The purpose of this spatial plan is to re-establish this once vibrant neighbourhood, to create a sense of belonging, and to establish a multicultural community.</p><p>‘The next phase of this process is a public realm study, which will assist us in identifying the public open spaces in District Six. The public realm is the spaces between buildings such as streets, squares, green spaces, and pedestrian areas that are freely accessible to people.</p><p>‘We all know that a community forms over time. We become a community in the places where we meet, mostly outside of our homes, and most often by chance. A community is shaped on our streets where we stop and greet, where we pass acquaintances on our way to the shop or work.</p><p>‘A community does not exist in a building. Community happens outside of our homes, in the public space, in what is often called the public realm. A community is where we recognise each other as passing individuals, but also as one when we come together. </p><p>‘At this virtual meeting on 29 June 2021, the City will inform residents about how we intend to collaborate with the community about the public realm – how we can shape and form the future District Six community with public open spaces; what we want these spaces to look like, how we want to use them, and how we want them to connect us with one another, and the other surrounding neighbourhoods. All are invited to attend, and I am encouraging residents to please make use of this opportunity,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Spatial Planning and Environment, Alderman Marian Nieuwoudt.</p><p><br><strong>End</strong></p>2021-06-26T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#0ab901dc-08fc-4328-86e9-d67d3a0317b4;L0|#00ab901dc-08fc-4328-86e9-d67d3a0317b4|spacial planning and land use management;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#2ef9fdb7-d389-4197-b805-e724fe1e5ca4;L0|#02ef9fdb7-d389-4197-b805-e724fe1e5ca4|district10
