The Coloured Persons Communal Reserves Act of 1961, was an Apartheid South Africa piece of legislation, which was enacted to apply the Mission Stations and Communal Reserves Act 1909, of the Cape of Good Hope, to coloured persons settlement areas within the meaning of the Coloured Persons Settlement Areas (Cape) Act, 1930, to repeal the latter Act and to provide for matters incidental thereto.[1][1]

This Act further strengthened racial segregation legislation of South Africa during the Apartheid regime.[2]

Key Effect of Legislation

The Coloured Persons Communal Rerserves Act, had the effect of lowering wages by denying Africans rights within urban areas and by keeping their families and dependants on subsistence plots in the reserves.[2]


The act was repealed by the Abolition of Racially Based Land Measures Act, 1991 on 30 June 1991.
