Why fixing Cape Town’s rail network is an economic, moral and practical necessity
Urban designer Azraa Rawoot speculates about the potential for the 5 affordable housing sites in Woodstock and Salt River to be released to developers by the City of Cape Town.
The City is heavily biased against informal trade. It recognises the right to trade informally, but then puts in place a host of restrictions which favour formal trading, and make informal trading exceptionally difficult. These restrictions are not only an unjustifiable infringement of the right to trade freely in terms of section 22 of the South African Constitution, but are also impractical in that neither the general public nor informal traders themselves abide by the restrictive rules.
