The Gauteng Department of Human Settlements’ vision, mission and values for the sixth term of administration are informed by the following principles: consistent mandate of the Department regarding integrated and sustainable human settlements; undertaking by government to improve on its successes over the past 25 years, and the previous fifth term of administration in particular; strategic paradigm shift away from sporadic and uncoordinated development to purposefully planned and developed mega projects that are completely self-sufficient in providing for the housing, social and economic needs of the community; development of human settlements that mainstream economic development, and social cohesion, consolidate inter-governmental, stakeholder collaboration and relationships; achieving the outcome of a spatially just and transformed space economy that enables equal access to social services and economic opportunities in cities, regions and rural areas. This emphasis has been based on the fact that "spatial integration, human settlements and local government” is one of the seven national priorities as mentioned in the State of the Nation Address, which also state that efforts to identify and release public land that is suitable for smart, urban settlements will be accelerated. This is in alignment with the five provincial priorities for the sixth term of administration as mentioned in the State of the Province Address, namely, "integrated mega human settlements and land release”.
