Matiase, Mr NS to ask the MINISTER OF RURAL DEVELOPMENT AND LAND REFORM
With reference to the reply of the Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs to question 2342 on 13 September 2018, for what purpose is each (a) bonded and (b) non-bonded property used in each (i) province and (ii) metropolitan municipality?
As reported in Parliamentary question 1569 of 2018, posed to the Minister of Rural Development and Land Reform in May 2018, this information falls within the functional competency of municipalities in terms of section 24 of the Spatial Planning and Land Use Management Act, 2013. Municipalities are required to record the use of land as part of their land use schemes and are therefore the custodians of this information, not the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform.
