Abstract

The paper argues that affordability of land and housing ownership is largely affected by cumbersome land transfer processes and an uncertain building permit approval process. By using Dowall's land market assessment methodology, the paper examines land price changes and land conversion patterns in the East-West Corridor region between 1989 and 1993. An examination of institutional and regulatory constraints suggests that land prices are likely to increase in the future when demand conditions become more favourable
