|dc.description.abstract||The spatial expansion characteristic of modern cities is mainly concentrated along the edge of built-up urban areas. This intermingling of often incompatible urban and rural land uses leads to the development of a rural-urban fringe which often constitutes a problem area within the wider city structure. This paper evaluates the effect of urban expansion on the fringe zone from a reconstruction of successive land use patterns(1960 and 1977) for Cape Town. The nature of the process of areal urban expansion is detailed. Final urbanization is shown to be preceded by a preparatory phase in which typical fringe land use types are located along an ill-defined transition zone adjacent to the built-up urban boundary.-English summary|
