Title deeds handed over during Minister of Human Settlements visit to George

Title deeds handed over during Minister of Human Settlements visit to George

Minister Simmers visited George recently and met with the Executive Mayor of George, Ald Leon van Wyk and Mayco members of the Municipality. During the visit and along with the Department’s senior executive team they shared the funding and financial planning models used by the Western Cape Department of Human Settlements. Simmers said for the 20/21 financial year, George Municipality’s allocation is R154 million which is the lion’s share of the budget in the Garden Route District. Since the COVID-19 pandemic has brought us new challenges and new realities, particularly from an economic perspective, all three spheres of government are forced to start functioning unusually. This means budgets that were allocated for various deliverables will have to be reallocated and reprioritised. As the municipality is still expected to deliver to its residents, alternatives such as Sustainable Building Technologies (SBT’s) and other affordable housing solutions should be found for their citizens.

The Minister also handed over 12 title deeds to beneficiaries in Borchards, Parkdene and Rosemoor during his visit.
