After eight years, the conceptual plans for the housing of the remaining 954 District Six land claimants for restitution have been completed.
Verified and validated claimants who applied for restitution between 1995 and 1998 were invited to view the plans at the Land Claims Lodgement Centre at the Department of Land Reform and Rural Development, in Mowbray, reports the Cape Argus.
The District 6 Reference Group (D6 RG) held 13 information sessions at which claimants approved or rejected the plans for the three-bedroom homes.
D6 RG chairperson Gerald Elliott said he believed all the claimants would be ready to move back by 2023 through simultaneous construction.
The houses will be built on the slopes above Old Hanover Street.
