Flagship projects

Project summary

The National Catalytic Human Settlements Programme is a flagship programme of the National Department of Human Settlements and the Housing Development Agency. A number of mega human settlements were targeted for investment and implementation nationally. NTG Solutions formed part of the professional resource team that supported government to implement various projects that form part of the programme in Northern, Eastern and Western Cape.


Key outcomes

We successfully conducted a series of land assessments, spatial analyses, development and feasibility studies and developed a human settlements policy to guide and inform the development at hand. We also developed bespoke dashboards to provide a high-technology information management tool that enables seamless monitoring and evaluation of the developments.

Project summary

The Provincial Department of Cooperative Governance, Human Settlements and Traditional Affairs is mandated to ensure the sustainable development of human settlements in the Northern Cape Province. The purpose of the Provincial Human Settlements Strategy was to ensure the provincial department is better prepared for implementation of the various programmes.


Key outcomes

NTG Solutions embarked on an extensive exercise to gain a comprehensive understanding of all the relevant elements that impact human settlements in the province and to collect all the relevant information from all the relevant places and people. The strategy was developed on-time and on-briefed and provided a data-informed way forward for complex project components such as the collection and gathering of spatial data; development of a strategic development framework, field work coordination; and stakeholder engagement
