Human settlements not just about housing


Towards managed land settlement - a review of five South African case studies


Recognising that the Managed Land Settlement (MLS) approach is not new to the South African housing and service-delivery environment, the purpose of this report is to explore the lessons which can be learnt from programmes and projects which have adopted an MLS-like approach to greenfields development.

The report contains five case studies from across South Africa, focusing on programmes which have been successfully implemented over the past 15 years.
