The DA-led local and provincial governments have been criticised for failing to redress the impact of Apartheid spatial planning.

The Group Areas Act of that time had forced thousands of families away from central business districts.

Many civil organisations maintain that the City of Cape Town’s densely populated informal settlements can be eradicated if more housing opportunities are available to the public.

The Good Party’s Secretary, Brett Herron says that in 30 years, the City has not built a single affordable housing unit in, or near the CBD.

He says that the municipality has a housing backlog of 600 000 people.

Herron says that the City must spend more on housing and to address the different human settlement needs.
