From township to town : Why plans for Cape Town’s Metro South East could improve city life for millions | FUTURE CAPE TOWN
South African cities can no longer afford isolated and disengaged interventions. How will the investments in the Metro South East build a greater town to township link and improve city life for millions in Cape Town.
National Government and City of Cape Town are collaborating to spatially transform the Voortrekker Road Corridor, an area which has all the ingredients and potential to influence the greater future of Cape Town.
There is a growing recognition that new way of delivering services in informal settlements are needed. The re-blocking of Kuku Town is an example of alternative ways of thinking through quality of place, safety and security through improved settlement layouts, and better located services.
The City of Cape Town adopted the re-blocking policy on 5 November after an announcement by Councillor Thandeka Gqada, Mayoral Committee Member for Human Settlements, City of Cape Town.
