Dear NRPA member
In May, the NRPA EXCO met with Ossie Gonsalves, District Manager Planning – Southern District, The City of Cape Town, to ask him some questions. Attached is a copy of our questions and his responses. We draw your attention specifically to questions 4, 5, 6 and 14.
We are still trying to understand this area. We are working on fine-tuning our own procedure when asked to comment on Planning related applications and objections. Please understand that the NRPA EXCO view is only one view, of a number of views, taken into consideration when decisions are made.
Please note that some changes to how this works are being implemented from July so it is best to look for further information on the link to the Municipal Planning By-Laws, LUPA and SPLUMA .
