"On 25 April 2018, Council approved the City’s revised Municipal Spatial Development Framework (MSDF) which pursues a new spatial form for Cape Town.

The SAHRC Report: Transformation at Public Universities in South Africa "encompasses a record of the systemic challenges that hinder the attainment of substantive transformation in higher education and therefore constitutes an important tool for assessing progress in attaining substantive transformation in this sector. Moreover, the recommendations contained in this Report may be used to contribute to the transformation processes currently underway in many of our public universities. For this reason, therefore, it is hoped that despite the delay in the finalisation of the Report, it will receive due consideration from all stakeholders involved in the transformation project."
