  • Resource use can only be sustainable if the ethic of environmental care applies at all applicable levels.

  • Sustainability to be enabled through sustainable development, i.e. development that promotes human-well-being and environmental integrity through efficient use of resources (capital).

Planning context – the Spatial Planning System

Levels and items of compliance

A glimpse at the PSDF

Spatial planning model adopted

Spatial Planning Categories (SPCs)

Provincial spatial vision: The concept

Provincial spatial vision: An example

  • Provincial SPC plan is to serve as a basis for detailed designation at the district and local level in accordance with defined Sub-Categories.

  • Municipalities are allowed to adapt the Sub-Categories to cater for local, site-specific circumstances

  • Include all land zonings that are provided for under the existing zoning scheme regulations.

SPCs and Municipal Sub-Categories



SPC (land-use) plans @ the various levels



  • SPISYS is an information system comprising integrated components for collecting, storing and processing data and for delivering information, knowledge and digital products.

  • Combines hardware, software, infrastructure and trained personnel organised to facilitate effective land-use planning through implementation of the SPCs and Sub-Categories.

  • Standardises spatial data to promote use of spatial information for end-users.

  • To be used by all concerned, including all spheres of government, planners, developers, sectoral institutions, and the b community. Register at
