The HBRRA Land Use Planning Portfolio provides input from a community perspective on land use planning matters affecting Hout Bay. The group provides comments and changes on land use planning legislation proposed by three tiers of government during the public participation process. It also comments on land use planning applications in respect of land in Hout Bay where such applications deviate from the legal conditions governing development of the particular erf; for example, building a lesser of further distance from the erf boundary than required in terms of the Cape Town Zoning Scheme (CTZS), or wishing to subdivide an erf into portions smaller than the minimum size as set out in the Local Area Overlay in the CTZS for Hout Bay.
