ABSTRACT

The foregoing chapters have primarily dealt with changes in private sector land delivery, and government initiatives were analysed within this context. While I have thus far focused upon the confrontation between urban planners and land brokers, I have not dealt explicitly with the content of the plans and the manner in which they were supposed to be implemented. Likewise, I have analysed the impacts of the introduction of the Urban Land Ceiling Act upon the private subdivision and sale of land, without addressing the various provisions of the act and the achievements made under it in detail. Private land and housing delivery has largely been dealt with in passing, and the ‘corrective programmes’ implemented in the bottom end of the market have not received much explicit attention either.
