03 DECEMBER 2008
To expedite land use applications and building plan approvals, the City of Cape Town’s Planning and Building Development Management (PBDM) Department has consolidated into eight offices, the 17 offices it inherited when seven separate municipalities were combined into the Unicity in December 2000.
Cheryl Walters, Director: Planning and Building Development Management, said: “The implementation of the Eight District Model will see a more equitable distribution of resources, knowledge and skills and enable us to provide a more efficient and comprehensive service.
This includes the submission and processing of building plans and land use applications, advice and building inspection functions, environmental, heritage, GIS, spatial and urban design information.
