Diepsloot Informal Settlement!

Diepsloot, Afrikaans for “deep ditch”, is a densely populated township in the north of Johannesburg. It is located in the newly formed Region A (formerly regions 1 and 2).

It is made up of fully government-subsidised housing (Extensions 4, 5, 6, 9, 10), brick houses built by landowners (Extensions 2 and 7), partially government subsidised houses (Extension 3/Tanganani) as well as shacks (the biggest sections being Extensions 1, 12 and 13).

A large proportion (45,5%) of residents rent their property from a landowner who has subdivided their stand.
