Comment on the City’s draft By-law relating to the Repeal of By-Laws adopted by Former Municipalities<span> <h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​About the by-law </h2></span> <p> We are required, in terms of section 15 of the Local Government: Municipal Systems Act, 2000, to keep an updated copy of our Municipal Code. To do this, we need to remove outdated legislation that is no longer applicable. </p><p>There are already two City By-laws relating to the Repeal of By-laws adopted by Former Municipalities, namely:</p><ul><li> <a href="" target="_blank">By-law Relating to the Repeal of By-laws Adopted by Former Municipalities, 2007</a> </li><li> <a href="" target="_blank">By-law Relating to the Repeal of By-laws Adopted by Former Municipalities, 2016</a></li></ul><p>This will be the third and last by-law of its kind. </p><p> Recent research has shown that there are still numerous by-laws that were promulgated by former municipalities which have been incorporated into the City, and are still regarded as being in force today. </p><p>Most of these by-laws have been replaced with modern or updated by-laws or by national or provincial laws but have not yet been repealed by the City. Consequently, these by-laws still technically form part of the Municipal Code of the City and need to be repealed. </p><p> In terms of section 17 of the Local Government: Municipal Systems Act, Act 32 of 2000, you can submit comments to the municipality in respect of the draft by-law. </p><h4>Access the documents:</h4><ul><li> <a href="" target="_blank">Draft Repeal By-law, 2023</a><br></li><li> <a href="" target="_blank">Schedule to the By-Law relating to the Repeal of By-Laws adopted by Former Municipalities</a>.</li><li> <a href="">Bellville Municipality</a></li><li> <a href="">Brackenfell Municipality</a><br></li><li> <a href="">City of Cape Town</a><br></li><li> <a href="">Durbanville Municipality</a><br></li><li> <a href="">Fish Hoek Municipality</a><br></li><li> <a href="">Goodwood Municipality</a><br></li><li> <a href="">Gordon's Bay Municipality</a><br></li><li> <a href="">Helderberg Municipality</a><br></li><li> <a href="">Kraaifontein Municipality</a><br></li><li> <a href="">Kuils River Municipality</a><br></li><li> <a href="">Milnerton Municipality</a><br></li><li> <a href="">Parow Municipality</a><br></li><li> <a href="">Pinelands Municipality</a><br></li><li> <a href="">Simon's Town Municipality</a><br></li><li> <a href="">Somerset West Municipality</a><br></li><li> <a href="">Strand Municipality</a><br></li></ul> <span> <h2 class="sectHeading">Comment period</h2></span> <span> <div class="notification with-heading dark-copy pink bg-light-grey"><div class="graphic with-border"> <i class="info note">​​​</i> </div><div class="desc"><h4>Please note</h4><p>The comment period closed on 30 November 2023.
