Integrated Development Plans (IDPs) are prerequisites for the effective functioning of municipalities in South Africa. The , 2000 (Act 32 of 2000) requires municipalities to introduce and comply with its stipulations for an effective and efficient municipal service delivery. This article observes features of the City of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality's (CTMM) IDP's compliance with the forgoing legislation. The article further discusses the conceptual foundation of the IDP in order to understand the context of CTMM's IDP. Of particular relevance, long-term developmental goals and strategies of the CTMM are observed as the main indicators of the municipality's compliance with the existing legislation. It is argued that the emphasis on involving stakeholders through varying networks and partnerships could be important in yielding fruitful service delivery results. Furthermore, it is suggested that the legislative specifications are too broad to be able to address service delivery problems within the CTMM and elsewhere in other municipalities.
