The website refers to the Magaliesberg Protected Environment (known previously as the Magaliesberg Protected Natural Environment)   Can you confirm whether this is by name only, or has it been declared ito Section 28 of the National Environmental Management: Protected Areas Act (2003)?

In 1977 under the Physical Planning Act the Magaliesberg Nature Area was proclaimed. Over the years successive pieces of legislation have preserved its status, but used different nomenclature.

At present it is the Magaliesberg Protected Environment. Section 28 (7) of the Protected Areas Act 2003 states :

"An area which was a protected environment immediately before this section took effect must for purposes of this section be regarded as having been declared as such in terms of this section".

This is of course the case with the Magaliesberg.
