Projects shortlisted:

We analysed all the feedback you provided and have identified projects that we feel are practical, feasible, and, most importantly, responsive to your needs and also possible within the limitations of the JDA.In defining and shortlisting possible projects, we needed to understand where land claims might hinder processes, where feasibility studies could be undertaken, where we could garner support and collaboration from other City departments, what other projects might influence our programmes, and where we could address the diverse needs of multiple sectors of the community at the same time.

The Johannesburg Development Agency’s (JDA) Vrededorp /Pageview Revitalisation Programme and Projects aims to rejuvenate and upgrade public environments in these neighbourhoods.

The project is part of both the Inner City rejuvenation and upgrade initiative and the Empire Perth Corridor Node development that the City has made commitments on over the past fifteen years.

The principles of the project are based around the concept of liveability: how well-functioning urban systems can contribute to the physical, social and mental well-being and personal development of its inhabitants.

The strong cultural and historical significance of the site makes it an important focus area with a number of social, cultural and religious institutions still concentrated and operational in the area.

City of Joburg GIS link

Here is a super useful link to the City of Johannsburg's GIS (Global Information System) public website, which allows anyone to see who owns properties anywhere in Johannesburg: https://ags.joburg.org.za/cgismobi/

NOTE: We have heard that sometimes there are delays from title deed transfer to loading on the GIS system, so perhaps bear this in mind when using the website.
