The South African Cities Network’s Spatial Planning and Land Use Management programme explores strategies and systems that are critical to addressing the fragmented land systems and the inherited spatial forms of South African cities.
The South African Cities Network’s Spatial Planning and Land Use Management programme supports the various initiatives undertaken by the South African government since the dawn of democracy in the area of spatial planning and land use management.
These initiatives have a number of aims:
To address distorted urban spaces that resulted from apartheid planning and urban development
To transform urban areas to reflect a developmental democratic state
To include planning and development policies, and legislative revisions, to achieve their goals
