New residential land use zone Tshwane

New rules that may influence development are being introduced across Tshwane. Planning zones stipulate what development and uses can be built where and the Local Government has introduced new residential zones for Tshwane.

This represents one of the biggest planning reforms in Tshwane’s history. These new residential zones may change the type of development and subdivision that is allowed to occur in your street and neighborhood. The changes to the residential zones impact upon building heights, density, neighborhood character and the future use of your property.

The introduction of the new residential zones provides Council with an opportunity to implement the housing strategy. In general, the new residential zones will be applied in accordance with the three levels of housing change identified in the provincial housing strategy.
