Proposed categories of minor Planning by-law contraventions exempt from penalty applications<span> <h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​About</h2></span> <p>If you are in contravention of the provisions of our <a href="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/documentcentre/Documents/Bylaws%20and%20policies/Municipal_Planning_Amendment_Bylaw_2019_Consolidated.pdf" target="_blank">Municipal Planning By-law, 2015 (MPBL)</a> , you can apply for the necessary approval to rectify the contravention. However, before we can consider your application, you must apply for and pay an administrative penalty, determined in terms of section 129 of the MPBL. </p><p>With authorisation from section 130(5) of the MPBL, we are proposing categories of minor contraventions which will be exempt from these provisions. In other words, if your contravention falls into one of the proposed categories, you will not be required to submit an administrative penalty application in order to rectify the contravention. </p><p>By eliminating the need to submit additional applications for the rectification of minor contraventions, the process will be simplified for the <a href="https://www.capetown.gov.za/Departments/Development%20Management%20Department">Development Management Department</a> and property owners. </p><p> Notice is given in accordance with section 17 of the Local Government: Municipal Systems Act, Act 32 of 2000, that you can submit comments in respect of the proposed categories. </p><h4>Access the documents below:</h4><ul><li>Advert (<a href="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/documentcentre/Documents/Forms%2c%20notices%2c%20tariffs%20and%20lists/HYS_PENALTY_EXEMPTIONS_EN.pdf" target="_blank">English</a> | <a href="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/documentcentre/Documents/Forms%2c%20notices%2c%20tariffs%20and%20lists/HYS_PENALTY_EXEMPTIONS_AF.pdf" target="_blank">Afrikaans</a> | <a href="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/documentcentre/Documents/Forms%2c%20notices%2c%20tariffs%20and%20lists/HYS_PENALTY_EXEMPTIONS_XH.pdf" target="_blank">isiXhosa</a>) ​</li><li><a href="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/documentcentre/Documents/Forms%2c%20notices%2c%20tariffs%20and%20lists/HYS_Proposed_Admin_Penalty_Exemptions_List.pdf" target="_blank">Proposed categories of minor contraventions</a> </li></ul><h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​Comment period</h2><p>Comments may be submitted from <strong>26 April – 4 June 2021</strong>.</p><h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​Submit your comment</h2><p> <strong>Online</strong><br> <a href="https://www.capetown.gov.za/_layouts/15/WebFeedback.SharePoint/webfeedback.aspx?id=%208600b8ab-0dc6-4cd6-af79-7aea5e2747db" target="_blank">Submit your comments online</a>.</p> <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> Our Public Participation Unit will assist you if you would like to submit comments but have a disability or are unable to read or write.
