CoCT to implement the new Transport and Urban Development Authority

With the reshuffle of it's members, Cllr Brett Herron, Mayco member for Transport and Urban Development, has started to implement the new Transport and Urban Development Authority.

Speaking to CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies, Heron says the new transport and urban development is about structuring the City to tackle inefficiency and inequality.

What we have done is to combine the functions of transport, spatial planning and elements of the human settlements department, a department that will be developing new housing.
