What is the Purpose?
The purpose of the Provincial Spatial Development Framework will be to:
provide a spatial representation of the land development policies, strategies and objectives of the province, which must include the province’s growth and development strategy;
indicate the desired and intended pattern of land use development in the province, including the delineation of areas in which development in general or development of a particular type would not be appropriate;
coordinate and integrate the spatial expression of the sectoral plans of provincial departments;
provide a framework for coordinating municipal spatial development frameworks with each other where they are contiguous;
coordinate municipal spatial development frameworks with the provincial spatial development framework and any regional spatial development frameworks as they apply in the province; and
incorporate any spatial aspects of relevant national development strategies and programmes as they apply in the province.
