Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation Minister, Lindiwe Sisulu, has declared 136 priority human settlements and housing development areas (PHSHDAs) across the country.

Government has identified 17 land parcels for resettlement purposes for people who stay in informal settlements should the need arise, as the country deals with the spread of COVID-19.

The Department of Human Settlements has kick-started a series of national public information sessions to ensure that more South Africans become accustomed to the content and purpose of the draft regulations to give effect to the Property Practitioners Act.

The Ministry of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation has clarified its position on several media reports relating to the appointment of Mo Shaik and Advocate Menzi Simelane as special advisors. 

The Property Practitioners Bill (PPB) was gazetted for comment in March 2017, and the industry is holding its breath for the 10 000 new jobs that will likely be created with its official implementation, but prospective home buyers must take heed not to trust unqualified service providers.

Innovations and special provisions that apply to sectional title apartments and town houses do not necessarily apply to homeowners’ associations.

While the South African business sector is faced with many challenges, particularly as a result of uncertainty around the future leadership of the ANC, there is significant opportunity for growth sectors of the local industry during 2018.

The National Home Builders Registration Council in partnership with the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS)’s Entrepreneurship Development Academy will be recognizing 100 enterprising Women Contractors at the graduating ceremony of the NHBRC Women Empowerment Programme candidates.

On Thursday, 31 August 2017, Western Cape Human Settlements Minister Bonginkosi Madikizela launched the Belle Vue affordable housing project in Blue Downs with a sod turning ceremony.
