23 6. CPA TURN AROUND STRAGEGY 6.2. REGULARIZATIONThis process is divided into the following phases: Fact-finding, Intervention (regularization) and close-out.Phase 1: Regularizing (assisted by LRMF):Fact finding; andGovernance issues→compliance.
24 6. CPA TURN AROUND STRAGEGY 6.3. REGULARIZATION cont……Phase 2: Recap and Development:Funding and recapitalizing the business; andOperational issues →Sustainability.Fact-finding entails compilation of a diagnostic report that establishes the extent of dysfunctionality.
25 REGULARIZATION – Cont…2 Intervention (regularization) phase deals with mediation and other corrective measures to fix the identified deficiencies.In the close-out phase all the things that are necessary to ensure the sustainability of the CPA are put in place after the intervention phase.147 Requests for regularization were handled by the Land Rights Management Facility (LRMF) since 2011.

31 6.4 REGULARIZATION: ACHIEVEMENTS AND EXPENDITURE The regularization process has provided substantial assistance to dysfunctional CPAs, assisted to regularize where feasible and advising on the appropriate steps where regularization is not feasible.20 CPAs regularized to date;23 CPAs near completion;11 CPAs recommended for Judicial Administration;16 CPAs recommended for deregistration;24 appear not feasible for regularization;53 CPAs at early phases due to some challenges;Expenditure since December 2012 = R
32 5.4 REGULARIZATION: LESSONS LEARNT The regularization process is multi-faceted, involving a range of interventions to address the different issues confronting individual CPAs.MediationMost of the long standing and complex disputes are difficult to resolve and require a thorough and patient mediation efforts. In many instances, formal regularization and compliance can only be achieved by addressing the underlying capacity and development issues faced by the communities.
33 REGULARIZATION: LESSONS LEARNT – Cont…. Third Party InterventionLong standing disputes could not be resolved within the confines and resources of the CPA. This requires intervention of third parties such as mediators and municipalities or allocation of additional resources such as land and/or finances.
35 8. FUTURE PLANSDedicated personnel within provinces will be appointed to provide adequate support to CPAs.The Department has split the Land Reform branch into two branches namely; Land Redistribution development and Land Tenure and Administration. The Branch Land Tenure and Administration is responsible for monitoring, supporting and registering CPAs.
36 FUTURE PLANS –Cont…2The Department intends to amend the Communal Property Associations Act.The CPA Amendment Bill will amongst others lead to the establishment of a stand alone CPA Office and the appointment of a Registrar of CPA Nationally and Deputy Registrars in Provinces.
37 FUTURE PLANS– Cont…3A policy has being developed to guide the approach to dealing with CPAs.The Communal Property Amendment Policy on CPAs will guide the operations of CPAs through a model best illustrated by the Wagon Wheel.This model allocates roles and responsibilities to different role-players which should LEAD to better support and administration of CPAs.
38 FUTURE PLANS– Cont..3Training379 CPA committee members were trained on corporate governance.The trainees represented 95 CPAs
39 FUTURE PLANS : CPA POLICY A Policy on Communal Property Associations was developed which aims to address the following:Inequitable access to land;Democratic governance deficits;CPI relations with surrounding communities and state structures;Contested substantive land rights and tenure issues;Obstacles to land utilization and development in CPI; andState support to CPIs.
40 FUTURE PLANS: CPA AMENDMENT BILL The Communal Property Associations Amendment Bill seeks to create dedicated capacity within the Department to support CPAs.This will be done through the establishment of the CPA Office and the appointment of the Registrar nationally and Deputy Registrars in provinces.By requiring a 60% quorum of members the Bill will ensure that the decision making process is inclusive and that all decisions represent the view of the majority of members.
