CLOSING DATE EXTENDED: TENDER OPEN: FEASIBILITY ASSESSMENT AND SITE DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY FOR THE DELIVERY OF SOCIAL HOUSING OPPORTUNITIES ON THE CROCODILE FARM SITE
The Social Housing Regulatory Authority (SHRA) is currently inviting tenders for professional feasibility studies into the suitability of social housing on the old Crocodile Farm property in George.
Implemented by SHRA in conjunction with the relevant provincial department and municipality, social housing is a unit-based rental programme aimed at low and middle-income households.
While the George Municipality remains involved, SHRA manages the supply chain process and appointment of consultants for the studies. It should take about eight months from commencement for studies to be completed, the results of which are then given to the municipality for further action.
Should the project go ahead and depending on what the studies show to be the most suitable housing type for the site, a potential 300 to 400 units could be accommodated on the old Crocodile Farm site and construction is then anticipated to commence by beginning 2023.
