East Rand: AfriForum branches involved in revision of municipal IDP

The AfriForum branches in the East Rand on 13 March 2018 held a workshop in Kempton Park on participation in the revision process of the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality’s Integrated Development Plan (IDP) that will take place during March and April.

The branches that participated includes Alberton, Benoni, Kempton Park, Edenvale, Germiston and Springs. This workshop focussed specifically on the participation of the respective branch management teams in the IDP processes, as well as how to compile and refine commentary thereon. Branch management will focus on municipal ordinances, the Municipal Spatial Development Framework (SDF) and the zoning of various open spaces.

“It is of cardinal importance that the public take note of the IDP process and participate in the public meetings that will be held in April 2018. We must have input in the allocation of resources and service delivery, as well as what the Municipality plans for each neighbourhood,” says Marie Naude, AfriForum’s Regional Coordinator for the East Rand.

The public participation meetings for April will take place as follows:

Alberton 17 April 2018 18:00 Alberton Civic Hall
