Inescapable reality

Inescapable Reality

  • We provide tangible social and economic infrastructure

  • Provide resources for market or customer attraction and mobilization;

  • Provide bulk infrastructure that require management and maintenance, thus creating jobs;

  • Increase municipal tax and revenue base;

  • Create room to attract future investment.


Conclusion

CONCLUSION

  • Future housing needs be done with due consideration to active participation by communities in the planning and implementation of programmes and projects.

  • Special attention must be given to the development and promotion of the community led initiatives including Co-Operative Human Settlement and Housing Development Model

  • Current subsidy framework is not sustainable under the economic and fiscal regime
