Public invited to comment on the IDP

29 January 2021

Residents and stakeholders have been invited to submit comments on the Kouga Municipality’s draft Integrated Development Plan (IDP) for the 2020/2021 financial year.

An electronic copy of the IDP, a five-year plan that captures the development needs of communities, is available on the municipal website and will also be circulated on flash drives, said Kouga Executive Mayor, Horatio Hendricks.

The flash drives will be available from ward councillors, ward committees and ward offices from February.   

Hendricks explained that the first round of IDP public meetings usually takes place in October and November each year.

“Regrettably, we had to put the meetings on hold last year due to the resurgence of positive Covid-19 cases in our region,” he said.

“Lockdown restrictions on gatherings have, unfortunately, not yet been relaxed. As a result, we have had to make alternative arrangements to consult with residents about the review.”

He said public participation was the backbone of South Africa’s democracy.

“I would like to encourage each and every one of you to take the time and use this opportunity to voice what you would like to see happening in your ward.”

Comments and suggestions on the ward priorities can be submitted to the IDP section, headed by Colleen Dreyer, or dropped into one of the comment boxes at the ward offices, libraries and main administration units.

The closing date for submissions is Friday, February 26, 2021.
