Housing production involves the processes and methods employed to construct or transform inputs like land, labour, capital, physical infrastructure, policies, ideas and information into dwellings. However, land as a major input is currently not well managed to facilitate housing production at scale due to lack of integration across land administration functions: land tenure, land value, land use and land development. The study on which this paper is based argues that the existing poor level of integration (in the context of policies, sub-functions, processes and spatial data services) across the four land administration functions and between levels of government impedes land delivery for housing production. This paper uses the organisation of housing production as the context to develop an analytical tool for understanding the integration across the land administration functions. The methodology is underpinned by the land management paradigm. Through the preliminary results from the case studies, an analytical framework is developed as a tool to develop a national integration assessment framework. This will provide an enabling platform to explore and improve the integration across the four land administration functions and between the different levels of government. Further studies are required to empirically test and validate the framework.
