The Minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation, Lindiwe Sisulu has declared 136 Priority Human Settlements and Housing Development Areas (PHSHDAs) across the entire country. This is one of the HDA led programmes on behalf of national Department of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation. The intention is to ensure redress regarding the pre-1994 spatial plan, revitalising towns and cities and strengthening the livelihoods of households.
At the centre of these PHSHDAs is to enable residents to live closer to areas with economic activity and social amenities such as schools, health facilities and job opportunities as well as access to adequate accommodation.
