In recent years the state's regulation of land use planning has increasingly become the subject of legal research and analysis in South(ern) Africa, a matter that has assumed some urgency in view of rapid urbanization and the concomitant need to put in place land-use planning regulatory systems that will ensure orderly co-existence of people in safe and healthy urban living spaces. Where the state fails to act proactively in this regard, urban and infrastructure decay usually follows, creating an environment conducive to exploitation, criminal behaviour, corruption and a survivalist contestation for resources.
