eThekwini officials have given clarity on the Cornubia housing allocation process, following concerns over transparency.

Municipal spokesperson, Thabo Mofokeng, says each phase will see a specific settlement being demolished and the residents moved to the newly built low cost houses.

He says the executive council adopted the allocation process for the flagship housing project and others like it under the municipality.

"We want to emphasise the fact that councillors are not involved in the allocation process. It is done by qualified officials of the municipality, who then will follow the processes, as put forward by the allocation policy.

"They still have to check whether the person or the people who are beneficiaries also qualify in terms of the national criteria of people who are supposed to benefit from the government RDP housing subsidy," he said.

Two hundred and fifty homes of the first phase, which has already been completed, have been allocated to people who live in dangerous areas and have lost their homes due to floods or fires among other things.

The remaining 232 homes are set to be given to residents from a settlement which is yet to be identified.
