Resource Document

Terms of Reference for the Stellenbosch Planning Advisory Committee

The National Heritage Resources Act, 1999, (Act no 25 of 1999) was introduced to conserve, protect and manage the cultural landscape of South Africa. As with the Municipal Systems Act, 2000 (Act No 32 of 2000) responsible community involvement is encouraged by the Act which aims to enable and encourage communities to nurture and conserve their legacy so that it may be bequeathed for future generations. The Act makes provision for local authorities to take responsibility for managing its local heritage resources but community involvement features prominently in this process.
