Comment on the review of the City's District Spatial Development and Environmental Management Frameworks<span> <h2 class="sectHeading">About</h2></span> <p>District SDFs and EMFs set the planning and spatial vision for the City’s <a href="https://www.capetown.gov.za/work%20and%20business/planning-portal/Spatial-Plans-and-Frameworks/district-plans">eight planning districts</a>, namely: Table Bay; Blaauwberg; Southern; Northern; Cape Flats; Helderberg; Tygerberg; Mitchells Plain, Khayelitsha and Greater Blue Downs. </p><p>The draft DSDFs and EMFs seek to apply the development requirements of the <a href="https://www.capetown.gov.za/work%20and%20business/planning-portal/regulations-and-legislations/cape-town-spatial-development-framework">Cape Town Municipal Spatial Development Framework</a> at a district and sub-district scale. </p><h4>An integrated District SDF and EMF is an important planning document, because it:</h4><ul><li>Translates the City's <a href="https://www.capetown.gov.za/Family%20and%20home/Meet-the-City/our-vision-for-the-city/the-citys-idp-2017-2022">Integrated Development Plan (IDP) </a>and strategic priorities to specific geographic areas; </li><li>Provides certainty to developers, communities and city directorates; </li><li>Enables land-use decision-making; </li><li>Creates value for property owners; </li><li>Enables spatial transformation in a managed and coordinated manner; and </li><li>Creates opportunities for development.</li></ul><p>In 2019, we invited you to comment on the district SDF baseline and analysis reports (BaAR)​. In this round of public participation, we invite you to comment on the district SDF and EMF technical reports and implementation plans.</p><p>In terms of section 17 of the Local Government: Municipal Systems Act, Act 32 of 2000; Chapter 3 of the City of Cape Town Municipal Planning By-Law (2015); and Chapter 5 Section 24 (2) (c), (d) and (e) of the National Environmental Management Act, 1998 (Act No. 108 of 1998) (NEMA); the NEMA Environmental Management Framework Regulations (2010); and the Environmental Impact Assessment Regulations (2014, as amended), you may submit comments, recommendations or input to the municipality.</p> <span> <div class="infographic bg-font-adjust-bg">​​​​​​​​​​ <figure><img class="responsive" alt="placeholder" src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Inline%20Images/District_SDF_Review.jpg" /></figure><figcaption> <p> <span class="infoGraphicSpan"> <strong>access the draft documents<br></strong></span><br>​​Access the draft Integrated District SDFs and EMFs</p> <a title="title" class="btn dark-blue" href="https://www.capetown.gov.za/work%20and%20business/planning-portal/Spatial-Plans-and-Frameworks/spatial-development-framework-review"><i class="icon download"></i>access</a> </figcaption> </div></span> <h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​Comment period​​​​​​​</h2><p>Submit your comments from <strong> 6 April - 29 May 2021</strong>.</p><h2 class="sectHeading">Open days</h2><p>Attend one of our open days for the opportunity to view the plans and ask City officials any questions you may have.
