The applicants are property developers on the west coast. During a period from April 2003 to August 2008 they made six applications (development applications) to the Saldanha Bay Municipality (Municipality) for the rezoning and subdivision of properties acquired by them. These applications were granted by the Municipality, subject to certain conditions for the payment of contributions in respect of the provision of services and amenities to the land. Although these contributions also relate to non-capital expenditure, they have been referred to by all as “capital contributions” and I will, for ease of reference, do the same.
