This reference manual has been developed with the end user, especially the developer or prospective developer, in mind.   Given the ever-changing nature of the building environment, the purpose of this guide is to be a fluid and annually revised document that encourages ongoing discussion as opposed to a standalone policy.

This document will remain "live" in that it will be updated and edited from time to time.  Comments and recommendations for the 2017/18 review are highly encouraged, and can be sent to: Mr Stefan van Niekerk - Department of Development Planning Office,

This document is very easy to read with a number of pictures and examples.  You can download the document by clicking here.
