100 land parcels of state-owned land have been earmarked for land restitution.
The minister of public works and infrastructure, Patricia de Lille, revealed this in a written reply to a parliamentary question.
The Democratic Alliance member of parliament, Annette Steyn, had asked the minister what number of state-owned land parcels under the custodianship of her department have been identified as land to be transferred.
The minister added that the 100 parcels of land under the custodianship of the public works department had been identified by the agriculture, land reform and rural development department (DALRRD) for restitution.
The minister clarified that the land parcels will be “processed once all supporting documents, i.e. Section 42D agreements have been received from DALRRD”.
She indicated that over 20 land parcels have been identified to be released for housing and more than 30 land parcels will be released as commercial disposals to mainly state-owned entities.
