Tongaat Hulett is working together with the eThekwini Municipality in order to develop a sustainable solution to the affordable housing needs of the region. The Tongaat Hulett /eThekwini Municipality partnership identified the Cornubia site as an area on which a substantial development could be built. This sustainable mixed-use development would contribute to addressing the imperatives of city-building, job creation and affordable housing.
The Tongaat Hulett executive responsible for land development, Michael Deighton says,“Cornubia offers a unique opportunity to address the urgent need for affordable housing, city-building and job creation in the region. A development of the magnitude envisaged can only be achieved in partnership between the public and private sector and to this end we have been planning jointly with the city to achieve an optimal outcome and this process is continuing as a matter of urgency.”
