Looking at the Alex issue from a town planning perspective.

What impact does the mushrooming of illegal structures in Alexandra have on town planning?

Residents took to the streets last week protesting against illegal structures in the township.

Gauteng premier David Makhura visited the area and vowed to demolish any buildings found to have been erected unlawfully.

Azania Mosaka spoke to Zenzile Mbinza who is a lecturer at the Department of Town and Regional Planning at UJ on what can be done to solve the problems in Alex.

Now we have a situation where you've got a lot of people than you can spread them around in that certain area.

Zenzile Mbinza, Lecturer - Department of Town and Regional Planning at UJ

Alex is in dire need of something similar to what happened in Diepsloot. Relocating is the best advice in this case.
