Effects of urban development on former homelands need to be addressed after the period of urban transition. The article focuses on the evolution of a dispersed city settlement around Pietersburg. Three aspects are covered. Firstly, an outline is given of the apartheid legacy of developing a dispersed settlement system surrounding Pietersburg. Secondly, the post-apartheid local government restructuring of Pietersburg is described. Thirdly, the above historical findings are debated in the context of 'restructuring' Pietersburg after the transition to a new dispensation.

Gevolge van stedelike ontwikkeling in die voormalige tuislande moet ondersoek word na die periode van stedelike transisie. Hierdie artikel fokus op die ontstaan van 'n verspreidestad rondom Pietersburg. Drie aspekte word ondersoek. Eerstens word 'n uitleg van die apartheid erflating van ontwikkeling van die verspreidestad patroon gegee. Tweedens, 'n beskrywing van na-apartheid plaaslike regering herstukturering van Pietersburg. Derdens word die historiese bevindings gedebatteer in die konteks van herstrukturering van Pietersburg na transisie.
