There is already a traffic jam of cars leaving the brackenfell area during peak times which is frustrating. Adding additional housing will increase this problem.

No I do not

Generally, I’m In support of low cost housing however based on the decided location it will negatively have an impact on the following

1. Property values will decrease and there are supporting factors to prove this
2. Proper research hasn’t been done taking into account the current traffic congestion and no formal plans have been provided to state otherwise
3. As it is, there ‘s already a lack of schools in the area (amount of children to schools ratio) and cannot accommodate the additional influx of people.
4. If this development should take place there would be a need for public transport, this would be in a residential area which is a risk and an even bigger safety concern!

Although housing is a serious issue in Cape Town, low cost housing in this area will affect the property prices of the surrounding developments. It will also affect the traffic negatively, which is already a problem.

Housing is a need in the city and need to be addressed. Building low cost housing in an already established area will affect every aspect of the established areas, prices, crime, safety, risk of fire etc.
Why not establish housing of proper size and status relevant to the area and enforce all the building regulations applicable to all houses.
Low cost housing areas end up with illegal building structures and no rules are applied ending up in overpopulation of the area creating stress on the infrastructure with negative consequences.

Will deteriote the property prices. Its does not make sense to place it here

Creating low cost housing on a green zone in the centre of a well developed suburb will have a severe negative impact on housing prices and the general area. It will also lead to a downturn in new developments due to the potential risk of losing money on home purchases

I surport development of housing but it must not infringe on others rights .

I support low cost housing but not here,to little space and it will decrease the value of the other properties

I object to the low cost housing development.
Will only negatively impact the area, crime will increase and property values will drop.


The call for comment was reopened by Grant Twigg and Malusi Booi at the meeting on 10 September 2019.
Mr. Twigg said it will stay open indefinitely:
The 250-flat social housing complex in Ruwari, planned to be completed in the next financial year. Rentals will range between R800 and R3600 per month. According to a presentation by section 21 social housing company Madulammoho, the estate will include a social assistance centre (Hope Centre), that will assist poor people in the Brackenfell area. The City of Cape Town is selling the 11 334m2 land to Madulammoho at a discounted price of R3.3m, which is an estimated 10% of the current market value.
