An external consultant was appointed to evaluate Afesis-corplan Managed Land Settlement (MLS) pilot projects and a final draft of the evaluation report was completed. According to this evaluation, the MLS approach has great potential to help the country address its land and housing needs.
“The Managed Land Settlement (MLS) project at Cwili under the Great Kei Local Municipality shows every sign of being a very successful pilot project involving incremental land settlement and development. The MLS model appears to work in practice and requires little adjustment if any at all. What may be needed is more aggressive advocacy of the model in the context of a much more favourable policy and institutional environment nationally and locally. There are still many obstacles to the delivery of viable human settlements. In the right circumstances, MLS presents a novel solution and delivery method.”
