To prepare a new local provision

To prepare for the introduction of the Planning Scheme Information Management System (PSIMS), the generic local provisions templates have been updated to reflect the new Ministers Direction on the Form and Content of Planning Schemes.

To use the new templates, go to local provision templates.

To access existing local provisions

The local provisions in Microsoft Word for each municipality reflect the superseded Direction. These should only be used to copy and paste content into the new templates when preparing an amendment to existing provisions.

To use these documents go to the Microsoft Word version of local provisions for individual planning schemes.


  1. go to
  2. choose the relevant planning scheme
  3. choose the file you want to open and save, or right click on the file and ‘save target as’
