About Breaking New Ground

Breaking New Ground (BNG) is a policy of the Department of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation. The Department of Human Settlements is accelerating the delivery of quality housing and clean water to the people. The policy focuses from providing low-cost housing to a comprehensive strategy that looks at low cost, middle income, rental stock, provision of serviced sites and the improvement of informal settlements to make them more habitable.

Based on the policy of the BNG, the department has launched a television series, also called Breaking New Ground, to showcase the various projects that the department has embarked upon as part of the implementation of this policy.
