Powell, Ms EL to ask the Minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation

By what date will all residents residing in the Alfred Nzo District Municipality have access to piped, potable water within a 100 metres from their homes?

Reply:

Currently, 45.9% of the residents of Alfred Nzo District Municipality have access to piped potable water supply as compared to 20.9% in 1994. According to the 2016/17 Water Services Master Plan for the Alfred Nzo District Municipality, an amount of R14, 6 billion is required to achieve universal access to water services in the entire District.

Grant funding received by the municipality averages R400 million per year against a requirement of R6, 1 billion over the Medium Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF). Should the current funding situation not change, it may take more than 10 years for all residents of the Alfred Nzo District Municipality to have access to piped potable water supply within 100 metres from their home.

Langa, Mr TM to ask the Minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation

What (a) total number of informal settlements exist (i) in each province and (ii) in the Republic, (b) total amount of money would it cost for the Government to eradicate all informal settlements in the Republic and (c) is her department’s plan for eradicating informal settlements?

Reply:

(a)(i) Total number of informal settlements in each province is as follows:

Eastern Cape (305), Free State (153), Gauteng (710), Kwazulu Natal (248), Limpopo (90), Mpumalanga (268), Northern Cape (111), North West (172) and Western Cape (643).

(ii) The total number of informal settlements in the Republic is 2700. The status as at October 2017, based on information provided by Provinces and some Metropolitan municipalities, as well as information gathered by the Department during the informal settlement assessments, categorisation and development of the upgrading plans.

(b) It should be noted that the number of informal settlements is constantly on the increase, amongst others, due to people moving to urban areas and city centres with the hope to increase their prospects of securing employment opportunities. Due to this reality, government’s immediate priority is to upgrade informal settlements by providing access to water, sanitation, electricity and other essential services in order to ensure that people live under decent and habitable conditions.

The total amount of money it would cost Government to upgrade all informal settlements in the Republic will depend on whether a settlement will be in-situ upgraded or need to be relocated due to the site constraints. In-situ upgrading is preferred in order to minimise livelihood disruptions and relocations are a last resort. The upgrading of settlements needs to be incremental i.e. a process of change over time, with the initial priority of addressing health and safety, essential services and functional tenure. Land tenure solutions need to be simplified and partnerships with communities and civil society are critical.

(c) Department has approved 300 informal settlements upgrading plans for the current financial year. The incremental upgrade of settlements will translate into the eradication of informal settlements. However, research and empirical evidence suggests that the informal settlements will mushroom in other parts of the country due to migration.

Ismail, Ms H to ask the Minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation

(1)Whether her department has put any plans in place to assist the City of Ekurhuleni to renovate its rental stock from the dilapidated state in order to be safe for tenants; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details; (2) whether she has found that tenants are able to pay market-related rental rates for the City of Ekurhuleni’s rental stock even if they cannot afford to put food on the table or pay school fees; if not, whether she will investigate the practice; (3) whether her department has put any mechanism in place to ensure that municipalities provide safe and decent living conditions to tenants through rental stock; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

(1) Yes, the National Department of Human Settlements (NDHS) has a Social Housing and Community Residential Units (CRU) Policy in place. The Social Housing Programme is implemented by the Social Housing Regulatory Authority (SHRA). The CRU programme is implemented by Provinces. Over and above, the NDHS provides grant funding to provinces for the redevelopment and renovations of hostels.

(2) The Ekurhuleni Housing Company is a Municipal Owned Entity mandated with the management of the rental stock/property on behalf of the City of Ekurhuleni. The Ekurhuleni Housing Company's rental stock is managed under the auspices of the Social Housing Act, specifically targeted at individuals and households who meet the Social Housing criteria. Prospective tenants are subjected to a rigorous application process to select the right qualifying beneficiaries before approval of the application.

(3) The provision of security, cleaning and maintenance services fall within the mandate of the municipalities that own the rental properties. Where a Municipality has appointed an agent to manage the rental property on its behalf, the agent will take responsibility for the provision of secured and decent living conditions to tenants.

Whether she intends to request that any state-owned parcels of land under the custodianship of the Department of Public Works and Infrastructure be transferred to her department in order to address the housing backlog; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

The Department of Human Settlements has identified 167 well located public land parcels measuring approximately 14 105.1040 hectares. These are held under the custodianship of the National Department of Public Works and Infrastructure and would be appropriate for human settlements development purposes. The proposal for the release of the land parcels is under consideration by the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Land Reform.

What are the details of her department’s immediate plans to address the rapidly increasing housing backlog in the Republic?

Reply:

The National Housing assistance programme (Housing Code, 2009) sets the underlying policy principles, guidelines and norms and standards for various key housing delivery programmes to deal with the housing backlog. These housing programmes include the following:

    1. Integrated Residential Development Programme;
    2. Upgrading of Informal Settlements Programme;
    3. Social Housing and Community Residential Unit Programme;
    4. Finance Linked Subsidy Programme (FLISP), and
    5. Rural Housing Programme.

These housing programmes are funded through various Grants that are either transferred to the Provincial Departments of Human Settlements, Metropolitan Municipalities or some Human Settlements Entities, in particular the Social Housing Regulatory Authority (SHRA) and the National Housing Finance Corporation (NHFC). Provinces receive the Human Settlements Development Grant (HSDG), the Metropolitan Municipalities receive the Urban Settlements Development Grant, and the SHRA receives the Consolidated Capital Grant, while the NHFC receives funding for the Finance Linked Individual Subsidy.

As indicated in the table below, an amount of R18 779 815 000 will be transferred to Provinces in the 2019/20 financial year.

The HSDG budget allocation for the 2020/21 and 2021/22 financial years is R15.9 billion and R15.3 billion respectively. The Department will require much more than it is allocated per annum to make a significant impact on the housing backlog.

The R18 779 815 000 billion for 2019/20 will yield over 140 000 new housing opportunities (units and sites), including development planning, supplementary cost for bulk infrastructure in non-metropolitan areas and other related costs such as NHBRC enrolments.

Mohlala, Mr M to ask the Minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation

In light of the fact that the Government recently unveiled De Hoop Dam in the Sekhukhune area whereas neighbouring communities (details furnished) living near the dam still have no access to water, by what date will the specified communities have access to piped, running tap water?

Reply:

The villages in questions fall within the Nebo Plateau Bulk Water Supply project that is still under construction. The project is funded through the Regional Bulk Infrastructure Grant (RBIG) and implemented by the Sekhukhune District Municipality. The project is implemented in phases and currently the connection pipeline from De Hoop Dam and the water treatment works at Ga-Malekana are completed and partially commissioned to supply villages of Ga-Masha and Ga-Maphopha. The supply at Ga Maphopha is however constrained due to reservoir capacity that is currently being addressed by the District Municipality through MIG funding. The project progress is at 82% and the anticipated completion date is 30 September 2019.

The overall project progress is at 83% and construction is in progress for Makgeru to Schoornoord pipeline which will supply water to Makgane, Tshehlwaneng and Schoornoord. The project has been delayed by non-delivery of ductile pipes by the local service provider appointed by Sekhukhune District Municipality. The municipality is in the process of terminating the contract of the supplier in a bid to appoint a new supplier. Due to these delays, the project is now anticipated to be completed by the end of February 2020.

The villages of Ga-Marishana and Ga-Masemola are covered through a pipeline extending from Jane Furse to Lobethel. The project was put on hold due to poor performance by the contractor and the engineer appointed by the District Municipality. The Municipality has since terminated the contracts of both the engineer and contractor following failures to complete the project within the agreed timeframe. An assessment will be done on the constructed pipeline to determine the remaining scope and budgetary needs to complete the pipeline.

The village, Ga-Mampuru will benefit through a planned branch off the main pipeline from Ga-Malekana Water Treatment Works (WTW). The technical report was completed for bulk pipelines and the reservoir. However construction will only commence following the upgrading of the Water Treatment Works due to limited capacity of the water works. Currently the community is benefiting from the Boschkloof WTW which abstracts raw water from the Steelpoort River downstream of De Hoop dam. This community has access to tap water.

The full functionality of the Nebo Plateau Bulk Water Supply scheme will depend on the upgrading of the Malekana Water Treatment Works from the current 12Ml/d to 24Ml/d to provide for current and future needs. Proper planning and reconciliation of water demand and supply is required to ensure that instituted projects address the current and future needs of all the 40 villages in the Nebo plateau. The planning process is at an early stage and was delayed due to financial constraints.

Lees, Mr RA to ask the Minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation

(1)What are the relevant details of the (a) persons using the land within the basin of the Qedusizi flood attenuation dam situated outside Ladysmith in KwaZulu-Natal, including the (i) full names, (ii) area in hectares rented and/or leased by each person and (iii) duration of the period of use, rent and/or lease and the lease or rental charges charged to each person, and (b) parameters applied in allocating land to each person; (2) what are the relevant details of the plans to convert the specified dam into a dual flood attenuation and storage dam; (3) who or which government department is responsible for ensuring that no environmental damage is caused by the persons using the land in the dam basin; (4) what are the relevant details of limitations placed on the persons renting or leasing the land in the dam basin, including the (a) number of livestock permitted to be run on the land, (b) maintenance of fencing and other fixtures and (c) requirements to (i) inoculate livestock, (ii) burn firebreaks and (iii) be members of the Fire Protection Association?

Reply:

(1) (a) The Honourable Member is referred to Annexure A for the relevant details of persons using the land within the basin of Qedusizi flood attenuation dam situated in Ladysmith in KwaZulu-Natal. However, I am constrained and prohibited by the document titled “Guide to Parliamentary Questions in the National Assembly” from providing the names of each person using the land within the Qedusizi flood attenuation dam. The document referred to states that:

Questions are to be framed as concisely as possible. All unnecessary adjectives, references and quotations are omitted. Names of persons, bodies and, for example, newspapers are only used in questions if the facts surrounding the case have been proven. As the mere mention of such names could be construed as publicity for or against them, it should be clear that this practice is highly undesirable. If a question will be unintelligible without mentioning such names, the Departments concerned are notified of the name (-s) and this phrase is used: ".......a certain person (name furnished)”

(b) The Department of Water and Sanitation has held various meetings and round table discussions with all interested parties. Most of the state land within the dam boundary line was allocated to the commercial farmers whose lease agreements were due to expire. Due to emerging farmers requesting the Department to allow access to the state land for grazing purposes the land was re-allocated. Land was then divided so that all parties who applied could be accommodated. The allocation of land was negotiated with all the lessees before it was submitted for approval to the Acting Director-General.

The parameters applied in allocating land to each person are in accordance with the valuation report received and have been applied as follows:-

  • R100/ha/annum is for those around the dam (high risk area), and
  • R110/ha/annum for those away from the dam (low risk).

(2) The Department of Water and Sanitation has no plans currently to convert the Qedusizi Dam from a flood attenuation dam to a storage dam.

(3) In terms of section 1(i)(x) of the National Water Act, 1998(Act 36 of 1998), the Minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation is the owner of the land on which a Government Waterworks is situated. Therefore, the Department of Water and Sanitation is responsible as the land owner to ensure that there is no environmental damage caused by the lessees. The Department also does monitoring of the government waterworks and management thereof. The leases can be terminated if the lessees do not comply with the conditions set out in the lease agreements.

(4) Because the dam is a flood control dam and poses a danger to animals and humans, the following special conditions were included into the lease agreements.

(a) The number of livestock permitted on the land is done in consultation with the Department of Agriculture to determine the carrying capacity of the land.

(b) According to the conditions of the lease agreements, fences must be erected and maintained by the lessees.

(c) (i) It is a condition of the signed lease agreements that animals must be inoculated and marked/tagged.

(ii) Another condition of the lease agreements that the lessees must adhere to the National Veld and Forest Act, 1998(Act 101 of 1998) as well as all other applicable legislation.

(iii) The lease agreement also states that lessees must form part of a Fire Protection Association, if one exists in the area.

What are the relevant details of (a) her department’s proposed amendments to the Prevention of Illegal Eviction from and Unlawful Occupation of Land Act, Act 19 of 1998, and (b) how the proposed amendments will assist municipalities (i) in safeguarding land under their custodianship from illegal occupation and (ii) to immediately repossess land lost to illegal occupation?

Reply:

(a) The proposed amendments to the Prevention of Illegal Eviction from Unlawful Occupation of Land Act, Act 19 of 1998 seek to make provision for the exemption of certain persons from the application of the Act;

  • to prohibit certain acts in respect of unlawful occupation of land and to create offences relating to such acts and to extend the scope of prohibition thereof.
  • to make a uniform procedural requirement to all 3 spheres of government in eviction matters and also extends the period of notice of proceedings, from 14 days to 2 months;
  • the proposed amendment Bill provides for the inclusion of additional circumstances that the courts will have to consider in making orders in eviction matters.

(b)(i)&(ii) The proposed amendment Bill will provide municipalities with the basis on which they may institute urgent legal proceedings for urgent evictions.

The Bill also imposes preemptory mediation process on a municipality prior to instituting any legal processes to evict persons.

The Honourable Member will have an opportunity to comment on the proposed amendments once the Bill has been published for public comments and again when it is before Parliament for processing.

(a) Why have there been delays in the building and allocation of housing for military veterans and (b) are there any plans to speed up the process?

Reply:

(a)&(b) Indeed Honourable Member, the Military Veterans Programme has not been performing as expected and we are extremely concerned about the slow pace of delivery to our military veterans. On 3 May 2017, we convened a National Military Veterans Dialogue to exchange views and dialogue around finding solutions to challenges encountered in the provision of housing for military veterans. It has become evident to me that we have not moved far enough with delivery on this programme.

I will place the matter on top of the agenda of our MINMEC and it will remain a standing item until we make satisfactory progress on this matter.

Some of the reasons provided to me for delays in the delivery of houses for military veterans include:

(i) The finalisation and authentication of the beneficiary list by my Department and the Department of Military Veterans (DMV) has presented challenges for us. The completion of this process prior to the commencement of a military veterans’ housing project is very vital for planning. Where we proceeded to build and complete a project while the approved list had not been finalised, houses have been invaded by military veterans who did not qualify for these houses.

(ii0 Provincial structures of the South African Military Veterans Association in most cases dispute the beneficiary lists submitted by the National Department of Military Veterans.

In view of the fact that some of her department’s catalytic and/or mega projects are not following the complete project matrix plan, (a) what details can she provide on how plans of a catalytic project are initiated and (b) has she found that there is integrated planning where all role players become involved?

Reply:

CATALYTIC PROJECTS IN THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SETTLEMENTS:

(a) All the projects within the housing programmes including catalytic projects follow an approved human settlements project readiness matrix (PRM) as outlined in the PRM required as part of annual business planning processes of Provinces for the approval of the allocation of the human settlement development grant.

The target for the previous Medium Term Strategic Framework (MTSF) period was to identify and implement fifty (50) national priority catalytic projects using different tenure options to deliver mega, high impact integrated and sustainable human settlements that clearly demonstrate spatial, social and economic integration. The assessment process that was conducted in initiating catalytic projects and getting them approved by MINMEC was as follows:

Stage 1: This stage adhered to the three core principles and criteria of Impact, Integration and Project Readiness aligned to the Human Settlements Master Spatial Plan (MSP).

Stage 2: This stage looked at the detailed project description; project readiness; institutional, financial and legal arrangements; socio-economic impact and how it links to the plans of the province and the municipality within which the catalytic project is being developed.

Stage 3: This stage was assessing the technical project readiness interrogating and conducting an in-depth analysis of the due diligence reports from stage 2. Further this analysis looked at the risks involved in the project development life cycle and analysed the factors that could hamper or delay the implementation of projects including availability of bulk infrastructure required for these projects.

Stage 4: The last stage was an assessment that was conducted by the Public Investment Unit of the National Treasury to look at the catalytic projects from a public finance and public economics point of view.

(b) The plans for a catalytic project identified are aligned to the Human Settlements Master Spatial Plan (MSP) developed by the Department of Human Settlements. The MSP articulates the principles and approaches for the formulation of spatial targeting with the intention to direct spatial transformation of cities and towns whilst considering the efficient utilization of land and therefore defined the spatial, social and economic integration components required from catalytic projects. The MSP also seeks to promote the integration of basic services and social amenities in human settlement developments in line with general principles applicable to housing development. Planning for the implementation of these catalytic projects is done in a coordinated and streamlined process between and amongst spheres of government and across government departments.

CATALYTIC PROJECTS IN THE DEPARTMENT OF WATER AND SANITATION:

a) Honourable Member, catalytic and/or mega projects are planned in a fully integrated manner involving all interested and affected stakeholders in such projects. These projects can be initiated either on the supply side, that is for example, the development of a dam or a well field (borehole) or from the demand side within a particular municipality.

Water schemes are complex, costly and require long lead times (10 years +) from identifying the need, to the final operation. This is underpinned by coordinated planning following steps that include needs identification, conceptualising, reconnaissance studies, pre-feasibility, feasibility investigations, financing, detailed design, implementation and commissioning for operation. These rigorous but necessary steps are followed diligently as required by the National Water Act (NWA, Act 36, 1998), and applicable environmental legislation of the country. The NWA requires the Minister to develop and give effect to the National Water Resource Strategy (NWRS), which is updated at least every 5 years. The NWRS identifies key strategic focus areas, which are further developed into master plans and other guidelines that are implemented. The Department ensures that Project Planning and execution of mega projects follows the clear and identified steps that have evolved over the past in implementing various water schemes in the country.

From a water services perspective and in terms of the Water Services Act (108 of 1997), it is a legislative mandate of every Water Services Authority in the country to develop a Water Services Development Plan (WSDP) for its area of jurisdiction over a 5 year period and as part of the Integrated Development Plan (IDP) process (Municipal Systems Act 32 of 2000).

The Integrated Development Plan (IDP) is a five-year plan which local government is required to compile to determine all the development needs of the municipality from the perspective of all services that fall under their responsibility: water, sanitation, roads, electricity etc. This process requires the full participation of all stakeholders for all projects including catalytic / mega projects. The development of a WSDP and an IDP is the responsibility of a Water Service Authority through the Department of Corporate Governance and Traditional Affairs (CoGTA). The Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS) provides support to the WSA to ensure the WSDP completion.

b) Integrated Water Resources Development planning is the cornerstone of successful project execution and delivery to the intended beneficiaries of water schemes. The Department follows fully laid out processes through the requisite project governance structures like coordinating committees or Project Steering committees, which steer, guide and ensure project are planned and implemented with full participation of all stakeholders so that outcomes are delivered successfully. Thus, Interested and affected parties (I&APs) are given a platform to play an integral role from the identification process to the successful implementation of the project.

From a local government perspective Integrated Planning which includes Water Services Development Planning ensures maximum involvement of all stakeholders. The Spatial Land Management Act (SPLUMA) also provides the legal requirements for spatial planning and land management through a fully integrated process at National, Provincial and Local Level which includes the provision of water and sanitation services.

Cuthbert, Mr MJ to ask the Minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation

(1)(a) What are the reasons that the Lindelani Informal Settlement in the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality has not been electrified, (b) what plans have been put in place to electrify the informal settlement in the future and (c) by what date will the electrification work be completed in the 2019-20 financial year; (2) what are the reasons that (a) there are no operational water trucks in portion 71 of Lindelani Informal Settlement and (b) chemical toilets are only cleaned once a week; (3) what are the reasons that the high-mast light in Alliance Ext 9 is not operational; (4) what are the reasons that the toilets built in Alliance Ext 1 in the past six years are not operational?

Reply:

(1) (a) The City of Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality is currently implementing two housing projects in the area, namely Alliance Extensions 1 and 9, which are earmarked to benefit the qualifying beneficiaries of Lindelani Informal Settlement. Through these projects the beneficiaries will be provided with electricity.

(b) Once the community has been relocated to Alliance Extensions 1 and 9, the remaining households will be reconfigured by grouping shacks into clusters and reorganizing the ground plan in such a manner as to optimally utilise space to promote the health, safety and well-being of households, with a particular focus on promoting accelerated service delivery to informal settlements, including the provision of electricity.

(c) There are no plans to electrify the informal settlement in 2019-20 financial year.

(2) (a) The City’s Water and Sanitation Department is providing water to the entire Lindelani Informal Settlement. There are sections which are provided with water through water tankers and there is a portion next to the Paul Kruger Highway which has tap water. The City is not aware of a portion known as Portion 71, and has consulted the community who could not clarify which portion is referred to as Portion 71.

(b) As from 1 July 2019 the chemical toilets are serviced once a week as per the City’s contract with the new service provider. The City has not yet received any complaints from the community and or the leadership.

(3) The City’s Energy Department is attending to the high-mast light that is not working at Extension 9. When the problem has been identified, the matter will be resolved.

(4) During 2011 the designs for the water and sewer network systems and toilet structures were approved by the City of Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality. In April 2011 the construction work commenced, but the contractor had only access to 296 stands. The remainder of the 338 stands were inaccessible, as they were occupied by 808 households. The City attempted to relocate the residents to an identified Temporary Relocation Area (TRA) without success. Only 42% of the work within 296 stands was completed.

In 2012 the contract awarded to the contractor responsible for the construction work was terminated due to poor performance and community issues.

A new contractor (2nd contractor) was appointed in 2014 to repair and complete the construction work. This contractor experienced challenges to access the area. The City’s MMC for Human Settlements had several public meetings with the community to agree on the relocation to the TRA, and therefore to make way for the construction work. Unfortunately, the community was not in agreement to relocate and the work on site progressed very slowly. The City started to incur standing time claims from the contractor.

The Gauteng Department of Human Settlements with the assistance of the City’s Corporate and Legal Department obtained a Court Order in August 2016 to relocate the 808 households to the TRA. The Court Order was never implemented due to political considerations.

During 2017 the contract of the second contractor was also terminated due to contractual issues and resistance by the residents to make way for construction. The City appointed two contractors for the construction and installation of roads and storm-water designs. The contractors could only access 42% of the development. The first phase of the construction of roads and storm-water was completed in February 2018.

On 27 September 2017 it was resolved that the City’s Human Settlements Department will take over the installation of water and sewer network systems from the Water and Sanitation Department, as it was agreed that the relocation of residents to make way for construction is a Human Settlements function. Since then, no work has been done on the water and sewer infrastructure, as there are shacks that need to be relocated to make way for construction.

During 2018 the City resolved to suspend the Alliance Extension 9 development until the relocation issues have been resolved with the community.

(a) On what date will the houses of the Msunduzi Local Municipality’s Wirewall Rectification Programme in Phase 4 be completed and (b) why has there been such a long delay in the construction of the houses?

Reply:

a) It is anticipated that the houses in the Msunduzi Local Municipality’s Wirewall Rectification Programme in Phase 4 project will be completed by 31 December 2020.

b) The KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Department of Human Settlements terminated a contract with the original Service Provider, Masiqhame Trading 376cc in 2013 due to failure to perform in terms of the contractual agreement agreed to. Subsequently, the Msunduzi Local Municipality was instructed by the Provincial Department to procure the services of a new Service Provider to rectify the houses that were not completed by Masiqhame Trading 376cc. A contractual agreement was then entered into between the Msunduzi Local Municipality and the new Service Provider, Farfield Development for the rectification of the outstanding houses and the agreement was signed on 16 May 2016. It then came to the attention of the Local Municipality that some of the houses that were constructed by Masiqhame Trading 376cc were not built in accordance with the layout plan of the area. As a result, a Town Planner was appointed to re-design the project area and amend the zoning of the properties where required.

What percentage of water that was consumed in the Republic was recycled in each province in 2018?

Reply:

Water recycling is done by the Water Boards as Water Service Providers that are also operating Water Schemes on behalf of municipalities. The information provided to me by Water Boards in response to the Honourable Member is as follows:

Entities

What percentage of water that was consumed in the Republic was recycled in each province in 2018?

Amatola Water

Amatola Water does not recycle waste water as it is operating upstream of the water value chain in the bulk purification, distribution and storage space. Amatola Water’s processing methods at plant level involve an insignificant amount of water recycling which is approximately 1% of the raw water abstracted from source.

Bloem Water

Bloem Water Treatment works does not recycle consumed water at any of its plants; however during the purification stage water is backwashed and sent back to the catchment (Dams). This process is then metered and reported under unaccounted for water (apparent losses) which is one portion of the Non-Revenue Water for the Entity the other being water consumed by the Entity at Plants and the Head Office which is and average of 1.2%.

Lepelle Northern Water

Refer to Annexure A below for recycled water amounts by Lepelle Northern Water

Magalies Water

Magalies Water presents the quantities that constitutes 4,21% recycled water as a percentage of raw water abstracted for the period July 2018 up to 31 March 2019, for the 2018/19 financial year.

Mhlathuze Water

No recycled water activities.

Overberg Water

No recycled water activities.

Overberg Water only provides bulk drinking water to its customers mainly, the Hessequa and Theewaterskloof Municipalities and industrial agriculture.

Rand Water

Rand Water does not recycle water. However, our customers Tswane and Rustenburg do recycle water in their plants as follows:

Tswane:

Roodeplat pumping 30M;l/d (maximum capacity 60Mll/d)

Rietvliet pumping 36Ml/d (maximum capacity 40Ml/d)

Rustenburg:

Bospoort pumping 12M/d (maximum capacity 15Ml/d)

Sedibeng Water

15% of water consumed was recycled water in the North West.

Umgeni Water

The treated waste water effluent re-use is about 8% and the direct recycling is 2%

  • (At present all of Umgeni Water managed Waste Water plants discharge treated waste water to rivers that flow into downstream dams. In this way all of the treated waste water effluent is re-used / recovered in a downstream system (approximately 100Ml/d). This can be classed as indirect reuse.
  • Umgeni Water does not treat any wastewater to potable standards and hence do not have any direct reuse systems.
  • Umgeni Water has a 100% shareholding in Umgeni Water services (UWS) SOC Ltd. This subsidiary holds an 18.5% investment in Durban Water Recycling, with direct recycling volumes amounting to 30 Ml/d out of 1257 Ml/d (2%).

What is the basis on which the residents of Steenvilla Housing Project in Steenberg, Cape Town, are being evicted?

Reply:

The reason for the evictions at Steenvilla is that there is an order of court to this effect following non-payment of rentals by residents, which is a breach of the lease agreement.

In October 2016, SOHCO applied to court for an eviction order for 22 households. The High Court granted the eviction order at the end of March 2017.

Hlonyana, Ms NKF to ask the Minister of Human Settlements

What is the current cost of building one RDP house in the 2018-19 financial year?

Reply:

The total cost of a Government subsidised houses is made up of three major cost elements comprising of the purchase of the site (raw land), the costs relating to the township establishment process and installation of municipal engineering services, as well as the construction cost of the top structure.

The cost of acquiring raw land is influenced by factors such as its location and market value and this even varies from one human settlements project to the next situated within the same municipal area. The purchasing of raw land is funded from a Provinces' Operational Budget while in some scenarios the raw land is already in the ownership of the Province. As a result, no standard purchase price can be used for reporting purposes.

The cost of the township establishment process and the installation of municipal engineering services are influenced by whether A Grade or B Grade services are being installed. My Department has calculated these costs and announced it to be of an indicative nature. The indicative cost of A Grade services is set at R45 985,00 while that of B grade services is set at R36 258,00.

Besides, for the level of the municipal engineering services the installation costs may escalate due to the introduction of precautionary measures that are required to adequately address extraordinary circumstances such as dolomite, sinkholes, retention walls and rocky areas.

These measures are required to ensure that houses can withstand the conditions of the area. Resulting from these precautions there will also be an increase in the fees for professional services. For contract and budgeting purposes all variations in cost are calculated by using an electronic Variation Calculator.

Ultimately it is the prerogative of the Provincial Member of the Executive Council (MEC) responsible for Human Settlements to approve of the final costs of the installation of the municipal engineering services. The cost is to be funded from the Human Settlements Development Grant (HSDG).

For the 2018-19 financial year the subsidy amount available for the construction of a standard top structure is set at R116 867,00. The actual cost of the construction of the top structure may increase due to a number of factors. The Ministerial Minimum National Norms and Standards for the construction of Stand Alone Residential Dwellings financed through National Housing Programmes provides that each house comprising of 40m² gross floor area, must as a minimum, be designed on the basis of:

  • Two bedrooms;
  • A separate bathroom with a toilet, a shower and hand basin;
  • A combined living area and kitchen with wash basin;
  • A standard basic electrical installation comprising a pre-paid meter with distribution box and lights and plugs in all living areas of the house;

Subsidised houses to be provided to disabled persons who are dependent on wheel chair use comprises of 45m² gross floor area. The increased size provides for the specific needs in respect of the layout of the house as a bigger bathroom, and wider doors are a pre-requirement to ensure adequate movability

In addition my Department has entered into a Joint Position with the Department of Military Veterans to provide subsidised houses comprising a maximum 50m² of gross floor area to qualifying military veterans. The cost resulting from the additional 10m2 increased gross floor area and other additional aspects such as the ceramic floors tiles throughout the house, kitchen cupboards with a electric twin hop, carport with paving and perimeter fence for each property are financed by the Department of Military Veterans

With regard to the special housing needs of certain categories of disabled beneficiaries, an increase in the subsidy amount is needed to ensure that housing units delivered through the National Housing Scheme are adjusted to accommodate the special housing needs of a disabled beneficiary (or a member of the beneficiary household) to enable them to live independently, certain additions/alterations are necessary.

These disabled beneficiaries fall into the following categories and assistance is provided in line with their specific needs and additions or alterations to the housing product are effected:

  • Needs walking aids;
  • Partial/Full-time usage of wheel chair;
  • Partially/profoundly deaf;
  • Partially/totally blind; and/or
  • Partially/total movement loss/paralysis in the upper body limbs.

For comparative purposes the costs involved in the provision of subsidised houses during the 2018-19 financial year are provided below. The table provides for the installation of A Grade municipal engineering services (which is R9 727,00 more expensive than B Grade services but is most often installed) and shows the financial impact of providing different sizes of houses:

Whether she has received the report by the Auditor-General regarding the investigation she commissioned into the R80 million investment made by the Community Scheme Ombud Services with VBS Mutual Bank, if not, what is the position in this regards, if so, what (a) are the relevant details of the report and (b) further action has she instituted after receipt of the report?

Reply:

Upon the matter being drawn to my attention, I directed a letter to the Auditor General to conduct an investigation into the matter of the CSOS investments of its surpluses into financial institutions. The Auditor-General confirmed that it would undertake a regulatory audit as part of the annual audit of the CSOS. The report is still outstanding and once presented will be scrutinised for required steps to be taken should it be found that persons had acted unlawfully, illegally and/or there was fraud, mismanagement, corruption or otherwise.

In addition I have directed that the Director-General taken necessary steps to have a forensic audit carried out as well as consult and ensure that the SIU and/or Hawks are directed to investigate the matter of the CSOS investment of surplus funds in financial institutions.

As and when required I will provide reports to Parliament on the details and progress related to this matter.

Due to the huge housing backlog in the Western Cape, it was agreed that qualifying “ families facing eviction will be assisted in phases, with the most vulnerable group prioritised namely the elderly and disabled and thereafter assist those that meet the qualification criteria for subsidised housing. Currently, 37 evictees have been identified for assistance.

What is the total number of houses that were given to recipients in each Municipality in 2017?

Reply:

During the 2017/18 Financial Year, a total of 135 981 housing opportunities (made up of 49 935 serviced sites and 86 046 houses/units) were delivered through the Human Settlement Development Grant (HSDG) by the nine provincial departments in conjunction with their respective municipalities.

Of the total number of housing opportunities, 86 046 were new houses that were built across the various national housing programmes, including 3 041 social, rental, hostel and institutional subsidy units which are not given to beneficiaries but remain government (municipal) or institutional rental housing stock.

In addition, the Finance-Linked Individual Subsidy Programme (FLISP) achieved an output of 1 964 beneficiaries who received subsidies and were able to obtain mortgage loans for their houses.

In summary, 81 041 houses were built and allocated to qualifying beneficiaries or recipients. Please see link for Annexure A for a detailed breakdown of housing allocation in each province.

What is the number of houses that needs to be built in each province to eradicate the housing backlog and enable each South African in the country to live in formal housing?

Reply:

According to information derlved from Statistics South Africa's 2016 Community Survey, which is the latest official national data available, the estimated national housing backlog is estimated at 2.1 million. On the other hand, a total of 3.9 million people have registered their need for housing on the National Housing Needs Register (NHNR). It must however be noted that the numbers registered on the NHNR are being processed on an on-going basis to determine qualification for government's subsidised opportunities. So this is work in progress and not actual demand/need. Although significant inroads have been made to reduce the backlog, it remains relatively the same over years due to increasing demand that outstrips supply. The provincial breakdown of the backlog/need is illustrated in the table below.

What is the cost in Rand for each province to eradicate the backlog?

As explained in question (a) above, the assessment of individuals who have registered on the NHNR to determine if they do qualify for state housing subsidy is an ongoing process. Therefore some of the individuals may not be eligible to receive a state housing subsidy. Those who do qualify, may require different housing programme interventions, depending on their need and locality. If all the individuals on the NHNR qualify for the Individual Housing Subsidy (BNG house), about R622 billion will be required to provide land, serviced site and top structure at the current housing subsidy of R168 852.00.

2. It must be noted that the construction cost is separate from the cost of land as well as provision of water and sanitation. These costs per uniVhouse can be broken down as follows:

  • Raw Land- R6 000
  • Water and Sanitation- R7 673

3. The National Department provides the Provinces with a sector adopted subsidy quantum guideline which allocates R168 852 per house as follows:

  • Top Structure- R116 867
  • Service cost- R 45 985
  • Raw Land- R 6 000

The main reasons for the variances includes amongst others the following:

  • The housing programme(s) implemented by a Province

        In most cases implementation of Rural Housing Programme cost less than that of Social Housing Programme such as Community Residential Programme.

  • Bulk Provision

 In urban areas, bulk has to be provided before top structure can be constructed and the costs of that bulk are included in the total cost of the construction.

  • Environmental impact

The environmental conditions of coastal areas differs significantly to those of inland Provinces and this pushes the costs of constructing houses for mainly coastal areas with prolonged rainy seasons.

  • Acquisition of building material

In certain Provinces, building material has to be acquired in Metropolitan areas such as Gauteng and the cost of transport has a cost bearing in the acquisition of building material.

  • Labour costs

For rural areas, the cost of labour is less as compared to urban areas and construction costs end up belng lesser as a result.

Profile picture: Hlonyana, Ms NKF

Hlonyana, Ms NKF to ask the Minister of Human Settlements

What is the total number of persons who are on the waiting list for housing in each municipality?

Reply:

The National Department has developed and provided the ability of all Provinces and Municipalities to allow for residents to register onto the National Housing Needs Register (NHNR). The introduction of the NHNR was to provide support and assistance to Provinces and Municipalities in order to ensure that there is compliance with the principle of just and fair administrative action by the state in its process of allocation of funding and subsidies, as read with Section 26 of the Constitution. The Western Cape Provincial Department of Human Settlements does not utilise the NHNR. The information related to the Western Cape is imported in the NHNR on a quarterly basis, from a Provincial specific system.

The total number of households per municipality is presented as follows:
The information on the housing subsidy system (HSS) indicates the total number of households on the NHNR that have completed subsidy applications forms and these subsidy applications forms were captured on HSS against the relevant project.

The information on NHNR indicates the total number of households that have registered their need for adequate shelter. These households have not completed subsidy applications for allocation into a project.
