Almost 2000 new erven in Windhoek

The first phase of the City of Windhoek’s TIPEEG programme for the servicing of land in low cost areas such as Otjomuise Extension 10, is almost completed.
The TIPEEG project is the result of the 1st transfer of N$110 million of the N$320 million that the City received from central government through the Ministry of Regional and Local Government, Housing and Rural Development for the provision of water, sewage, sanitation and electricity.
According to the Mayor of Windhoek, her Worship Agnes Kafula, the availability of serviced land, especially for housing and commercial development remains a rather insurmountable challenge that the City has been faced with for the past few year.
“The Otjomuise site is expected to make available 1192 single residential erven, five business and three institutional plots. Similar projects will be rolled out at Okahandja Park and Ongulumbashe. After servicing, qualifying applicants whose names are already on the waiting list will be allocated plots to build formal houses,” she said.
The City also entered into a joint venture agreement with a private company for the servicing of the land in Otjomuise Ext 4 and Academia Extension 1, last year.
