This article details proposals regarding Western and Eastern road bypasses. These proposals pre-empt the
proper planning and consultation process that should precede such large-scale changes. It is unclear how this article and map came to be published in the newspapers
while none of this can be found in the IDP/MSDF documentation. Here is the
accompanying map showing the proposed Western Bypass in red and the Eastern Route in blue.
Appendix 4 of the Draft 4th Generation IDP 2017 contains a detailed list of erven and farms
proposed for inclusion into the Urban Edge. Spatial proposals should follow from, not precede, a proper 4th Generation IDP and MSDF specialist consultant and public
participation process in the second half of 2017 and early 2018. This Appendix 4 pre-empts the 2018 process and should therefore be removed from the Draft IDP.
MSDF 3rd Generation (April 2017 Revision) This document is proposed for approval by Council in May
2017. As part of the last of the old 3rd Generation documents, it should contain only minor amendments to the 2016 and earlier SDF proposals. However, far from
containing only small amendments, it includes 12 new proposals for revisions of the Urban Edge as shown below. All of the proposed changes set out below should be
removed from the document.
