    The Western Cape Provincial Department of Environmental Affairs and Development Planning is not the competent authority to promulgate zoning schemes. Section 9(2) is unconstitutional and I have no doubt that both the City of Cape Town and Provincial Government knew this when MEC Bredell promulgated the CTZS. The question is: if this is the case (and hopefully a PAIA application will establish the truth one way or the another)why did they act unlawfully and unconstitutionally? Because they knew that to obtain a declaration of invalidity and certify it would take time and money. So they took a shortcut and went ahead anyway with the intention of “curing” the defect with a by-law in 2015. If they did not know it was unconstitutional then, to be frank they are too dull-witted to govern.
