Abstract: This study analyzes challenges facing housing programmes, predominantly low cost housing projects. An assessment of the Nobody Mothapo low cost housing project in the Polokwane Municipality was done. The officials of the Department of Local Government and Housing, Polokwane Municipality, and beneficiaries of the Nobody Mothapo project participated in the study. The sample consisted of 43 participants with different characteristics. Group discussions were conducted during the data collection process. The findings of this study are that government is attempting to fulfill its obligations by providing shelter to the needy people although there are negative effects hampering the implementation process. The slow housing delivery process and poor quality houses are negatively affecting homeless people. Human settlements are still established without the necessary infrastructure such as electricity, roads and other social amenities. In this study the challenges facing this housing delivery process are discussed. Recommendations are made regarding the role of government. Consumer education is emphasized to enhance community participation in their development and adherence to project management principles in the planning and implementation of low cost housing projects.
