Spatial targeting and urban management toolkit
01 January 2022
This Spatial targeting and urban management toolkit offers the spatial targeting method, process, and tools to spatially transform South Africa’s metropolitan cities through both hard urban systems (spatial structures and networks, and infrastructure systems) and soft urban systems (such as land use management and urban management) to achieve compact cities and transformed urban spaces of social and economic inclusion, and to future proof cities. This is done using a structured, outcomes-led Built Environment Value Chain (BEVC) approach that commences with spatial targeting, proceeds to catalytic programme development, implementation, and then urban management.
The approach, methodology, and techniques presented in this Toolkit are supported by and consistent with the following two sets of principles:
- Spatial planning principles articulated in the Spatial Planning and Land Use Management Act (SPLUMA); and
- Principles for spatial planning, implementation, and urban management developed in response to the National Development Plan (NDP), the Integrated Urban Development Framework (IUDF), the Urban Network Strategy (UNS), and the BEPP process developed between the National Treasury and metros.
