Social Housing is a rental or co-operative housing option, which requires institutionalised management. It is provided by accredited SHIs  or in accredited social housing projects in designated restructuring zones.


Social housing provides good quality rental accommodation for the upper end of the low income market (R1 500 - R 15 000). The primary objective of urban restructuring is creating substainable human settlements.


Social housing is not just about building houses, it is also about transforming our residential areas and building communities.






What does a social housing project look like?

Social housing projects are generally 3 or 4 storey walk ups with an average number of units per project of 415 units. These can be a combination of bachelor, 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom or 3 bedroom units.


What is a restructuring zone?

Restructuring zones are specific urban areas that local authorities will identify that will benefit from social housing. All social housing projects are required to be in a restructuring zone.
