CIfA Newsflash 110/2023 | CoCT Plan and Build It Right Newsletter 20 October 2023

Dear CIfA, SAACPP and UDISA Members, 

Building Development Management:

Business Partner validation on BDM Applications now active

The DAMS system has now implemented the validation on Building Development Management (BDM) applications on the portal. This means that if there is no information or if information is missing on your business partner records, and you have not taken the opportunity to have this updated yet, then you will not be able to proceed with your application.
This may result in unnecessary delays as this information must now be updated before you can proceed with an application.

Kindly contact 0860 103 089, or email to provide the required information and to proceed with your application. This validation requirement will also be rolled out for Land Use Management applications shortly.  

Payments to Development Management

A payment reference number is a 9-digit reference number, and is displayed on top right-hand corner of a pro-forma invoice. Payments made to the City with no payment reference number are difficult to trace and allocate to the correct service department. 

Note: Quotations are for information purposes only. Do not make a payment on a quotation as there is no payment reference number to cite. 
You can pay at any City of Cape Town Cash Office/Walk-in Centre.
or at any of these paypoints:
