Abstract: Economic expansions generally mean that more natural resources will be used. Apart from increasing pressure on the environment, an array of social and institutional implications is also associated with the expansions. This is especially true for inland industrial complexes in South Africa. The social and economic benefits warrant the government support of such industrial complexes, but the negative consequences, for present and future generations, need to be considered in a comprehensive manner to govern the complexes. The study subsequently set out to determine what constitutes the sustainability of an inland industrial complex with respect to governance issues.
