700 000 ha of land to lease


Government will, in the next two weeks, advertise thousands of hectares of available State land for lease, as the country accelerates its land reform programme.

Detailing how the process will unfold, Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development Minister, Thoko Didiza, on Thursday said during this period, government will issue advertisement notices of 896 farms measuring 700 000 hectares of underutilised or vacant State land in the following provinces:

  • The Eastern Cape has received an allocation of 43 000 Ha.
  • Free State and KwaZulu-Natal have been allocated 8 333 Ha and 3 684 Ha, respectively.
  • Limpopo will disburse 121 567 Ha to beneficiaries.
  • Mpumalanga will receive 40 206 Ha.
  • The Northern Cape and North West will, respectively, release 12 224 Ha and 300 000 Ha.
  • No land will be advertised in Gauteng and the Western Cape.

Addressing media, Didiza said notices will be in the placed on local, district and provincial newspapers, websites and local radio stations.

Application forms will be made available at the district offices and provincial offices of the Departments of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development, as well as Municipal District offices.

The adjudication and selection process will then begin.

“After the closing date, all applications received will be compiled and captured in a database per district in each province,” said the Minister.

The District Beneficiary Screening Committee (DBSC) will then screen the application, interview against the criteria set out in the advertisement notice and make recommendations to the Provincial Technical Committee (PTC) for consideration.

The Provincial Technical Committee will evaluate and review the recommendations of the District Committee and submit to the national department for approval. This will take approximately three weeks.

The National Selection and Approval Committee (NSAC) will consider all recommendations and approve suitable applications. This will take approximately three weeks.

Both successful and unsuccessful applicants will be informed of the outcome in writing. The Minister said unsuccessful applicants will have an opportunity to register their appeals with the Land Allocation Appeals Committee.
