Eastern Cape Human Settlements MEC Helen Sauls-August says the department has made remarkable strides in building houses for poor people.

Cape Town trade and investment head Lance Greyling says that the metro has made submissions to the Independent Power Producers office, expressing its desire to purchase 300MW of gas-fired power.

Purchases of electricity by municipalities have decreased by 4.4% between the quarters ended December 2014 and March 2015, Statistics South Africa (Stats SA) said on Tuesday.

The Black River Park, an office park has completed an expansion of its solar photovoltaic power generation facilities and will be selling its surplus power to the City of Cape Town.

About R12bn in property work perhaps more is stalled by a transition to new property legislation, says Sapoa.

Despite official assurances that a Services Appeal Tribunal would be appointed before the end of last year in Mpumalanga Province.

The state will build 216 000 houses and connect 905 000 households to electricity over the next two years, Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan said in Parliament on Wednesday.

Ever since alert to escalating municipal costs throughout South Africa, the SA Property Owners Association (SAPOA) has appointed specialist consultant Rates Watch (Pty) Ltd to research municipal budgets for the coming year.

The South African Property Owners' Association (SAPOA) and the South African Cities Network (SACN) have signed a ground-breaking Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to collaborate on issues of urban development and the promotion of good governance and city management.

With the first of July comes the beginning of the new Municipal Financial year. Alas for Johannesburg and other city ratepayers that means digging in deeper to those shallower pockets
