SPLUMA as a Tool For Spatial Transformation

Cities are being tasked with driving spatial transformation. This transformation objective must meet the need for inclusivity, mobility and access, economic development that drives local and national growth prospects and transforms space in a manner that is socially and environmentally sustainable.

The introduction of the Spatial Planning and Land Use Management Act (16 of 2013) (SPLUMA) was set to aid effective and efficient planning and land use management. In the context of the spatial transformation agenda, SPLUMA was proposed as a possible tool to effect spatial transformation. This study seeks to understand the extent to which the introduction of SPLUMA could assist in achieving spatial transformation.
