This paper expounds the need to return to a normative position in post apartheid Cape Town that engenders a developmental agenda from the highest political levels to the immediacy of critical delivery, including accessing the needs of local people. It argues for a long term view on making urban form and infrastructure to a level of such robustness and flexibility that it can change as it must, yet remain timeless in its fundamental make-up. The paper examines the urban form and infrastructure of Cape Town twenty years hence, i.e. to 2025, based on two scenarios: the Business As Usual (BAU) scenario and the Sustainable Development (SD) scenario.
