Property Registration Workshop

As part of the Private Sector Development component, a full-day workshop was held in August at the Salt Rock Hotel to explore ideas and opportunities related to a pilot study for property registration in the District. The workshop was attended by municipal officials, representatives from national and provincial Human Settlement Departments, the private sector, housing NGO representatives and Vuthela members. During the workshop, presentations and discussions took place around how to cater for ongoing, informal property transactions, first time deed issuance and registration and policy and laws around property registration. Following on from the workshop it was agreed to continue with the process with relevant stakeholders and to develop pilot projects around the two main workshop themes.
