This case study draws on research that investigated how urban land is claimed, used or divided and the various land use management (LUM) practices that exist around these various and sometimes competing land uses. This case study is based on a research study undertaken by Colin Marx and Margot Rubin with Progressus Research and Development, commissioned by Urban LandMark. An introduction to the case study is given below. You can do these activities on your own or in groups, as appropriate for your learning session. Look at the activities before you begin so you know what to look out for during your reading. The next part of the document presents people’s stories (real names are not given) that reflect how multiple land use management practices co-exist. The final component of this document includes a summary of key issues that were covered in the case study and recommendations arising from it.


This resource is part of a larger collection of case studies developed by Urban LandMark to translate reseach findings into learning materials.
