Dweller control discussed at the UFS
2008-10-24

 

 Prof. Lochner Marais, from the Centre for Development Support at the University of the Free State (UFS), recently delivered his inaugural lecture on the Main Campus in Bloemfontein. The title of the lecture was: "Dweller control: The missing link in South African housing policy". According to Prof. Marais the concept of dweller control has not been adequately translated into policy. “Very few people have any say in the planning, design and cost implications of their housing units. If the housing process does not make provision for dweller control and the management thereof, people will not appreciate what the state has given them. There is too much state involvement and control," said Prof. Marais. Here are, from the left: Prof. Marais, Prof. Teuns Verschoor, Acting Rector of the UFS, Prof. Lucius Botes, head of the Centre for Development Support, and Prof. Tienie Crous, Acting Vice-Rector: Academic Operations at the UFS.
