Integrated Development Planning


This Section coordinates regional Integrated Development Planning (IDP), Intergovernmental Relations and Public Participation within the Garden Route District.


The IDP is the business plan of the Municipality and seeks to bring about integrated development planning and budgeting in the Garden Route District area. Integrated Development Planning (IDP) is an approach to planning that involves the entire municipality and its community members in finding the best solutions to achieve long-term objectives.

Chapter 5 of the Municipal Systems Act (MSA) Act 32 of 2000 requires municipalities to develop Integrated Development Plans which should be single, inclusive and strategic in nature. The IDP of a municipality guides development within the council‘s area of jurisdiction. The IDP is reviewed and adopted by Council on an annual basis.
