Municipal urban land release and acquisition
SALGA’s proposals to facilitate spatial transformation and inclusive economic growth through efficient urban land governance and management approaches
At its 2016 National Conference, the South African Local Government Association (SALGA) resolved “to assist municipalities to facilitate spatial transformation and inclusive economic growth through the adoption of efficient approaches to urban land acquisition and release” (SALGA, 2016). At the 2018 National Member’s Assembly, SALGA made 8 resolutions that are a direct response to the long-outstanding urban land reform question that the country has been battling to address (SALGA, 2018). SALGA’s proposals on urban land governance and management approaches will enable municipalities to proactively negotiate better development outcomes.
