Umzimvubu Local Municipality’s Integrated Development Plan (IDP) roadshows are currently underway. The consultative process is mandated by the Local Government Systems Act no 32 of 2000 and this Act calls for municipalities to encourage and create conditions for the local community to participate in the affairs of the municipality. The roadshows therefore serve as the forum of engaging and listening to the views of the communities and business sectors within Umzimvubu.

On that note, Umzimvubu Local Municipality would like to invite and encourage all citizens to effectively participate in the IDP meetings to ensure that their ward projects are prioritised by the municipality.

According to the Honourable Mayor, Cllr B.P Mabengu, “It is imperative that we provide people with dignified basic services through infrastructure, water & sanitation and electricity. There are areas within Umzimvubu that have been identified for infrastructure development which will assist in the socio-economic growth. She further added, “That one of the objectives of this IDP roadshow is to present the draft IDP projects and draft budget for 2018/2019 financial year before it is tabled to the council for adoption.”

The road shows began on the 16th of April 2018 and will continue until the 23rd of April 2018.
