WHAT IS THE HDA?

The Housing Development Agency (HDA) is a national public development agency established by an Act of Parliament (Act 23 of 2008). The HDA promotes sustainable communities by making well-located land and buildings available for the development of housing and human settlements. As an organ of state, the HDA is accountable through its Board to the Minister of Human Settlements.

OBJECTIVES OF THE HDA

  • The HDA was established to address the land acquisition and assembly process so as to accelerate housing delivery and human settlement development. The two main objectives of the Agency are to:

  • Identify, acquire, hold, develop and release well-located land and buildings

  • Provide project management support and housing development services

  • In order to achieve these objectives, the Agency must:

  • Ensure that residential and community developments are sustainable, viable and appropriately located

  • Ensure that job creation is optimised in the process of residential and community development

  • Introduce and manage a land inventory and information system

  • Ensure that community participation takes place

  • NAHSLI (NATIONAL HUMAN SETTLEMENTS LAND INVENTORY)

  • NaHSLI is a comprehensive, multi-dimensional catalogue of habitable land

  • NaSHLI is based on the geospatial analysis of the natural, regulatory, structural and social environment context within which a Habitable Land Profile for South Africa is being developed

  • NaSHLI supports the identification of suitable, available, accessible and liveable land
