Dear Land use Working Group
The Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF) on 13 March 2015, published a notice in the Government Gazette (Notice No. 210 of 2015, Gazette No. 38545) requesting comments on the draft Policy and Bill on Preservation and Development of Agricultural Land Framework. The draft Policy and Bill seek to demarcate, protect and develop agricultural land for food security purposes. The proposed legislation will, when promulgated, replace SALA (Act 70 of 1970) and will be applicable to all developments on agricultural land, including agricultural land currently exempted from SALA.
Comments on the draft Policy and Bill may be submitted to DAFF in writing on or before 30 May 2015. The LUWG intends submitting comments on the draft Policy and Bill and as such you are requested to submit your comments, if any, to me by close of business on Friday 15 May 2015. Please use the “Template for comments” from when submitting your comments to me.
Relevant documentation can be downloaded from the land use working group documents folder:
