Inclusionary housing is for people like nurses, teachers, domestic workers and young professionals entering the markets.

It is important for us to have this partnership with the private sector, we are not going to be imposing this policy.

Part of the feasibility study is to consider various factors on how do we best compile this policy and also have the input of the private sector on how best to develop it.

Booi says the policy is for the enitre city, not specific areas.

The policy is a city-wide policy but where there is a need for such housing, it would have more effect there.
