dc.description.abstract This paper presents findings on the critical factors which affect the delivery of low-income housing in South Africa and the effect of these factors on the residents’ satisfaction with their housing units. Data used in the study was obtained through a Delphi Study, where the views of housing experts were solicited on the critical factors which affect low-income housing delivery in South Africa. Since panellists form the cornerstone of the Delphi Technique, clear inclusion criteria were applied and also as a means of evaluating the results and establishing the study’s potential relevance to other settings and populations. Hence, each expert was required to meet at least five benchmarks. These include the length of residency in South Africa, educational background amongst others. Results emanating from the study revealed that seven factors were considered critical by the experts after consensus was achieved. Amongst these include: limited budget (dwindling tax base) and the lack of appropriate policy to handle informal settlement upgrading, etc. The study contributes to the body of knowledge on the subject where no consensus has been reached pertaining to the critical factors affecting the delivery of low-income housing in South Africa. A limitation of the study was the reliance on a structured questionnaire survey in the three iterative rounds of Delphi technique to reach consensus and experts were not allowed to add any more indicators. en_US
