  • Initiatives in inner city urban, peri-urban, township and high-density neighbourhoods that improve access for residents to a diverse range of facilities including education, health, recreational and retail services, and
  • Initiatives that improve the quality of public spaces in inner city urban, peri-urban, township and high-density residential environments, with particular emphasis on safety and cleanliness.

    • how the proposed activity will clearly contribute to an improved residential environment in terms of health, safety and/or social cohesion
    • how the proposed activity will improve access for residents of inner-city urban, peri-urban, township and high-density neighborhoods to improved facilities such as education, health, recreational and retail services
