Final amendments to the National Estuarine Management Protocol have been published for implementation."These amendments address implementation issues and the impact of the 2016 Supreme Court of Appeal judgement in Abbott v Overstrand Municipality. The judgement found that the assignment of functions to municipalities in the existing protocol presented constitutional challenges, as the assignment should have been done in terms of Integrated Coastal Management Act, and not the protocol."
