The objective of the projects was to provide quality housing to 26 000 beneficiaries in several villages in the Limpopo Province in accordance to the Guidelines provided by the Department of Local Government and Housing. Formal housing projects were provided with services such as water reticulation networks with metered communal standpipes or yard connections, internal sewer networks consisting of small bore or full waterborne sewer systems and in some instances with on-site sanitation options, internal roads and stormwater drainage.
All services were designed according to the minimum requirements, as laid down by DWAF, SABS and the "Guidelines for the provision of Engineering Services and Amenities" in Residential Township Development as published by the CSIR and issued by the Department of National Housing and the National Housing Board. Houses were planned and implemented strictly in accordance with SABS and NHBRC guidelines.
Community involvement:
As a first priority, project steering committees (PSC's) were established and liaison with the Local Municipalities took place before any work commenced in a village or Municipal region. The success of these housing projects was definitely due to active involvement from all the stakeholders mentioned above.
Labour matters were addressed by the PSC's, which ensured sound labour relations on the different sites. This in turn led to increased productivity and ensured commendable delivery by the Province in the housing sector.
