Abstract

The article primarily provides a critique of current South African housing policy based on a review of the first phase of the N2 Gateway project in Cape Town. This project was designed as a pilot to demonstrate the principles of the Breaking New Ground policy paper produced by the National Department of Housing in September 2004. The article is structured into five sections. The first is introductory. The second briefly describes recent changes in housing policy intention and practice. The third introduces the N2 Gateway project. The fourth is a critique of current housing policy raised by the review. The final section is more speculative. It raises the question of the commonalities imposed by context on the practice of spatial and policy planning in African Cities.


Hierdie artikel gee primêr kritiek oor huidige Suid-Afrikaanse behuisingsbeleide gebaseer op 'n oorsig van die eerste fase van die N2 Gateway projek in Kaapstad. Hierdie projek is ontwerp as 'n eerste om die beginsels van die Breaking New Ground beleidsdokument van die Nasionale Departement van Behuising wat in September 2004 saamgestel is, te demonstreer. Die artikel is in vyf dele gestruktureer. Die eerste deel is inleidend. Die tweede omskryf kortliks die huidige veranderinge in behuisingsbeleid en praktyk. Die derde stel die N2 Gateway projek bekend. Die vierde is kritiek op huidige behuisingsbeleid geopper in die oorsig. Die finale deel is meer spekulerend. Dit opper die vraag van kommonaliteite wat deur konteks op die praktyk van ruimetlike en beleidsbeplanning in Afrika-stede afgewing word.
