Accordingly, the CFCR endeavours to contribute positively to the promotion and protection of our constitutional democracy. This includes the achievement of real and substantive equality and equitable access to land and other resources, but with due regard for those rights concerning property and administrative action that is lawful, reasonable and procedurally fair, as provided for in the Constitution.
As such, the CFCR welcomes the opportunity to make a concise submission to the Office of the Valuer-General regarding the Draft Regulations of the Property Valuation Act 17 of 2014 (Draft Regulations) in response to your call for submissions as published on http://www.gov.za.
In this regard, please find attached our submission for the Department’s attention and consideration.
It is not the purpose or intention of this submission to provide comprehensive legal analysis or technical assessment of the Draft Regulations, but rather to draw attention to key constitutional concerns in relation to the Draft Regulations.
We trust that our submission will be of assistance in guiding the Department in its deliberations regarding the Draft Regulations.
