SAPOA Virtual Trends Webinar: How Development Charges Are Going to Affect You

Date(s) - 10 Jun '21
10:00 am - 11:00 am


The cost of ‘internal’ infrastructure has, until now, fallen on developers, and ‘external’ infrastructure on local government. It is only in recent years (post SPLUMA in 2015) that some municipal bylaws have mandated the payment of ‘development charges’ (DC). Up until now, those charges have been largely unconstitutional.

Treasury has been trying to fix that through draft Policy (2015) and now a draft amendment Bill that will introduce DC provisions in the MFPFA and SPLUMA (2020). If the Bill is passed in present form, it will lead to widespread abuse and greatly increase the cost of development.

Join SAPOA and Norman Brauteseth from NBA Attorneys in Durban to gain an understanding of the constitutional prescripts, the proposals in the Bill, and the extent of the overreach it will spawn – as is already evident from, for example, the 2020 COJ Policy on Development Charges.
