Unpacking the D6 local spatial development framework

Public consultation on a Local Spatial Development Framework for District Six has been underway with claimants and the City of Cape Town. The purpose of this plan is to formulate a vision and related policy guidelines and intervention projects for the area.

However, questions have been raised by the D6 Beneficiary and Redevelopment Trust on why an existing 2012 with the City, province and national government which outlines the development of the area is being ignored.

In the show tonight, we unpack what this framework is all about, why it is being criticized and how future residents will be affected. Later on in the show, we get update on the current District Six court case.

On the show this evening, we have
-Instudio Dr Fauzie Basardien, interim co-chair of the D6 Working Committee
-Karen Breytenbach, the committee’s media spokesperson
-Online is Nigel Titus, Manager for District Planning within the Urban Planning and Design Department at the City of Cape Town
-Zubeida Samsodien from the D6 Reference Group
-And Nicki Vant Riet from the D6 Working Committee
