Masterplan

The Masterplan, the physical embodiment of Vision 2020, was launched in August 2006. The plan, devised in conjunction with Singapore–based urban design consultants Surbana, is aimed at creating an environment in which people live with dignity and have access to facilities – health, education, recreation and employment – thus enabling them to maximize their abilities and talents.

The 30–year Masterplan is based on a detailed assessment of the opportunities offered and constraints imposed by the 1 200km² of the land owned and controlled by the Royal Bafokeng and sets the direction of development by the year 2035. The plan takes into account the population on RBN land more than quadrupling to 700 000 people and aims to reduce dependency on mining for economic growth. Mine boundaries, State and privately–owned land are recognised as possible developmental constraints, but the proximity of Rustenburg to Bafokeng land opens up the potential for the development of a ‘business corridor’ linking the former with the latter. A major road, which traverses a portion of RBN land, is seen as an axis for the development of tourism activities between Sun City and the Pilanesberg National Park in the north and historic and scenic sites in the south.
