Abstract

Since coming to power in 1994, the democratically elected government of South Africa has been trying to address the various issues concerning land. It has been acknowledged that the complex and emotive land question relates to inequality in terms of use, accessibility, and skewed ownership patterns. This opinion piece, submitted as a commentary on behalf of the Department of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development to the Town and Regional Planning Journal and SACPLAN special issue journal, provides an overview of the land-reform programme in South Africa.
