Cultural Clusters as a Local Economic Development Strategy in Rural Small-Town Areas: Sarah Baartman District in South Africa

, Bathurst, Nieu-Bethesda and Kenton-on-Sea). These types of towns are the threshold as they have a good level of pre-existing infrastructure and a decent number of existing CCIs on which they can expand. This means that for them, CCI-led development is more likely to be a viable option for local economic development. The high-CCI municipalities exceed the threshold and so are even more likely to be able to foster CCI-led development. These classifications of municipalities based on their numbers of CCIs show that there is a diversity that exists in rural areas with

The spatial pattern of voter choice homogeneity in the Nigerian presidential elections of the fourth republic

( Geoda, 2005 ; Anselin, Syabri, Kho, 2006 ). Religious diversity is generally measured as the probability that two randomly chosen individuals are not of the same religion. Thus, a Herfindahl-type fractionalisation index, HI = Σxi 2 , was used to measure it (see Yamamura, 2011 ). It is expected that the higher the religious diversity index, the less religiously heterogeneous a state is, i.e., the more religiously homogeneous the state and the more similar the voter choice in that state and vice versa . Multivariate regression analysis was done with the VCH as the

(1999) , Jenks et al. (1996) , Holden (2004) , Hoyer and Holden (2003, 2001 ), Mclaren (1992) and Banister (1992) , who discuss this process as an interaction between social and technical solutions for sustainable cities. Sustainable settlements are developed based on some important criteria: high density and integrated land use ( Kenworthy, 2006 ); the diversity of activities ( Jacobs, 2002 ); mixed land use or heterogeneous zoning; compactness of built environment ( Rudolf et al., 2017 ); sustainable transportation ( Acioly, 2000 ); passive solar design
