The challenge of providing affordable housing, basic services and facilities within our cities and regions can only be met if development plans consciously promote the social, economic and spatial integration of regions and Cities. The HSRC is engaged in research in various fields aimed at promoting such integrated planning and development. Staff of the HSRC's Development Planning and Policy Unit (DPPU) have been ~engaged in research on changing residential patterns in the Pretoria area. This includes examining the process of residential desegregation, particularly in formerly white 'group areas', and identifying zones of transition that may provide opportunities for in-fill and densification. In the formerly black townships there are certain important trends, including the upgrading and development of hostels and the emergence of new forms of inequality and residential segregation.
