The Training for Township Renewal Initiative (TTRI) is a partnership between the National Treasury (Neighbourhood Development Programme), South African Cities Network (SACN), the Department of Cooperative Governance (Urban Renewal Programme), the Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA), and Urban LandMark. The partners are also supported by occasional associates. TTRI aims to promote, encourage and support township development and renewal in South Africa through the training of township managers and practitioners. The TTRI case studies series aims to document experiences that illustrate innovative approaches to area-based development in order to share practical ideas and lessons to inform future development initiatives and practices for South Africa’s townships. The case studies are primarily for role-players involved in township regeneration, including planners, trainers, policy makers, investors, community leaders and municipal officials. The Khayelitsha Business District (KBD) development is one of the first cases of its kind in South Africa. It is unique in that the Khayelitsha Community Trust (KCT), with its various subsidiary companies, is the major equity holder on behalf of the community of Khayelitsha. KCT and its subsidiaries are playing an increasing role in developing the precinct and in its operations and management. This case study focuses on operations and management in the KBD and provides a valuable opportunity to learn about operations and management in township nodal developments.
