Soweto is a key area in Johannesburg because it holds so much opportunity. Home to a third of Johannesburg's population, it is listed as a potential City District in the City of Johannesburg’s Spatial Development Framework. However, despite substantial investment, Soweto has yet to reach its potential as an economic hub. If Soweto is to be transformed spatially, and if its latent economic potential is to be unlocked, efforts cannot continue in a business as usual way.
The Soweto Strategic Area Framework (SSAF) project began in early 2020 and is focused on a study area referred to as the SOWETOSA. First and foremost, the SSAF is a planning and development policy document, but more importantly, it is the beginning of a dialogue between the City and the community stakeholders.View Details
