The preoccupation with compact cities is misdirected and will not work. Urban policy is being contradicted by economic reality, writes Richard Tomlinson. Government intends to re-engineer South Africa's cities and towns: spatially in the delivery of housing and municipal and social services, economically and, ultimately, socially. Government aims to bring us together and to break the physical and social distance inherited from apartheid where the lack of social connections left us with different world views and without shared meanings.
