Drakenstein Municipality (2016-2018)

MCA was appointed as part of a Specialist Research Team to undertake research and provide input on the development of the Drakenstein Zoning Scheme. The first phase is now complete and explored the regional and local economy and its relationship to land use management, focusing on the following:

  • The role and potential of local government and land use management in particular to influence the local economy.
  • Approaches to economically supportive land use management

It explored the projected and probable land uses, key change drivers and associated quantitative and qualitative indicators for Drakenstein over the next 10 to 20 years and how these could be accommodated within the zoning scheme.

The second phase contributes to ongoing inputs to iterations of the zoning scheme.
