On our burgeoning African planet, there has always been a big shortage of housing for the teeming masses. But because governments are looking to address these shortages, the result has been the provision of total town and village developments.
When it comes to government housing projects the aim is to seek and create urban environments that are safe and offer a range of social amenities that go hand in hand with the housing tenure, typology and density options.
In some countries on the African continent, like South Africa, there are some big financial groups who have raised billions for housing projects for people that earn in the lower income groups.
The housing dilemma all over Africa is one that continues to be a concern for everyone. Large portions of the African population are deprived of the basic need of suitable quality shelter.
In developing a piece of land that is proposed for government housing projects, there are many things to consider and numerous options to review in order to provide the most beneficial plan.
