About this Publication:

Now part of the Juta’s Property Law Library series, the 2nd edition provides a comprehensive discussion of the core aspects of South African planning law. 

This edition has been revised and entirely reworked to reflect the major changes in planning law. It not only focuses on values and equity, but also on the development of an entirely new vision and structure for planning in all three spheres of government. It gives detailed attention to spatial planning, land use management and land development management. The effect of the new constitutional dispensation is discussed, as well as landmark Constitutional Court decisions that were handed down in early 2012. The foreword concisely explains the new Spatial Planning and Land Use Management Bill 2012 and refers to the relevant chapters where it is discussed at length. The book also deals with related administrative, environmental, local government, housing and informal settlement issues. It introduces some basic principles, addresses the roots of planning law in South Africa as well as some of the results of its apartheid history.
