    After the Phase 1 drawings have been approved, one set of the detailed design and working drawings must be submitted to the Aesthetics Committee for approval in electronic PDF format, via WeTransfer. Provide all required information as prescribed in Form B for Phase 2 submission.


Plan Submission Process

After the working drawings have been approved they must be submitted to the local authority for approval. Certain prescribed fees will be payable at this stage to the local authority. These aesthetics rules are in addition to, and do not supersede, the requirements of the local authority or any statutory authority or the National Building Regulations.


Site Registration

At this stage, plan approval has been obtained from the Local Authority and you as the owner have appointed a building contractor to perform all the intended building work.

It is of utmost importance that before any construction takes place, the building contractor registers the project with Estate management (Trafalgar) and a building deposit is paid by the owner. The Contractor will sign on behalf of the owner that the house will be built as per the approved plans and that any intended deviation will be formally submitted to Studious Aesthetics for approval first. The contractor will also undertake that he will be liable to a penalty fee for any construction work that has not formally been approved.

Once the contractor has successfully registered the site, the construction may commence.


Request for Completion Certificate from the HOA Aesthetical Committee

I have completed my house as per approved plans, what now?

At this stage, the construction of the new house has been completed AND an occupation certificate from the local authority has been obtained. Now you are ready to request a final inspection from Studious Aesthetics to release the building deposit and obtain a Final Completion Certificate.

Please Complete Form G and email it to inspections@studious.co.za. The inspection will be performed by Studious Aesthetics and feedback will be provided within a period of 2-3 weeks from the receipt of Form G.
