- South African Schools Act 84 of 1996 [SASA]
- 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.
