Ground breaking

Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille at the sod-turning ceremony for the Dido Valley Housing Project which took place on Monday July 26. Dido Valley will house 600 families, of which about 500 live in Redhill and 100 are land restitution claimants who were forcibly removed from Simon’s Town and moved to Gugulethu in 1965. The area is expected to have a clinic, two parks, a crèche and a business area. The site is currently being surveyed, said Simon Liell-Cock and it is estimated that infrastructure will take 12 months and buildings will take 24 months.
