Seitlholo, Mr IS to ask the Minister of Public Works and Infrastructure
Whether his department has successfully advertised its intention to lease out property under its custodianship to interested members of the public, as undertaken in March 2022; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?
The Minister of Public Works and Infrastructure:
The department undertook to advertise the vacant superfluous state owned properties on the open tender market using its approved letting out strategy, however the department is currently finalising the verification of the vacant superfluous properties to ensure that there are no encumbrances in terms of dolomitic conditions, environmental conditions and any other.
So far, the department has introduced the interim guideline to renew expired leases and also use assessment committees to process received applications were the encumbrances have been verified and cleared.
