Notice is hereby given in terms of section 28(3) and 29 of the Municipal Systems Act,2000 (Act 32 of 2000), section 20 of the Spatial Planning and Land Use Act, 2013 (Act 16 of 2013), section 11 of the Western Cape Land Use Planning Act, 2014 (Act 13 of 2014) and section 3(2)(a) and (b) of the Langeberg Municipality: Land Use Planning By-Law, 2015 that Langeberg Municipality intends to rewrite its Municipal Spatial Development Framework (MSDF).
A MSDF is a long-term forward planning document which spatially indicates the long-term growth and development path of a municipality.
It co-ordinates the spatial implications of all strategic sector plans (engineering, transport, economic, housing, community services etc.) of a municipality.
A MSDF is also one of the core components of a municipal IDP and gives physical effect to the vision, goals and objectives of the municipal IDP.
Once completed, the MSDF will be approved in terms of the Municipal Systems Act, 2000 (Act 32 of 2000) and will serve as a guide to decision making in development and land use planning.
In terms of section 11(b) of the Land Use Planning Act, 2014 (Act 3 of 2014), the Municipality has not established an Intergovernmental Steering Committee.
A Project Committee, which is responsible for the re-write of the MSDF, has been established in terms of section 4 of the Langeberg Municipality: Land Use Planning By-Law, 2015.
This committee must adhere to the procedural requirements outlined in section 13 of LUPA and section 7 of the Langeberg Municipality: Land Use Planning By-Law 2015.
A draft MSDF will be prepared and advertised for comment in due course and all stakeholders/interested parties will be given 60 days to comment.
