Alexandra Renewal Project

The renewal project is a joint initiative of the three spheres of government, the private sector and community-based organisations that is being implemented over seven years.

The national government allocated R1,3-billion towards the project, which aims to improve the physical, social and economic environment of Alexandra, thereby instilling a culture of civic pride. Its targets include increased local employment, a healthier environment, affordable and sustainable services, cutting crime by 50 percent, and upgraded and additional housing in conjunction with de-densification in some areas.

The Alexandra Development Framework guides all public and private sector investment in the township and provides the City council with a framework for by-law enforcement. A total of 10 development precincts have been demarcated, while the relocation of more than 10 000 households from the banks of the Jukskei River has been completed.

A vital aspect of the project is increased awareness regarding the heritage and redevelopment of the famous township. Arts, cultural and recreational activities are supported through community-driven institutions and there is a strong focus on promoting positive social networks such as religious, family and social organisations.
