City's R3 billion plan to revamp houses
​The City is on a drive to revamp old and delapidated houses in
various eThekwini townships.
ETHEKWINI Municipality has set aside R3.1 billion to rehabilitate R293 houses over 10 years, which translates to over 4 000 township houses built before 1994 being renovated or rebuilt.

The project will look at either demolishing and then rebuilding or renovating the two or four roomed houses into standard houses. 

Several townships will be included in the project including uMlazi, Inanda, oThongathi and KwaMashu. Regarding the project in uMlazi, ward 85 Councillor Thembelihle Delange confirmed that 10 houses are currently being refurbished and that the Human Settlements Unit has set aside over R1 million for this project alone. Councillor Delange said while the project began in May it was stopped due to challenges with the local forum committees. “There are meetings every week to find resolutions to the matter and we assure the community that work will resume soon.

I urge them to be patient with the processes that are currently taking place,” she said. Ward 82 Councillor Kumakwabo Dladla said: “The renovations of R293 houses will begin in August and is anticipated to take three months.” He said he is passionate about providing homes for the disabled, the elderly and frail as well as those in childheaded homes. “We try to ensure that residents are on the list for employment opportunities as well as service delivery. The burden is on us as a community to look after those who can’t help themselves,” said Councillor Dladla
