Developing Sustainable Development Strategies to Expedite Housing Delivery in South Africa
IQPC South Africa, in partnership with Affordable Land and Housing Data Centre (AL+HDC) & Gauteng Partnership Fund (GPF), are pleased to announce the 4th Affordable Housing Summit.
This tailored housing summit will feature prominent industry leaders as they discuss different strategies for building and delivering quality affordable houses in a high demand market. The 4th Affordable Housing Summit offers you an opportunity to discuss industry challenges at a deal level and network with industry stakeholders.
With a growing lower and middle socio-economic segment, South Africa’s residential property market is witnessing a robust demand for affordable houses. However, there is still a backlog of 2.3 million affordable and social houses!
In his National Budget 2014 speech (26 February 2014), Minister Pravin Gordhan announced a number of investment areas that will improve the delivery of affordable and social housing.
3 essential areas include:
- R80b to local government and community development
- R35b to housing development
- R28b to water supply infrastructure
In addition to this, national government will allocate R105b to municipalities for the improvement of a number of essential services such as:
- Free basic water
- Waste removal services
