ACTS

  • South African Schools Act 84 of 1996 [SASA]

8.5.2Framework for the Development of School Policy on Building of Facilities at Own Cost

  1. Considerations when building at own Cost
    • Once a building has been built or erected on departmental land, the buildings or structures will belong to the relevant Provincial Education Department (PED).
    • When adding permanent structures to the current school buildings, the new additions should preferably, where viable, complement the architectural style of the existing buildings.
    • The SGB must draw up building plans in the case of new structures and even alterations, and submit them to the District Office.
    • After the PED has approved the plans, the SGB should also have the plans approved by the local authority before construction work begins.
    • On completion, the Department’s building inspectors must be informed and asked to inspect and formally approve the buildings or structures.
