History of Midrand

Midrand Information > Midrand History

Midrand grew from two urban complexes: Halfway House and Olifantsfontein. In the early 1980s, these were joined under a single administration. Ivory Park, a planned informal settlement nearby, is an impoverished community and poverty eradication, development, job opportunities, economic growth and improved quality of life the main concerns. Ivory Park was established in 1991 to provide site and service stands to address the overflow of people from nearby Tembisa and other urban areas.

Midrand was established as a Local Municipality in 1981, but was incorporated into Region 2 of the City of Johannesburg during the late 1990's and as of 2006, when the number of regions where reduced to seven, it forms part of Region A. Midrand officially ceased to exist in 1998 when Act 15 of 1981 Town Council of Midrand Act was repealed by Act 10 of 1998 Rationalisation of Local Government Affairs Act

Though there is no longer an official Midrand, the name is still on common use to denote the suburbs around the N1 highway north of the Jukskei River up to the border with Tshwane.
