drains along the edges of the road, with stormwater pipes for road crossings with lined V-drains.

Low voltage power lines in road reserves with house connections.

GEOTECHNICAL CONDITIONS

Existing houses appear to be built on strip footings.

No major cracking was observed on existing houses.

Soil conditions appear favourable for housing development subject to confirmation by a detailed geotechnical investigation.

EXISTING INTERNAL SERVICES ARE ADEQUATE AND REQUIRE NO UPGRADING.

TOP STRUCTURE

A 40 square metre house with a water tank to be provided for all beneficiaries.

House foundations expected to be strip foundations.

Human Settlements norms and standards for top structures to be applied, such as ceilings, internal & external plaster and paint, concrete roof tiles, etc.

No new VIP toilets required.

TRAFFIC IMPACT ASSESSMENT

The proposed provision of top structures on existing erven does not increase the traffic load on the existing road infrastructure.

Therefore no traffic impact assessment is required.

ROADS AND ACCESSIBILITY

Access is from a gravel trunk road that links to R61.

THE PROJECT IS FEASIBLE FOR DEVELOPMENT OF HUMAN SETTLEMENTS.

Feasibility study

There are no Critical Biodiversity issues in the municipality.

The municipality is incised with many rivers, tributaries and wetlands. As a guideline a 32m buffer ought to be maintained between housing development and any watercourse or wetland.

Development is discouraged where the land may be potentially good for agriculture and proclaimed cultivated areas.

Vulnerable vegetation must be protected.

4.7.4

ENVIRONMENT


Feasibility study

Figure 4.7.4

Environment


Feasibility study

The provision of social facilities is guided by the population threshold available to use those facilities.

The challenge with rural settlements is their dispersed nature and the associated challenges of transportation and infrastructure to support facility provision.

Great Kei Municipality seems to well equipped with educational facilities south of the N2, while north of the N2 they are more clustered towards Komga, possibly due to the spread of settlements.

Theirs is an adequate provision of health facilities in the municipality.

DISTRIBUTION OF SOCIAL FACILITIES

Residential extension is proposed southward, west of the main access road into Rocklands across the road from formerly cultivated fields.

Identified needs for Rocklands are housing formalisation, access road upgrading, new sites for public worship and cemetery extensions.

4.5.9.1SUMMARY

Great Kei ward 1 - 6 beneficiary list comprised of … people as of the …

A total of… were consequently screened after data check and clean.

… beneficiaries were successful while … failed the pre-screening process.

There are adequate social facilities in Great Kei which are adequately spread and accessible to surrounding households.

A 32m buffer from watercourses, water bodies and wetlands needs to be taken as general guideline.

The future housing site are in line with the SDF’s proposal for future housing expansion.

4.5.9

CONCLUSION

4.5.9.2RECOMMENDATIONS

In light of this assessment it is recommended that the construction of RDP houses can proceed in Great Kei ward 1-6 following carefully the prescribes of the SDF.

The Umzi Choice program ought to be considered as a possible housing delivery instrument in the area.
