Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality encourages residents to attend IDP/Budget roadshows

MAY 4, 2015

The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality will be hosting a series of public meetings to formulate the municipality's plans. The following will be discussed at the meetings: Draft 2015/16 Integrated Development Plan (IDP); Draft 2015 Metropolitan Spatial Development Framework; Draft 2015/16 Service Delivery & Budget Implementation Plan; and Draft 2015/16 to 2017/18 Budget.

The drafts plans are available on the municipal website

According to the municipality, the IDP is a key strategic planning tool, which informs its planning and budgeting processes. Informed by the needs of the people, this community- driven product will guide us in achieving an ideal developmental and caring society.

The principle behind public participation is that all the stakeholders affected by a public authority’s decision or actions have a right to be consulted and contribute to such a decision.

See attached here the schedule of public meetings from 5 to 18 May 2015.
