Wards In Pigg's Peak

In townships, boundaries around properties are generally more common and usually follow survey lines strictly. In the informal areas, boundaries around homesteads are not common and do not necessarily follow survey lines / coordinates if present.

a map of the Piggs Peak Town Council WardsPlot sizes in the formal areas range from 465mē to 1,500mē. This can be expected since land cost is usually determined by square metre (anything from 70 to 120 Emalangeni per square metre) and therefore the larger the plot, the more expensive in land value (this apply specifically to urban areas).

Population densities are approximately 4 - 9 people per hectare in the various wards. It is markedly higher in ward 2, at approximately 25 persons per hectare. This can be attributed to the fact that ward two has a disproportionately high number of informal dwellings, which normally has a higher density than formalized towns.

Wards 3, 4 and 5 boast the highest comparative land value, the overall value of land ranges between 50,000 to 60,000 Emalangeni per plot, although land value decreases considerably for ward 1. This could be attributed to the fact that other townships are well-serviced with infrastructure such as paved roads, kerbing, street lighting, etc., whereas ward 1 has a large informal area and much lower service provision (if at all).
