A Day Out Understanding the Practical Application of Land Use Planning Law

10 May 2016 - 11:00

Land Use Planning Law is a very practical subject and accordingly Land Use Planning Law students spent the day down at Soetwater near Scarborough, unpacking an array of complicated land use planning law scenarios. They were also introduced to the site and land-use planning conundrum which formed the focus of their course assignment - an impending development in the Schusterskraal wetland. Students are required to prepare a fictional formal objection to the proposed development - drawing from the wealth of land use planning laws prevalent in South Africa. After a day of mental exertion, they replenished their energy with a well-deserved late lunch provided by Sandy Paterson (the course convener).
