    Dear all,

    Thank you very much to everyone who participated in the meeting. Please see below the minutes of the meeting and objectives for the year with associated to do list.

    Windaba 2016: at this stage we do not feel that we have anything to present and thus won’t present. If however closer to the time we have more insight regarding PDALFA and it is possible to get a lawyer or the drafter of the bill to present we will pursue this.

    PDALFA: The first round of public participation came to an end, they have since appointed a legal person to review the comments received (same person who was involved with SPLUMA).

    SKA: revised regulations drafted and will start the public participation process soon.


    Objectives and to do:
    1.tDAFF/PDAFLA: Setup a follow-up meeting with DAFF (previous meeting held 24 March 2015) to discuss PDALFA etc - Eugene to setup meeting
    2.tPDAFLA: Review updated draft when available – land use working group
    3.tSPLUMA: we will send out a general question to all SAWEA members to determine whether other IPPs also experience the same problems regarding land use applications. If we get a response that this is an industry problem we will setup a meeting at provincial level in affected provinces – Enelge to proceed
    4.tSPLUMA: We will aim to get a legal opinion whether...
