Housing tribunals 'function unlawfully'

Housing tribunals 'function unlawfully' Court rules regulate the conduct of the proceedings of the courts, as for example, in the case of a tenant or landlord seeking to take a ruling or judgment on appeal. Where a party intends to appeal against the judgment of a court or to take on review an alleged irregularity, the party is entitled to a copy of the transcript, upon payment of the prescribed fees. This is usually paid to an outsourced commercial company, such as Sneller Recordings. The transcript of the mechanical or digital recording of the proceedings must be certified as correct. Rental Housing Tribunals do not have regulations as required by the Rental Housing Act 50 of 1999 as amended.

Joburg council says no to Gupta rezoning plan

Joburg council says no to Gupta rezoning plan A request by the Gupta family for their property in Saxonwold, Joburg, to be rezoned has been declined, a councillor said yesterday. Ward 117 councillor Tim Truluck said he received written notification yesterday that the city's town planning tribunal had declined the request. No reason was given. Gupta family spokesman Gary Naidoo said he would respond to questions by e-mail. Truluck said that if the Guptas wanted to reapply for rezoning, they could do so at a provincial level, or submit a new application to the City of Joburg that was more in line with municipal requirements. Residents could also look at the application. City spokesman Gabu Tugwana said: 'We believe the Guptas have knowledge of why the rezoning was declined. Rather (than us), the family are at liberty to explain the reasons why.'

Tshwane transformation to spare jacaranda trees

Tshwane transformation to spare jacaranda trees Tshwane's central business district and transport system are undergoing major changes to transform the city into a modern capital, one that will also maintain its heritage like its famed jacaranda trees. Jacaranda trees are in full bloom, lining many of the streets of Pretoria, and the beautiful purple blossoms are a huge tourist attraction. Come October and the city's jacaranda trees are in full bloom, their blossoms forming a purple carpet on pavements and lawns. Streets in the CBD like Minnaar and Johannes Ramokhoase are lined with jacaranda trees planted more than a century ago.
