Council has identified non-availability of serviced land in all brackets as risk in the transformation process of the town. To address this challenge, Council has initiated land servicing through Public Private Partnership with land developers. This initiative has been rolled out in Extension 4, 7, 14, and 15. This initiative aims at making serviced land available for various categories in Oranjemund.
In addition to that, Council has also rolled out an affordable Housing Development programme in partnership with a private entity in Extension 5 for the serviced erven in that area. Council anticipates to avail more 100 houses during the first phase of the project and houses shall be built based on prior approval of loan by house owners with financial institutions. The registration for the housing programme is expected to commence in October 2016.
In addition, prior commencement of the housing development, Council through the same partnership expects to build few show houses for ultra-low and middle income for view by interested house owners.
