The DMS states, amongst other things, the land uses and development rules for all zonings.</p><h4>In other words:</h4><ul><li>the purpose for which land is or may be used lawfully; and </li><li>the provisions, restrictions and/or conditions that sets out the extent of the land use allowed in terms of a zoning.</li></ul><p>In addition, the DMS provides the definitions, interpretations, general provisions and overlay zonings that may be applicable. </p><p>In terms of section 27 of the MPBL, which commenced on 1 July 2015, the DMS must be reviewed at least every five years. We intend to review the DMS now, and we would like to include you in the process. The MPBL will also be reviewed at the same time. </p><p>All comments or suggestions we receive will be considered for inclusion in the review process.​</p> <span> <div class="notification with-heading dark-copy pink bg-light-grey"><div class="graphic with-border"> <i class="info toptip">​​​</i> </div><div class="desc"><h4>Top tip</h4><p> Comments and suggestions must align with approved <a href="https://www.capetown.gov.za/policies">Council policies, plans, strategies</a> and the <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>.
