Open for public comment: Draft Land Use Scheme

On 29 June, the council approved the draft land use scheme, a tool that regulates the zoning of each property in the City.

Joburg’s MMC for Development Planning, Funzela Ngobeni told council that the scheme is an important tool that affects the daily activities of residents and property owners by prescribing rules related to how properties should be developed and used.

The public consultation campaign for the draft scheme is the next step to its final approval. After the public has given input on the draft document, it will be taken to council for approval.

The draft scheme will be open to public consultation for 60 days. Copies of the document will be available for inspection during normal office hours until 13 October.
