ISSUES DRDLR RESPONSE
APPEALS Is the proposed internal Appeal Mechanism in the current version of the Bill adequate? This section requires review. The department will make a submission with recommended changes. While the provisions of Section 62 of the MSA with regard to the appeal rights of an applicant will remain in place, the Bill makes a wider provision for aggrieved parties (which may include applicants, objectors or other persons whose rights are affected) to appeal against the decisions of Municipal Planning Tribunals Section 51. This provision constitutes a superior appeal mechanism than Section 62 of the MSA.

This provision constitutes a superior appeal mechanism than Section 62 of the MSA.
APPEALS Options for appeal mechanisms? This section requires review. The department will make a submission with recommended changes. While the provisions of Section 62 of the MSA with regard to the appeal rights of an applicant will remain in place, the Bill makes a wider provision for aggrieved parties (which may include applicants, objectors or other persons whose rights are affected) to appeal against the decisions of Municipal Planning Tribunals Section 51. This provision constitutes a superior appeal mechanism than Section 62 of the MSA.
APPEALS May still resort to MSA Sec 62 appeal. This section requires review. The department will make a submission with recommended changes. While the provisions of Section 62 of the MSA with regard to the appeal rights of an applicant will remain in place, the Bill makes a wider provision for aggrieved parties (which may include applicants, objectors or other persons whose rights are affected) to appeal against the decisions of Municipal Planning Tribunals Section 51.

This provision constitutes a superior appeal mechanism than Section 62 of the MSA.
APPEALS No provision for appeal to external/independent body. This section requires review. The department will make a submission with recommended changes. While the provisions of Section 62 of the MSA with regard to the appeal rights of an applicant will remain in place, the Bill makes a wider provision for aggrieved parties (which may include applicants, objectors or other persons whose rights are affected) to appeal against the decisions of Municipal Planning Tribunals Section 51. This provision constitutes a superior appeal mechanism than Section 62 of the MSA.
APPEALS S 51 (3) negates the right of appeal. This section requires review. The department will make a submission with recommended changes.

ISSUES DRDLR RESPONSE
DECISION MAKING BODIES Can Councillors be excluded from decision making on Land Development? Bill makes specific provisions for a body to deal with municipal decisions on development applications. This is an administrative function which occurs within the policy framework established by Councillors (SDF) and is therefore best dealt with by officials/appointees of Council. The Department has explained the provisions regarding the composition, powers and functions of the Municipal Planning Tribunal in public engagements. The exclusion of Councillors is contentious but the Department supports this approach. Provisions permitting external members require review.
DECISION MAKING BODIES Provisions of the Bill preventing elected officials from serving on municipal planning tribunals are inconsistent with section 160 of the Constitution.

ISSUES DRDLR RESPONSE
REPEAL OF LAWS Bill does not do enough to transform the current spatial planning and land use management regulatory environment. The Bill provides a consistent national framework within which provinces and municipalities will be able to legislate for and execute spatial planning and land use management within their respective spheres. The Bill is not able to repeal other national legislation that is not within the purview of the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform. This rationalisation process will be achieved through provincial legislation. The Bill is also not able to repeal provincial legislation (e.g. provincial ordinances) as planning is a concurrent national and provincial competence.
REPEAL OF LAWS Legislative vacuum until new provincial laws enacted and ordinances repealed include model provincial legislation and by-laws for municipalities. The Bill provides a consistent national framework within which provinces and municipalities will be able to legislate for and execute spatial planning and land use management within their respective spheres. The Bill is not able to repeal other national legislation that is not within the purview of the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform. This rationalisation process will be achieved through provincial legislation. The Bill is also not able to repeal provincial legislation (e.g. provincial ordinances) as planning is a concurrent national and provincial competence.
REPEAL OF LAWS Need to identify all national and provincial legislation dealing with spatial planning and land use management and how legislation will be repealed.

ISSUES DRDLR RESPONSE
INTERFACE WITH PROVINCIAL LEGISLATION There is no linking mechanism in the Bill to tie it to respective provincial legislation, other than as suggested in Schedule 1 Sections 4, 5, 9 and 10 of the Bill deal with provincial legislation. Provinces have concurrent powers to regulate matters provided for in Schedules 4 and 5 to the Constitution. The National Act will provide a framework within which Provinces will create legislation that will respond to specific provincial requirements and circumstances. In the interim period while Provinces are preparing their legislation, municipalities will comply directly with the National Act. Eventually, regulation of municipal spatial planning and land use management will occur through Provincial Acts, which will flow from and be consistent with the National Spatial Planning and Land Use Management Act.
INTERFACE WITH PROVINCIAL LEGISLATION Bill provides for municipal SDFs as part of municipal planning however MSDFs will always have regional and/or provincial effects. This unduly complicates the planning regime Sections 4, 5, 9 and 10 of the Bill deal with provincial legislation. Provinces have concurrent powers to regulate matters provided for in Schedules 4 and 5 to the Constitution. The National Act will provide a framework within which Provinces will create legislation that will respond to specific provincial requirements and circumstances. In the interim period while Provinces are preparing their legislation, municipalities will comply directly with the National Act. Eventually, regulation of municipal spatial planning and land use management will occur through Provincial Acts, which will flow from and be consistent with the National Spatial Planning and Land Use Management Act.
INTERFACE WITH PROVINCIAL LEGISLATION Provincial interest is still unclear. Sections 4, 5, 9 and 10 of the Bill deal with provincial legislation. Provinces have concurrent powers to regulate matters provided for in Schedules 4 and 5 to the Constitution. The National Act will provide a framework within which Provinces will create legislation that will respond to specific provincial requirements and circumstances.

Eventually, regulation of municipal spatial planning and land use management will occur through Provincial Acts, which will flow from and be consistent with the National Spatial Planning and Land Use Management Act.
INTERFACE WITH PROVINCIAL LEGISLATION Provincial interest is undefined and may very well encroach on municipal planning. Sections 4, 5, 9 and 10 of the Bill deal with provincial legislation. Provinces have concurrent powers to regulate matters provided for in Schedules 4 and 5 to the Constitution. The National Act will provide a framework within which Provinces will create legislation that will respond to specific provincial requirements and circumstances. In the interim period while Provinces are preparing their legislation, municipalities will comply directly with the National Act. Eventually, regulation of municipal spatial planning and land use management will occur through Provincial Acts, which will flow from and be consistent with the National Spatial Planning and Land Use Management Act.
INTERFACE WITH PROVINCIAL LEGISLATION Bill, once enacted, should only be brought into operation after legislation has been enacted in each province. Sections 4, 5, 9 and 10 of the Bill deal with provincial legislation. Provinces have concurrent powers to regulate matters provided for in Schedules 4 and 5 to the Constitution. The National Act will provide a framework within which Provinces will create legislation that will respond to specific provincial requirements and circumstances. In the interim period while Provinces are preparing their legislation, municipalities will comply directly with the National Act. Eventually, regulation of municipal spatial planning and land use management will occur through Provincial Acts, which will flow from and be consistent with the National Spatial Planning and Land Use Management Act.
INTERFACE WITH PROVINCIAL LEGISLATION Need standardised regulation of content and procedures for preparation, adoption and amendment of provincial SDFs. Sections 4, 5, 9 and 10 of the Bill deal with provincial legislation. Provinces have concurrent powers to regulate matters provided for in Schedules 4 and 5 to the Constitution. The National Act will provide a framework within which Provinces will create legislation that will respond to specific provincial requirements and circumstances. In the interim period while Provinces are preparing their legislation, municipalities will comply directly with the National Act. Eventually, regulation of municipal spatial planning and land use management will occur through Provincial Acts, which will flow from and be consistent with the National Spatial Planning and Land Use Management Act.
INTERFACE WITH PROVINCIAL LEGISLATION SPLUMB does not establish adequate basis for intervention in provincial planning. Sections 4, 5, 9 and 10 of the Bill deal with provincial legislation. Provinces have concurrent powers to regulate matters provided for in Schedules 4 and 5 to the Constitution. The National Act will provide a framework within which Provinces will create legislation that will respond to specific provincial requirements and circumstances. In the interim period while Provinces are preparing their legislation, municipalities will comply directly with the National Act.

LEGAL STATUS OF SDFs SDFs are being elevated to the status of laws. The intention is not to have a hierarchy of SDFs but rather a set of plans that complement each other. Section 12 makes it clear that the purpose of the SDF in any sphere of government is to guide and inform, not regulate.

LEGAL STATUS OF SDFs SDFs are being elevated to the status of laws. The strategic and policy instrument (the SDF) is intended to guide and inform the legal instrument (the land use scheme). SPLUMB further makes provision for these instruments to be amended individually, and in relation to each other in terms of Section 21 (p) (ii) to ensure that they are mutually supportive. Furthermore, Section 21 (1) (o) of SPLUMB provides that a Municipal SDF must determine the purpose, desired impact and structure of the land use management system in the municipality. The Municipal SDF should not therefore be departed from lightly. Hence SPLUMB does not permit Municipal Planning Tribunals to depart from the guidance provided by a Municipal SDF without good cause, and requires that an amendment to the SDF be pursued.
