Good Day All,
The City of Cape Town is reviewing its Spatial Development Framework (SDFs). The role of integrated SDFs and EMFs is to establish a framework inclusive of a spatial vision, policy parameters and development priorities. It communicates the future spatial form and structure for the City. As a package, the products guide decision-making in urban development and land use planning.
The 2022 draft documents will be approved together and adopted in association with the new-term-of-office Integrated Development Plan (IDP, 2022-2027)*. It represents the spatial vision, development and land use implementation guidelines for Cape Town. Included, in MSDF and eight integrated DSDFs – EMFs is a proposed Urban Development Edge, which, if adopted by DEA&DP**, will give effect to NEMA Urban Areas for Cape Town. The current draft Integrated DSDFs – EMFs incorporate relevant inputs given the previous rounds of public comments.
Comment on draft documents to be submitted between 6 June and 30 August 2022. No late responses will be accepted.
