By-law Enforcement in South African Cities

This paper will attempt to sketch the developments in by-law enforcement in the four major cities in South Africa, and in doing so, shall firstly examine the rationale behind by-law enforcement with specific reference to enabling legislation for such enforcement to take place. Secondly, the above examination will be carried out with reference to renewed attempts aimed at reviving metropolitan centers in South Africa. Finally, the importance of the relationship between effective by-law enforcement (aimed at making cities clean and habitable) for safety and security will be spelt out.
