IDP & Spatial Development Framework

Since the first democratic elections in South Africa in 1994, the nature and functions of municipalities changed drastically, with more emphasis being placed on the developmental role of local authorities. Developmental local government means a commitment to working with citizens to find sustainable ways to meet their social, economic and material needs to improve the quality of their lives. A duty is also placed on local authorities to ensure that development policies and legislation are implemented. Preference must therefore be given to this duty when managing the administrative and budgetary processes of the municipality.

The Constitution of the Republic of South Africa (1996) commits government to take reasonable measures, within its available resources, to ensure that all South Africans have access to adequate housing, health care, education, food, water and social security. The current goal of municipalities is to establish a planning process which is aimed at the redress of the imbalances created by the apartheid era. Developmental local government can only be realised through integrated development planning and specifically the compilation of an Integrated Development Plan (IDP).
