CONSTRAINTS BEING FACED BY THESE LAWS
These Laws are outdated and are not practical for use in today’s Planning Regime. They are however, currently being reviewed, but the reform process under which they are being reviewed is taking a quite a long time to be carried out.
Fines and penalties stipulated by these laws are deemed mediocre hence making the enforcement process somewhat redundant.
Some of the Laws are too rigid and need to be more flexible in order to facilitate sustainable development.
