Notice is hereby given in terms of sections 28(3) and 29 of the Municipal Systems Act, 2000 (Act 32 of 2000), section 20 of the Spatial Planning and Land Use Management Act, 2013
(Act 16 of 2013), and section 7(1)(b) of the Polokwane Municipal Planning By-Law that Polokwane Municipality intends to compile its Municipal Spatial Development Framework (Polokwane SDF).

The Polokwane SDF is a long-term forward planning document which spatially indicates the long- term growth and development path of the municipality. The SDF will co-ordinates the
spatial implications of all strategic sector plans (engineering, transport, economic, housing, community services etc.) of the municipality as well as alignment with other sphere of government. The Polokwane SDF is also one of the core components of a municipal IDP and gives physical effect to the vision, goals and objectives of the municipal IDP. Once completed, the Polokwane SDF will be approved in terms of the Municipal Systems Act 2000, (Act 32 of 2000) and will serve as a guide to decision making in development and land use planning.

An Intergovernmental Steering Committee (ISC) and Project Committee has been established as prescribed in terms of section 7(1)(a) of the Polokwane Municipal Planning By-Law. The committee will, amongst other things, oversee the development of the Polokwane SDF. The draft Polokwane SDF will be advertised for public input during a public participation process. The Project Committee will consider all comments and representations during the public participation and submit a revised SDF document to the Intergovernmental Steering Committee (ISC) for comment. The revised final draft SDF document will be submitted to Council for adoption. Should the adopted nal SDF be materially different from the initial version that was published for comment, it will be readvertised. Once re-advertised and subsequently adopted by Council, a notice will be published in the Provincial Gazette and media to inform the public of the adopted Polokwane SDF.
