9. What is zoning? How does zoning relate to opening a business?

The Tshwane Town Planning Scheme is a legal document. The Town Planning and Townships Ordinance, 1986, and the Gauteng Planning and Development Act (3 of 2003) require compliance with it. The Town Planning Scheme determines the general rules for the development of properties, and particularly:

  • The use of a property (use zoning);
  • The development density (density zoning) of a property;
  • The development controls, that is, the height, size (bulk or floor area/floor area ratio FAR/FSR) and extent of development (through building lines and building restriction areas) on a property as well as parking and access issues.
Each property in a town planning scheme area has a specific use zone. A number of development and density controls may be coupled to the particular use zone. These are the development rights of a property and influence its value. Generally, a property with rights for a retail centre will have a greater market value than a similarly located property with rights for a single dwelling house. As these rights have value, changing them may impact on a property's value. The Town Planning and Townships Ordinance (15 of 1986), therefore, allows a property owner to claim compensation from the local authority should it change or reduce his or her rights on a property.

Therefore, before you open a business, ensure that your land use rights or zoning is applicable to your planned enterprise.
For more information, contact the relevant Town Planning offices for your area:
  • Akasia: 1st Floor, Spectrum Building, Plein Street West, Karenpark. For enquiries, phone 012 358 9110.
  • Centurion: Room 8, Town Planning office, cnr Basden and Rabie Streets. For enquiries, phone 012 358 3253.
  • Pretoria: Room G10, Ground Floor, Munitoria, cnr Vermeulen and Van der Walt Streets. For enquiries, phone 012 358 4689.
