The Integrated Development Plan (IDP) is an approach to planning that
involves the municipality and its citizens in finding the best solutions
to achieve good long-term development.
Development Plan (IDP) section is primarily responsible for driving the
IDP process, which in essence entails the strategic planning for the
municipality’s development agenda in accordance with its powers and
functions. For the implementation of the IDP, the municipality has
facilitated the development, monitoring and reporting of a Service
Delivery Budget and Implementation Plan (SDBIP). Another important
function of the IDP process involves the consultation and communication
process with the community, sectors and other stakeholders. Each ward
is consulted on their needs.
