In a bid to address housing challenges, a decision was taken that the Housing Waiting List was to be re-engineered into the Housing Demand Database for Gauteng province. Housing Demand Database is a new system of managing and planning for the demand of housing in Gauteng province.
The Housing Demand Database refers to all housing needs in the province, whether area based, or project based or tenure options. Beneficiaries who have benefited from a housing subsidy will be flagged on the Demand Database as INACTIVE. This policy will be the only housing official database from which prospective beneficiaries will be selected for subsidy approval by the MEC
