Updated Information for Landowners I.R.O. dealing with Land Claims on their Property and the Restitution of  Land Rights Act


In lieu of the proposed reopening of the restitution claims process, I refer to the decision taken at the previous meeting of the Transformation Policy Committee held on the 14th of August 2013, where it was decided to update the informative documents titled "Informative guide on the Restitution of Land Rights Act" and "How to deal with land claims".

The documents have been amended to reflect new provisions introduced by the Restitution of Land Rights Amendment Bill as well as the new Expropriation Bill.

Members should also be aware that the Restitution of Land Rights Amendment Bill (which opens up the land claim process - new cut-off date for lodgement of claims being extended to 31st December 2018) was approved by Cabinet on 4th September 2013 and has now been submitted to Parliament.
