Handover of Completed Serviced Stands Resumes at Mayfield, Daveyton

The City of Ekurhuleni has resumed the process to hand over serviced stands at Daveyton Extension 14 following a stoppage caused by repeated community disruptions and vandalism. The resumption of stands allocation came after repairs to damaged water and sanitation installations.

MMC for Human Settlements Cllr Lesiba Mpya handed over more than 35 serviced stands to deserving beneficiaries at Mayfield on Tuesday, 9 March. The project has yielded 483 serviced stands that are currently being allocated.

“The stands are ready for occupation; they are equipped with flushing ablution facilities, solar geysers and bulk municipal services. Other services like electricity will be provided as part of the City’s electrification programme. Furthermore, the beneficiaries will also have access roads,” explained MMC Mpya.

He said the stands allocation was a turning point towards a better life for many residents who have been renting backyard rooms for many years in Dayveton.

The Dayveton Extension 14 serviced stand project has a yield of 483 units, of which 96% are ready for occupation.

The stands have title deeds that will be handed over to the beneficiaries to secure their right of ownership.
