Extension of deadline for written submissions for Land Expropriation without compensation

10 May 2018

The deadline for written submissions on the proposed review of Section 25 of the Constitution has been extended by two weeks until 15 June 2018. This extension will make the period for written submissions a total of 60 days given to the public to make written input on the expropriation of land without compensation. The Joint Constitutional Review Committee met today to adopt its programme for public hearings on the proposed review of Section 25 of the Constitution.

The committee was instructed by the National Assembly (NA) and the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) to review Section 25 of the Constitution and other clauses where necessary; to make it possible for the state to expropriate land, in the public interest without compensation, and propose constitutional amendments where necessary. In doing so, the committee is expected to engage in a public participation process in order to get views of all stakeholders about the necessity of, and mechanisms for expropriating land without compensation.

Enquiries and written submissions can be addressed to Ms Pat Jayiya, Committee Section, PO Box 15, Cape Town 8000, email pjayiya@parliament.gov.za, tel (021) 403-3661, fax 086 465 0678, cell 081 441 0345. Hand delivered submissions can be submitted at W/S 091, 3rd Floor, 90 Plein Street, Cape Town.
