Portfolio Committees on Human Settlements and Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs will tomorrow (02 June 2015) receive a briefing on how SALGA intends addressing challenges associated with backyard dwelling.
According to Committee Chairperson, Ms Nocawe Mafu, there is a need to ensure a balanced approach in allocation of houses in order to cater for backyard dwellers. “Government has always focused more on providing houses to beneficiaries residing in informal settlements while overlooking those dwelling in backyards. Backyard dwellers must also be prioritised,” said Ms Mafu.
SALGA will also be expected to brief Committees on its strategy to circumvent mushrooming of backyard dwellers.
Details of the meeting are as follows:
