Development plan gets the nod

2017-08-17 06:06

THE Kouga Council held two successful rounds of IDP and budget consultation meetings during their first year in office, with good public participation in all wards.

The Kouga Integrated Development Plan (IDP) is a five-year plan that sets out the needs of all 15 municipal wards. It is put together in consultation with communities and is reviewed every year.

Executive Mayor Elza van Lingen said Council was grateful for the active interest that was shown by communities in putting together the new IDP for the period 2017 to 2022.

“It was wonderful to meet so many of our residents and to hear what they want to see happen in their wards.

“This input helped us to decide how to split the budget for 2017/18 and which projects were prioritised.

“We hope to see an even larger number of residents at the public meetings when we start planning for the coming year,” she said.

The Kouga IDP 2017/2022 was unanimously adopted by Council on 31 May 2017.

Public meetings to review the document for the 2018/2019 year will be advertised on the municipality’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/kouganews and local media.
