dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study is to find factors which influenced the establishment of townships in South Africa, with special reference to Daveyton on the East Rand. Research has shown that townships in South Africa were established as a means of clearing the slum and squatter areas, that were mushrooming in and around towns and cities of South Africa. This was also in line with the policy of the South African Government of establishing racially segregated residential areas. Daveyton established in 1955 as a model township, was a means of providing proper accommodation to the inhabitants of the Apex squatter camp near Benoni, who were living in squalid conditions. The "site and service" scheme was implemented in Daveyton and families from the Apex squatter camp moved to Daveyton. The movement to Daveyton was voluntary. en_US
