Services Spatial Planning Human Settlements

“What is the city but the people?”

~William Shakespeare, from the play Coriolanus


MCA has a broad involvement in human settlement planning and policy. Our experience ranges from preparing densification and integration strategies for the Department of Environmental Affairs and Development Planning to preparing integrated housing plans for district municipalities.

MCA’s philosophy concerning development of human settlements revolves around the three dynamics: people, place and opportunity. In other words, our aim is to promote the achievement of a non-racial, integrated society (people) through the development of sustainable human settlements and quality housing (place) while promoting opportunities for social and economic development and environmentally friendly design.
