Abstract

This chapter examines the current state of the built environment of the main cities in South Africa and reviews progress over the last decade. The built environment covers the form and spatial configuration of housing, transport, economic development and community infrastructure. The analysis focuses on the nine largest municipalities and makes comparisons with the rest of the country where possible.
