Guidelines for Human Settlement Planning and Design (The Red Book - Volume1)
This document provides performance-based guidelines for informed decision-making. The purpose is essentially to indicate the qualities that should be sought in South African settlements, and to provide practical guidance on how these qualities can be achieved. The document is therefore intended to be educative, providing ideas and useful information, and not as a substitute for innovative planning and engineering practice.
The Red book document consists of two volumes, with volume 1 focussing primarily on planning issues (chapters 1 to 5), and volume 2 (chapters 6 to 12) dealing with engineering services.
