The SAACPP (South) 2016 AGM was held on 10 August 2016 at the Cape Institute for Architecture which followed with a Cheese & Wine.

Please find below the link to a copy of Mr Gerhard Swart’s Chairman’s Report which was presented to the attendees at the 2016 SAACPP (South) AGM.

Chairman’s Report 

The report provides an overview of the work undertaken by the South African Association of Consulting Professional Planners (SAACPP) and its Committee since the last AGM, events of the past year, and a report back on the achievements and main issues addressed by the different portfolios. The report also looks at the constraints, challengers and major changes that emerged within the planning profession, but also highlights the focus areas for the New Year.

It is important to note at this point that the professional planner has probably experienced the most important change in decades, namely the changes to legislative environment that governs the statutory framework within which the planner’s daily work is undertaken. The last major event of a similar nature was the implementation of the Land Use Planning Ordinance (No 15 of 1985) on 01 July 1986. Thirty years later, on 1 July 2015, the new “Planning Regine” has been introduced as a suite of new legislation through the implementation of the Spatial Planning and Land Use Management Act, 2013 (Act 16 of 2013) (SPLUMA), the Western Cape Land Use Planning Act, 2014 (Act 3 of 2014) LUPA, and the Municipal Planning By-Laws (MPB).

Dear Members,
