Western Cape Property Development Forum (WCPDF)

Inclusionary Housing

The City of Cape Town recently announced the drafting of a policy on inclusionary housing that will result in private developers being asked to contribute in some form to the provision of affordable housing in the metropole. To this end, the WCPDF has participated in two workshops – the first hosted on 20 September at which the industry was able to present its position to the City of Cape Town, and agree to the technical input that the industry would give towards the drafting of the policy. Below are the highlights from each presentation delivered at this workshop, together with a reportback on the workshop itself. A second workshop was held on 8 October 2018, with the City of Cape Town, and documents referring to this also appear below. To be kept up-to-date on new developments as they occur, we urge those who are not yet WCPDF members to consider joining the organisation.

Workshop 1: Thursday, 20 September 2018

Workshop 2: Monday 8 October 2018
