New Guideline Professional Fees for Planners Drawn Up

Department of Rural Development and Land Reform

New guideline professional fees for planners are in place.

The rural development and land reform department published the adjusted fees in Government Gazette 41959.

The South African Council for Planners (SACPLAN) drew up the new fees in terms of section 29 of the Planning Profession Act.

The rate per hour for category A staff stands at R2 323 while category D staff will receive R1 207 per hour.

Category A staff is defined as top practitioners whose expertise and relevant experience is nationally or internationally recognized.

Category D refers to all salaried professional or technical staff members who have not yet completed the 24-months post qualification experience requirement for registration with SACPLAN.

The fees were last adjusted in 2014.
