dc.description.abstractEnglish: South African cities have changed tremendously over the past 50 years. Alongside growing urbanisation, people have moved further apart or closer to each other, influenced by the reigning ideologies and policies of the past and present. Cities were and are shaped by the leading corporations, institutions and to some extent by the planners who aim to implement their visions. Many of the contemporary international planning and urban design movements promote closer proximity of new housing developments to a larger variety of socio-economic opportunities. In response, international planning and development policies from many countries advocate the development of medium-density mixed housing developments to achieve increased densification and socio-economic integration and ultimately more sustainable cities. The new housing plan, Breaking New Ground (2004), also promotes this. Yet, how many people pause to consider the opinions of those for whom these developments are planned and designed? This discussion reconsiders the issue of housing location and, in particular, the importance of greater proximity of housing projects to a range of socio-economic opportunities from a resident’s point of view.en_ZA
dc.description.abstractAfrikaans: Suid-Afrikaanse stede het geweldig baie verander in die laaste 50 jaar. Tesame met verstedeliking en beïnvloed deur verskeie ideologië en beleidsdokumente, het mense ruim-telik verder of nader aanmekaar beweeg. Stede was en word gevorm deur groot korporasies, institusies en tot ‘n mate deur beplanners wat probeer om hulle visies te implementeer. Vele kontemporêre internasionale beplannings- en stedelike ontwerpbewegings verkies dat nuwe behuisingsprojekte naby aan ‘n verskeidenheid van sosiale en ekonomiese geleenthede geleë behoort te wees. In reaksie hierop word die ontwikkeling van mediumdigtheids-, gemengde behuising voorgehou om hoërdigtheidsontwikkeling en sosiale en ekonomiese integrasie, asook meer volhoubare ontwikkeling te bewerkstellig. Die nuwe behuisingsplan in Suid-Afrika, Breaking New Ground (2004), moedig ’n ooreenstemmige benadering aan. Tog, hoeveel mense stop vir ‘n oomblik om die opinies van die mense wat hier moet bly te bepaal? Hierdie bespreking heroorweeg die ligging van behuising en meer spesifiek die belangrikheid van nabygeleë sosiale en ekonomiese geleenthede aan nuwe behuisingsprojekte volgens die inwoners.af
