Housing and Human Settlements


“There shall be houses, security and comfort. All people shall have the right to live where they choose, be decently housed, and to bring up their families in comfort and security.”


The Freedom Charter. In 2005 the Government estimated the housing backlog to be at 2,4-million households. Serious delays in affordable housing projects have prompted the Government to consider implementing drastic changes to the laws governing housing delivery, with the aim of removing certain identified bottle-necks.
