Rural Development Projects

DMP has, as part of it regional planning responsibilities, identified the need to provide small nodal settlements in rural areas to create opportunities for rural people, especially those who had been disadvantaged by historic injustices, to obtain access to land and housing, while at the same time being in a position to remain in the domain of the economic agricultural sector.

Three examples of development nodes of this nature, that are in the planning stage, is Vlottenburg in the Cape Winelands (near Stellenbosch), De Novo close to the metropolitan boundary of the City of Cape Town, and Fort Donald in the Eastern Cape.
