Abstract

The next decade of planning in South African municipalities under democracy has dawned. The previous decade was characterised by drafting, reviewing and assessing outcomes of Integrated Development Plans (IDPs). Through the Local Government Municipal Systems Act, 32 of 2000 and Sections 152/3 of the South African Constitution, 1996, local government is responsible for development processes and municipal planning. It requires from municipalities to formulate and review IDPs. Two "generations" of IDPs were drafted and reviewed from 2001 to 2011 by KwaZulu-Natal municipalities. The Department of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs (COGTA) and its predecessors evaluated and measured legal compliance of drafting, approval and submission processes. Identification of factors critical to planning, observations and recommendations for IDPs are captured in this article. Direction, formulation and evaluation of third-generation IDPs for periods 2012/13 to 2016/17 municipal financial years is a focus of this article. The article also examines compliance, by focusing on quality and improvement of IDPs.


Die tweede dekade van beplanning vir Suid-Afrika se munisipaliteite onder demokrasie het aangebreek. Die vorige dekade is deur die formulering, hersiening en evaluering van die uitkomste van Geïntegreerde Ontwikkelingsplanne (GOPe) gekenmerk. Ooreenkomstig die Plaaslike Regering: Munisipale Stelsels Wet, Wet No. 32 van 2000, en artikels 152/3 van die Grondwet van Suid-Afrika, 1996, is plaaslike regering vir ontwikkelingsprosesse en munisipale beplanning verantwoordelik. Dit word dus van munisipaliteite verwag om GOPe op te stel en te hersien. Vanaf 2001 tot en met 2011 is twee "generasies" GOPe deur die munisipaliteite van KwaZulu-Natal opgestel en hersien. Die Department van Samewerkende Regering en Tradisionele Sake (DSRTS) en sy voorgangers het planne geëvalueer en gekyk of dit aan die wetlike vereistes vir opstel, goedkeuring en indiening voldoen. Faktore van deurslaggewende belang vir beplanning, waarneming en aanbevelings vir GOPe word in die artikel beskryf. Daar word op die beleidsrigting, opstel en evaluering van die derde generasie GOpe vir die tydperk van munisipale finansiële jare vanaf 2012/13 tot 2016/17 gefokus. Die artikel ondersoek die nakoming van faktore soos kwaliteit en verbetering van die GOPe.

Uphinde ubuke udlela, ukulotshwa kanye nokuhlolwa kokudidiyelwa kwesithathu kwezinHlelo Zentuthuko oludidiyelwe lweminyaka yezimali yomasipala ka-2012/13 kuya ku-2016/17. Leliphepha libuye libhekisise nokuvumelana nenhloso noma nenjongo kwizinga kanye nasekuthuthukeni kwezinHlelo Zentuthuko oludidiyelwe.
