By-Laws and Their Importance

A by-law is a law passed by the Council of a municipality to regulate affairs and services within its jurisdiction. Municipalities derive the authority to pass by-laws from the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, which specifies powers and competencies for local government in Part B of Schedules 4 and Part B of 5 of the Constitution.

By-laws can change over time, so it’s always prudent to ensure you have the most current municipal by-laws. To access the by-laws for the City of Cape Town, please click on the link below:
