Extending Themselves

This chapter discusses the impact of transformation on conserving housing that would otherwise be near the end of its economic life if left unrestored, and demonstrates the level of upgrading which has taken place in the study areas by examining the physical conditions and servicing levels that have been produced. The plan forms that result from transformation are examined and shown to contribute to the continuity of families by allowing the next generation to occupy them conveniently. The chapter also examines the tendency for transformations to supply accommodation that would otherwise be found in the periphery of cities, and, at the same time, considers the tendency to crowd too much accommodation onto the available plot space.

Keywords:   government-built housing, low-income housing, continuity of families, accommodation, crowding
