uMhlathuze Land Use Scheme (LUMS)
Following an extensive public participation process undertaken during 2013, the new "uMhlathuze Land Use Scheme" was adopted by Council, which replaced the old Richards Bay and Empangeni Town Planning Schemes and also extended the scheme area to include land owned by the Ingonyama Trust Board. The new Scheme became effective from 7 January 2014.
During 2015, the scheme was reviewed. The effective date of the reviewed scheme is 25 June 2015.
