CUBES and Planact Land Management Project


The Wits Centre for Urban and Built Environment Studies (CUBES) and the urban NGO Planact have jointly managed a significant research project centred on land management, a term covering a critical set of processes, including the acquisition of land, continued rights to the land, regulation of the use and development of land, and trading of land.

An overview report of this project, funded by Urban Landmark, was commissioned to scan major metropolitan areas across the country and to build up a macro view of land management issues and the conceptual and practical challenges these pose.
