    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.

    Document Author:

    Section 38 of the National Heritage Resources Act requires that any person who intends to undertake certain categories of development in the Western Cape must notify Heritage Western Cape at the very earliest stage of initiating such a development and must furnish details of the location, nature and extent of the proposed development. This form is designed to assist the developer to provide the necessary information to enable Heritage Western Cape to decide whether a Heritage Impact Assessment will be required.
