LOCAL AUTHORITY NOTICE
CITY OF JOHANNESBURG METROPOLITAN MUNICIPALITY
Notice is hereby given in terms of Section 20 (3) Of the Spatial Planning and Land Use Management Act 2013 (Act No. 16 of 2013) that the City, at its Ordinary Council meeting on 26 August 2021, declared its intention to review its Spatial Development Framework 2040 (SDF2040).
Spatial Development Frameworks are described by the Municipal Systems Act 2000 (Act No. 32 of 2000) as an important component of integrated development planning for municipalities. They have further been mandated by the Spatial Planning and Land Use Management Act 2013 (Act No. 16 of 2013). The latter further speaks to requirements on the review (that being, at least after a 5 year period from the date of approval).
This review of the City of Johannesburg’s SDF2040 is intended to update the 2016 approved version. The SDF2040 details spatial policies, strategies, and implementation mechanisms that seek to address the City’s key spatial challenges as well as measures in attaining the City’s growth and development targets.
In this regard, public input is hereby being sought on the draft review: Spatial Development Framework 2040.
A copy of the draft review Spatial Development Framework 2040 will be available for inspection, during normal office hours for 120 days from the date of publication of this notice at the Metropolitan Centre at the Group Legal & Contracts Department’s Reception at 158 Civic Boulevard, Braamfontein, 3rd Floor, A-Block.
An electronic copy of the draft review Spatial Development Framework 2040 is also available for download at the following address: https://bit.ly/sdf-draft-2021
