The mission of the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Human Settlements is to create an enabling environment based on a coordinated, integrated and intersectoral approach to support human settlement infrastructure development.
The Department's strategic goals are to overhaul provincial human settlement services, with the expected outcomes of improved access, equity, efficiency, effectiveness and utilisation of human settlements, and improved governance and management; improve the efficiency and quality of human settlements services, with the expected outcomes of accreditation of municipalities, improved sector/stakeholder capacity, and improved human settlements outcomes and upgrading of households in informal houses; and paradigm shift subsuming integrated development, intersectoral approaches and well-coordinated project management.
