Human Settlements

Overview

The Human Settlements Department is comprised of New Housing, Existing Housing and Informal Housing sections. The departmental mission is to provide sustainable human settlements and housing opportunities in the municipal area of George.

Since 1990 there has been a significant influx of people to the Southern Cape. The waiting list numbers 17 835 with approximately 3460 families living in informal areas and 6661 backyard dwellers. The municipality boasts a credible housing demand database (waiting list) developed as an online system in conjunction with the Western Cape Department of Human Settlements.

The Thembalethu UISP represents one of the major housing projects being undertaken currently to expedite housing delivery in the area. The first phase has been completed and the municipality received both the Provincial and National Govan Mbeki awards for the best Upgrading of informal Settlements (UISP) project in the country for this project. In conjunction with the Provincial Department of Human Settlements, the projects on the housing pipeline has been brought to project readiness. The one challenge is the funding required to implement the various projects on the housing pipeline.
