If a project is to meet the needs of the local community, it is essential that the community be involved in the design and implementation of the project In the past local and provincial authorities embarked on infrastructural programmes according to their own priorities and availability of funds. In the new South Africa, this has changed. A new dimension has been added to infrastructural projects. It is now a prerequisite that community participation should occur from the initiation of any infrastructural project right through to final completion. Amendments to established implementation procedures, tender documentation and even construction processes should incorporate this new approach.
