Mogale’s IDP schedule dates released

Mogale City Local Municipality has to use an Integrated Development Plan (IDP) as a method to plan for the future development of the town.

The IDP is an approach that involves the entire municipality and its citizens in finding the best solutions to achieve good long-term development. It aims to co-ordinate the work of local and other spheres of government in a coherent plan to improve the quality of life for all the people living in an area.

The IDP schedule for the next financial year in Mogale City has been set and shared. All residents are requested to attend the day and take part in the planning process.

In terms of section 21(1)(a) of the Local Government: Municipal Systems Act 32 of 2000, the Mogale City Local Municipality will hold Public Participation meetings as part of the annual review of its IDP and budget compilation process as per the schedule provided.

Why is it necessary to do an IDP? There are six main reasons why a municipality should have an IDP:

• It helps to speed up delivery

• It helps to attract additional funds

• It strengthens democracy

• It helps to overcome the legacy of apartheid

• It promotes co-ordination between local, provincial and national government
