We have been waiting for one of our permits since August last year. They lost it in Dec last year and despite numerous e-mails which were all ignored, I finally found out in April what had happened and I had to reapply but it was definitely going before the board in May I was promised. That of course didn't happen. I chased it again in August and was asked to re-submit certain documents because the certification stamp has to be right next to the SAPS date stamp and not 5cms apart!! I was told that the board could actually reject the application because of that so they are just being cautious. And here we are several weeks after the board sat and not a dicky bird from them despite several e-mails requesting an update regularly. My e-mails to the department, with Jits Patel copied in, are ignored. Longest we waited for permits was 18mths but that seems to have improved in most cases
