The City of Cape Town has published the City’s Streets, Public Places and the Prevention of Noise Nuisances Amendment By-law and is asking you to comment.

The By-law was first promulgated in 2007 and relates to the management of streets, public places, noise nuisances and other related matters in Cape Town.

Our proposed amendments aim to add and streamline procedural aspects of the By-law that support and enable necessary law enforcement, including:
▪ effectively resolving complaints and situations relating to noise, and
▪ reducing risk to the City, individuals and land owners by ensuring that these processes or actions are supported by legislation.

In terms of section 17 of the Local Government: Municipal Systems Act, Act 32 of 2000, you can submit comments to the municipality.

Comments can be emailed to Leon Wentzel at Streetspublicplaces.Bylaw@capetown.gov.za by no later than Wednesday, 30 June 2021.

Enquiries can be directed to Leon Wentzel on tel (021) 376 1135
