1. Purpose of the study

The purpose for this technical specification is to provide guidelines in terms of design, content and layout of CRDP reports, including the standardised map design template.

2. Background

The Department of Rural Development and Land Reform has been given the mandate by the President of the Republic of South Africa to develop a Comprehensive Rural Development Programme (CRDP) throughout the country. To achieve this mandate, the Department embarked on developing a fresh approach to rural development. The programme focuses on enabling rural people to take control of their destiny, with the support from government, and thereby dealing effectively with rural poverty through the optimal use and management of natural resources. Comprehensive Rural Development Programme can be achieved through a co-ordinated and integrated broad-based agrarian transformation as well as the strategic investment in economic and social infrastructure that will benefit entire distressed rural communities. The programme would be successful when it becomes apparent that “sustainable and vibrant rural communities” are developing throughout South Africa.
The Comprehensive Rural Development Programme is based on a three pronged strategy:

- Agrarian Transformation includes increasing all types of agricultural production; optimal and sustainable use of natural resources; the use of appropriate technologies; food security; and improving the quality of life for each rural household.

- Rural Development includes improving economic and social infrastructure.

- Land Reform including restitution, redistribution, land tenure reform.

3. Spatial Planning and Information’s (SPI) contribution to the CRDP

To realise goals set by the DRDLR through the CRDP, all departmental branches need to contribute towards the rollout of the programme. Spatial Planning and Information under the GTD umbrella will contribute to the CRDP by compiling the following:

  • A Status Quo report of each identified CRDP sites.

  • A Spatial Plan of each surveyed CRDP site.

  • Generation of relevant Maps with standardised symbology’s/designed template.

  • Identification of projects for implementation.



2.1 Definition of a Status Quo Report

A Status Quo Report relate to the compilation of information and issues in a compressed manner in order to produce a reporting working document. The SQR should contain components such as a Problem Statement, Objective of the study and the Methodology used during the gathering of information.

2.2 STEP 1: Preparation phase

2.2.1 Understanding the Scope of the Project

It is important to fully comprehend the scope of the assignment given before undertaking the actual field work. It is advisable to gather all existing information about the CRDP site to be investigated; such will allow broad knowledge about the task to be undertaken as well as the nature of the site in question. It will give information about the work that has been done before. The work done previously will assist in broadening and shaping the field work processes.

Information can be obtained from various sources such as:

  • Internet

  • Libraries

  • IDP and IDP documents

  • Other studies conducted by other departments and consultants

2.2.2 Problem Statement

Problem statement describes challenges in the area that need strategic intervention. Some of the information can be obtained during the site survey could also be obtain from the data gathered during the desktop study.
2.2.3 Research Methodology
The field work exercise needs thorough preparation. It is imperative to have an action plan that stipulates the following:

  • Activity to be undertaken

  • Time frames(start to completion)

  • Human resources(Number of Skilled people required to complete the task)

  • Capital resources(amount to be allocated to complete the task)

  • Equipment to be used (transportation, camera, GPS, etc)

  • Liaison with people from the Local Municipality and the community, should comprise of people who are influential in the area, who know the area very well and have good relationship with the community and other key role players such as ward councillors)

  • Areas or sections to be surveyed first (can chose to do site inspection per village or per ward; the land use study can be done first and then the socio-economic profile at a later stage or concurrently)It is proposed that the socio economic profile be done as early as possible during the process.

A successful completed Status quo Report is, one with relevant and accurate information which will assist in formulating realistic and measurable intervention strategies.
2.3 STEP 2: Field Work
2.3.1 Conducting the field work
There are various attributes that contributes to the unique character of the area. It is important to capture as much relevant information to produce a credible status quo report that can be used to derive different strategies dealing with challenges in the area and contributing towards the growth and development of the area. Conducting field work include detailing everything that can be seen above the ground and investigating what is underneath the surface like minerals, coal etc. Such will determine the strengths and weaknesses of the area. (Always verify information given to ensure authenticity).

Conducting the field work should answer the following questions:

  • Where is the site situated(Geographical location of the site)

  • What is happening on the ground (land use activities)

  • What are the applicable governing legislations and policies?

  • How are the land use activities functioning on the ground (contribution towards the growth and development of the area)

  • Who are the beneficiaries in the area?

      1. Geographical location of the CRDP Site

The Geographical location of the CRDP site must be properly stated. The report must mention the exact location of the CRDP site in terms of the following:

  • Municipal jurisdiction,

  • Adjoining municipalities, the Province name which the CRDP is administered.

  • Number of wards, size and indicate the boundary line

  • Number of Villages and the boundary line

For example Mogale city is located in Krugersdorp within the jurisdiction of Mogale City Municipality under the Gauteng Provincial administration. Mogale City share its municipal boundary with 5 other Municipalities namely; Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality to the east, Rustenburg Municipality on the western side, Madibeng Municipality on the northern side, Randfontein Municipality and Merafong City on the southern side of Mogale City. It has 16 wards and 10 Villages.
NB: Use Locality Map to put the CRDP site in contextnew map 2 district context

Figure 1: District context

new map 3 location

Figure 2: Site location

      1. What is happening on the ground

        1. Land use activities

The status quo report must contain in detail what is happening on the ground in terms of land uses activities. This can be obtained during a land use survey. (Land use information should not be confused with the zoning information). Examples of land use activities include: houses, offices, shops, doctor’s room, roads, hospitals, dams, mountains etc. All these land use activities combined create a sense of place and uniqueness of the specific area. Character of the area

The CRDP site can comprise of either Rural/urban character or combination of both (Motivate the character mentioned, what constitute the chosen character by stating the most dominating attributes or qualities, Example of dominating attributes can be :

  • Agriculture/farming,

  • low density, scattered settlements pattern,

  • off grid system,

  • integrated mode of transport,

  • high densities and high rise buildings,

  • on grid system,

  • Adequate community facilities etc

  • Nature and accessibility of infrastructure services e.g. Roads, tap water, sewer system etc

  • Access to government facilities e.g. clinics schools, hospitals, home affairs and other related facilities

  • Location of the CRDP site in relation to economic opportunities and public transportation

In short, state what makes or constitute an area to be classified rural or urban.

        1. Socio Economic and Household Profile

Socio Economic profile provides detail information regarding the strength of the area to deal with everyday life demands and the ability to sustain itself. Whereas the House hold Profile determines and tests the individual skill and zeal to survive and succeed irrespective of frail conditions the area provide. For accurate information, it is advisable were possible to conduct socio economic and household study, such will give realistic profile about the state of household and socio economic status within the CRDP site.
Other that Household questionnaire, a site inspection, engaging with Community leaders and Municipality officials will further provide detail information. Questions to be asked include the following:

  • Number of household occupants and Population density of the CRDP site

  • Ages

  • Racial ratio

  • Gender ratio

  • Nationality

  • Cultural components

  • Employment levels

  • Income levels

  • Education levels

  • Type of skills acquired

  • Traditional skills: inherit skills or ability to farm, knit, cook without any form of training

  • Conventional skills: skills acquire through extensive training (degrees or certificates)

  • Health

  • Chronic illness e.g. high blood, diabetes

  • Disability : permanent( no ability to work) semi permanent(has the ability to work)

  • Birth and Death rate

  • Parent headed homes and Children headed homes

  • Size of the household

  • The migration patterns, such will assist in determining the pull and push factors.

        1. Ownership and tenure

  • Determine number of land parcels owned by the State (National, Provincial and Municipalities; tribal Authorities, Private either companies or individual owned.

  • Property size, Zoning and land use activities taking place on the land.

  • Determine land ownership that took place through Land Reform and Restitution processes and mention activities taking place.(see example below)

Table 1: Agriculture activities through land Reform

  • Determine the land availability in terms of hectare and also indicate the location of vacant available land.

  • Determine how many people are leasing/renting and with whom (government, companies, tribal authorities or private owners).

  • Determine if the lease agreement is in writing or not.

  • Duration of the lease

  • Terms of payment and the sum payable monthly

  • Determine if they are leasing the structure or land and the structure or the land only

  • What are the terms and condition of the lease agreement

        1. Housing

  • How many formal and informal structures are there

  • Mention the backlog if any

  • Number of backyard shacks

  • Is the informal settlements growing or properly contained.

Table 2: Housing project

        1. Economic Activities

State what type of economic activities/businesses found in the area

  • First Economy( industries, commercial, offices, businesses)

  • Second economy (All small businesses operating from home or on street pavements e.g. taxi industry, tavern/shebeen, spaza shop. Street traders, motor mechanics and other related businesses).

        1. Infrastructure availability and Capacity

Mention if the CRDP site is off or on grid system i.e. connected or not connected to Electricity, Water, Telecommunication, Sewer and sanitation system. Determine the availability and capacity of the infrastructure by establishing if the entire site has infrastructure or not. If not all, then list all areas in need of infrastructure installation and what kind of infrastructure needed. Same goes to areas in need of infrastructure upgrading. For example: Tswelelopele/Masakhane in Mogale city has water capacity problem. Doornkloof need to be on grid system as they are using borehole system. (Use a Map to indicate infrastructure availability and areas need of infrastructural intervention.)

        1. Transportation network

Mention the state of roads, types of transport mode available and Integration of the transport system. Mention everything that relates to the effectiveness of the transport network, and the effectiveness of the road network. Add the hierarchy of roads and classification of roads in terms of motorised and none motorised transportation.

Further mention the state of road, is it tarred or gravel (Add map showing road network and hierarch of roads and classification).

        1. Traffic calming measures

Mention type of traffic calming measures existing in the area for example:

  • Traffic light where high volume of cars exist

  • Stop signs

  • Humps

  • Traffic circle

        1. Signage

Mention if the area has visible signage for:

  • Directions to promote accessibility

  • Street numbering for building identification. This is important for delivery, emergency and also for ownership and locality purposes.

  • Alerting people about activities taking place in the area for example:

  • Sign showing animals, pedestrian crossing, hospital, construction vehicles, bridges etc.

        1. Environmental Attributes/Physical features

  • List of environmental attributes, i.e. Rivers, Ridges, and Mountains, Streams, Dams, Agriculture, Wetland and other related attributes.

  • Mention the state of the above listed environmental Attributes in the area and the impact thereof.(Add maps to indicate protected and sensitive environmental areas.) Geology and Soil

Indicate the soil type, rocks, and dolomites, mine dumps if any. This will assist in determining the suitability of the soil for, among others, agricultural purposes. (Use Map to illustrate Geology information) Climate condition

Where visible indicate the Temperature level, humid condition and also the impact of climate change in the area.

      1. Applicable legislation and policies used to govern land uses and the authority to grant permission for development.

CRDP sites vary from one another in terms of applicable Legislations and Policies/By Laws. Therefore it becomes imperative to establish what legislations and policies applicable to each site and also to establish who the decision makers are especially when development is to take place on tribal land or privately owned land. Policies have the function to direct development to take place in an orderly manner and therefore the knowledge of existing policies will assist in proposing projects that are in line with Municipal approved policies.

However, in areas where policies do not exist, one of the interventions could be assisting the Municipality to formulate a policy that will guide growth and development in the area to avoid ad-hoc development. The CRDP Status Quo Report must contain the following:

  • All legislations and policies/by laws applicable in the area. State the legal status and promulgation date or date of operation of both applicable Legislation and Policies.

  • Challenges posed by such existence or lack of such legislations and policies.

  • Policies due for review.

  • Methods used to apply for development in land owned by Tribal Authority.

  • Methods used by tribal authority to give an in-principle approval or refusal.

  • Who are the Tribunal members and qualification and position they hold?

  • Who forms part of the Tribal Authority?
      1. Role and Function of Land Use Activities

  • Establish how the land use activities impact on the livelihood of people.

  • Are the land use activities contributing towards the growth and development of the area (Economically and socially by contributing to the GDP and employment rate)?

  • What are the pull and push factors in the area?

  • What are the land use changes that took place in the area since year 2000(what are the implication thereof)

  • Are the land uses(economic and communal facilities) accessible, integrated and promote sustainability?

  • Are the facilities currently provided adequate to accommodate existing needs?

  • Is the service rendered efficient?

  • How is agriculture responding, are they growing into commercial or still subsistence farming?

  • Are beneficiaries of the Land Reform and Restitution yielding tangible result or not, If not what are the challenges?

      1. Role players regarding land use activities

        1. Role players:

Establish who the key role players are in the area. What contribution do they make in the upliftment of the area/ implementation of projects (Municipality, Business people, Councillors, Institutions, and Profit Organisation traditionalist/ chiefs etc) for example Capitac Bank has projects in rural areas to build schools and Centres for Disabled and Orphan. They also assist in fruit gardening projects in Ivory Park. Capacity of the Municipality

It is required to establish the human capacity of the Municipality in all CRDP sites for the implementation and management of CRDP projects. The need analysis should be done concurrently with the detailed Socio Economic profile so that areas of greater need receive urgent attention.

The following should form part of the need analysis questionnaire:

  • Planning Department and qualified Planners.

  • Qualifications of Decision Makers such registered Engineers.

  • Sector departments including Disaster Management team.

  • Human and capital resource.

  • Skills to deal with the CRDP rollout programme.

  • Management systems in place for example GIS

  • Office equipment

  • Other resources not mentioned.

2.4 STEP 3: Data Analyses
All information gathered during Step 1 and 2 should form part of the analysis phase and give direction to the analyses. The analyses should give a clear indication of what is happening on the ground and the implication thereof on the growth and development of the area. It is recommended that the data be analysed by means of the SWOT Analyses method.

The SWOT Analyses should take all information obtained during the land use survey and classify it according to categories/attributes e.g. Economic, Social, Infrastructure, Environmental, Physical/Spatial etc. Below layers indicate the level of detail that need to be researched and analysed to determine impact thereon.

Once the classification is completed, mention the advantages and disadvantages of those findings, determine what they translate to using the strength, weaknesses, opportunities and threats analysis mechanism (use a table to differentiate the strength, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. Activities to be analysed using SWOT method include:

  • Economic activities: Business (shops, car sale lot, fry cleaners, offices etc),Industrial and Commercial, Agriculture

  • Community facilities: Place of instruction, Place of Public worship, Social Halls, place of Amusement

  • Institutional: Banks and medical consulting rooms

  • Residential: Dwelling house, Dwelling Units and Residential building

  • Public Garage

  • Cemeteries

  • Public Open space (passive and active)

  • Public transport: Taxis, buses, South African rail (trains)l and Aerodrome

  • Pedestrian walkway

Take each applicable activity and formulate a SWOT Analyses.For example: Economic Activities include Business, commercial, industrial, Agriculture etc.

Economic activity: Businesses


  • Both economies in the area do exist

  • First economy activities in the area include : shops, banks, doctors room

  • Second economy include street vendors, spaza shops and other small home based businesses


  • Businesses are not accessible, not integrated as result travelling become expensive and time consuming.

  • Hand to mouth transaction, not using backing facilities and do not conform to taxation laws as a result they do not contribute toward the GDP


  • Both economies can learn to co-exist help each other to grow.

  • There is adequate land for intensification of economic activities

  • Development of SDF can control and manage growth better.


  • Unregulated and not monitored businesses and illegal occupation of vacant land by vendors.

  • There are signs of business migrating to areas of more activities and opportunities e.g. cities

2. Infrastructure and Service provision: Sanitation


  • Few Ventilated improved pit latrine toilets have been installed


  • Not all areas have access to the Ventilated Improved toilets

  • 25 hired toilets servicing 25 people in Hekpoort CBD

  • No proper sanitation provided as some use riverbanks to relieve themselves.


Municipality has a plan in place to formalise the area and build permanent structures


  • If people have limited access to decent toilets it may result in many diseases in the area

  • Negatively challenges “ right to dignity and proper service” as enshrined in the Constitution

Once the analyses is completed, results can be presented in the following format:

  • Charts

  • Graphs

  • Column

  • Photographs and Maps

For example:

Map below illustrated Economic status,It is presented using both a map and charts reflecting the information obtained during the land use survey. The information must always correspond with the information on the SWOT Analyses.

Once the information has been analysed using the above attributes, it needs to be translated and possible interventions need to be formulated
2.5 STEP 4: Strategies and Interventions
2.5.1 Develop strategies/interventions

  • Establish relevant strategies to be used dealing with challenges identified.



Proposed Intervention

Insufficient underground water for livestock and human consumption.

Skewed / poor delivery of services

Consider dam water from Molatedi or Vaalkop or even earthern dams for livestock
Get DWAF and/or the mines to provide funding for the pipeline between Mokgalwaneng and the new proposed livestock handling facility

Services accessible in the nearby Limpopo province not available to people (Inter provincial cooperation in terms of IGF structures poor e.g. health, home affairs, police est.)

Expensive services

Negotiate inter provincial services (at a fee if need be)

Profiles of households and poverty indices not available at the time of planning

Projects could not be properly conceptualised

Family profiles will be developed during 2009/10

Challenges Cont...

Table 4: IDP Projects
Once SDF Projects are identified and prioritised,

  • Compare the SDF project list with the IDP list and highlight all SDF projects that are already part of the IDP Projects list, funded and none funded.

  • In a table form list SDF project that are not part of the IDP list and categorise them. For example:

  • Priority 1 - Water and Sanitation

  • Priority 2 - Roads and Storm Water,

  • Priority 3 - Economic Development

  • Priority 4 - Land and Housing Development,

  • Priority 5 - Institutional Development

  • Priority 6 - Electricity

2.6. STEP 5: Mapping
2.6.1 Mapping Standard for CRDP Reports
This section is additional and describes the general layout map template of a typical CRDP map that should be used for generating the CRDP status quo reports. A list of maps required for a CRDP study are listed below:

  • Map 1: Provincial Context

  • Map 2: District Municipal Context

  • Map 3: Local Municipal Context and Wards

  • Map 4a: Land Reform Projects (Municipal)

  • Map 4b: Land Restitution Claims (Municipal)

  • Map 5: Topography (Municipal)

  • Map 6: Land Capability (Municipal)

  • Map 7a: Geotechnical / Geology (Municipal)

  • Map 7b: Soil Potential / Land Type

  • Map 8: Mean Annual Rainfall

  • Map 9: Mean Maximum Annual Temperature

  • Map 10: Mean Minimum Annual Temperature

  • Map 11: Mean Frost duration / Occurrence

  • Map 12: Grazing Capacity

  • Map 13: Groundwater Yield

  • Map 14: Hydrology / Surface water

  • Map 15a: Land Use

  • Map 15b: Land Cover

  • Map 16: Schools and Health Facilities

  • Map 17: Transport Infrastructure

  • Map 18: Poverty Index (PIMD 2001) – wa?

  • Map 19: Biodiversity / Conservation / nature reserves / heritage

  • Map 20: SDF (optional)

  • Map 21: Eskom Electrification (optional)

  • Map 22: Economic Indicators (GAP2) (optional)

  • Map 23: Field Crop Boundaries (optional)

  • Map 24: Existing Municipal Projects from IDP (optional)

  • Map 25: Mining Areas / Mineral Potential (optional)

  • Map 26: Traditional Authorities (optional)

  • Map 27: Bulk Water Infrastructure (optional)

All maps should be generated on A4 size (Landscape orientation) for maximum effect. Legible text size on maps should be between 7 and 10, nothing smaller than 7. If the area is too complex, an A3 map should be produced that could be folded into a compact form within the status quo report.


Example of the standardised map template to be used for generating CRDP maps

The map template in Figure 4 above was created using ArcGIS 9.3. This template may need to be recreated in ArcGIS 9.3.1 due to versioning and stability problems. The map template has the following components:

  • Main Map (top right section), containing the main focus of the map (i.e. what it is depicting). It could use the topographic hillshade as backdrop, or alternatively, the SPOT 5 satellite imagery or aerial photography as in Figure 3 above.

  • Legend (top Left), containing legend items for main map. This legend is interactive, and should not be stored as graphic map elements

  • Locality Sketch (left, centre) , containing provincial boundaries with a bounding box (extent rectangle) for locating the CRDP study area within a municipality and province

  • Map number and title (Bottom bar), containing relevant map number and title as referred to in text. Projection information and Datum should be specified, as well as the date the map was created.

  • State Copyright notice (lower left), including the address of the unit that created the map.

2.6.2 Photography

This section should contain photos taken of the CRDP study area during the initial site visit, as well as during the land use survey. Particular issues that impact on the community should be highlighted. A digital camera of at least 5.1 megapixels would be sufficient for photographing the area. The current industry standard for digital cameras is 12.1 megapixels
State what is required to ensure that Chapter 4 is realised improving the status quo of the area. Each CRDP study area will have recommendations that are unique depending on a particular area, hence no generic set of recommendations can be made. The recommendations should inform the development of the spatial plan. Recommendation must be tangible, measurable and realistic.
