The Constitutional Court will make a final ruling on the Development Facilitation Act in June 2012, which could result in this Act being repealed. This could mean that Development Tribunals would no longer be able to make decisions on land development applications. In the absence of the DFA, the Spatial Planning And Land Use Management Act would have to have been put in place. Should the new Act not be in place by then, development applications would then have to be made in terms of the legacy Townships Ordinances.
