dc.description.abstract This paper investigates Transit Oriented Development (TOD) in the context of Cape Town focusing on the case study area of Bellville. This investigation seeks to answer questions relating to the implementation of TOD such as: How to translate metropolitan TOD principles and development objectives into local area interventions? How to implement TOD on the ground in the Bellville Central Area? How do we get buy-in from the private sector? The research was conducted using the case study method and various primary and secondary data collection techniques were used. These techniques comprised of a policy analysis, a contextual analysis of the case study area, a conceptual framework that included a targeted literature review, international and local precedent studies, semi-structured interviews with key informants, and surveys. These techniques assisted with the formulation of the TOD local area spatial development framework and associated catalytic projects for the Bellville Central Area. This dissertation proposes TOD catalytic projects geared towards the established vision for the Bellville Central Area to become a vibrant, diverse and an interconnected TOD node, with a unique sense of place within the city. Furthermore, policy recommendations in the form of a TOD district overlay zone are proposed in order to ensure effective regulatory controls for the Bellville Central Area which includes: development zones (Intensification zones, active zones and transition zones), pro-active planning and streamlined development applications, transport management tools such as a parking management system and pricing strategy, as well as informal street trading, and crime and safety strategies geared towards improved urban management for the area. en_ZA
