It really depends on the municipality. The smaller it is the quicker it should happen. We are in the building industry and the housing committee (not the "big" council) get together twice a month to adjudicate plans, after all technical details have been approved by the inspectors. So, yes, unless there are exemptions to be had you could reckon on two weeks. But I know in big cities like Jhb is can take a few weeks if not longer, unless you know the right person in the technical department who deals with plans.
