4 IYER ROTHAUG / LINDA MASINGA PROJECT TEAM EXECUTIVE SUMMARY UMGUNGUNDLOVU DISTRICT MUNICIPALITY INTEGRATED DEVELOPMENT PLAN 1.1 BACKGROUND 1.1.1 THE CONTEXT OF THE PLAN Local government elections and the implementation of local government legislation, most notably the Municipal Systems Act, No 32 of 2000, has resulted in the restructuring of local government. New municipal entities have replaced previous Regional Councils and associated Sub-regions. The restructuring includes new boundaries as a result of the Municipal Demarcation process, as well as new roles and responsibilities within the general ambit of fostering developmental local government. As a result of local government restructuring within the KwaZulu Natal midlands region, the newly formed Umgungundlovu District Council (DC22) was created. The Umgungundlovu Municipality is responsible for and represents the major portion of the previous iNdlovu Regional Council and is an amalgamation of several of the previous sub-regions. The current ethos which drives municipal restructuring, and now functioning, is ensuring responsive and developmental local governance. A shift from traditional administrative functions, with minimal development intervention, characteristic of the past, to a proactive deliverer of services is a fundamental change confronting most municipalities. In achieving such, integrating development need, forward planning and strategy with municipal budgeting is an essential ingredient in pursuing developmental local government. It is mandatory through the Municipal Systems Act, that Integrated Development Plans (IDPs) be prepared. 1. INTRODUCTION
5 IYER ROTHAUG / LINDA MASINGA PROJECT TEAM EXECUTIVE SUMMARY UMGUNGUNDLOVU DISTRICT MUNICIPALITY INTEGRATED DEVELOPMENT PLAN 1.2 THE PLANNING PROCESS 1.2.1 OBJECTIVES OF THE IDP PROCESS The terms of reference for the IDP established by the uMgungundlovu District Municipality sets out the following key objectives: To complete an IDP in terms of current legislation, most notably the Municipal Systems Act; To prepare such a plan through a process of public participation; To ensure the creation of a strategic instrument that guides planning, budgeting, management and decision making within the municipality; To pursue integrated development in taking up the challenge of preparing an IDP; To ensure that the IDP is driven by an understanding of the issues and challenges confronting the district and to respond in a manner which establishes a strategic framework comprising of an appropriate vision, strategy, sectoral programmes, performance indicators, all underpinned by an appropriate financial framework. Phase 1: Analysis Assessment of existing development Priority issues or problems Phase 2: Strategies The vision, Objectives, Strategies, Identified projects Performance indicators, Project outputs, targets, Project related activities and time schedule, Cost and budget estimates Sectoral Programmes, 5 year capital investment programme, Integrated Spatial Development Framework, Institutional plan Phase 3: Projects Phase 4: Integration Phase 5: Approval 1.2.2 THE IDP PROCESS IN THE UMGUNGUNDLOVU DISTRICT COUNCIL The project Terms of Reference and Process Plan prepared by the Umgungundlovu District Municipality sets out clearly the project methodology based on the IDP guidelines. The diagram on the right identifies the key elements of the methodology and the expected outputs per phase. Importantly, this report represents Phase 4 of the IDP and is intended to serve as a consolidation of the process reflecting the key outcomes of the earlier phases.
6 IYER ROTHAUG / LINDA MASINGA PROJECT TEAM EXECUTIVE SUMMARY UMGUNGUNDLOVU DISTRICT MUNICIPALITY INTEGRATED DEVELOPMENT PLAN 1.3 USING THE IDP 1.3.1 THE IDP AT A GLANCE The IDP documents a process which has evolved over several months. This process comprised of technical phases of study coupled with an extensive participation process. The IDP in its entirety however, represents more than what can be captured on paper. As a point of departure therefore, this document must be viewed as a synopsis and is not intended to serve as a comprehensive record of the IDP. This IDP is a living plan! In taking development forward within Umgungundlovu, it is necessary to provide a synopsis of the key processes that emerged through the IDP. This document serves that purpose. It is structured in a succinct and graphic manner drawing from the various phase reports established through the process. Emphasis has been placed on issues needed to facilitate development. The bulk of the report therefore is focused on THE STRATEGIC PROGRAMME which represents the integration and backbone of the IDP and provides useful information in facilitating delivery.It is envisaged that this section of report becomes the day to day working plan for the district municipality. It is important that it is read in conjunction with the more detail phase reports. These reports are attached as annexures and provide greater technical detail and background. The overall structure to this report is indicated in the diagram on the right.

7 IYER ROTHAUG / LINDA MASINGA PROJECT TEAM EXECUTIVE SUMMARY UMGUNGUNDLOVU DISTRICT MUNICIPALITY INTEGRATED DEVELOPMENT PLAN 2. THE CURRENT REALITY STRATEGIC ISSUE STATEMENT OF ISSUE LAND REFORM & HOUSING Housing and land reform activities to date has not been successful in addressing the needs of the majority of the population of the district. However, housing and land reform provides a key opportunity for obtaining development funding and therefore promoting development. A FOCUS ON RURAL PEOPLE ACCESS TO INFRASTRUC- TURE A large proportion of the district population does not have access to appropriate and affordable levels of infrastructure. This impacts on general levels of health and welfare. In areas where infrastructure does exist it is often not maintained. ENVIRONMENT SUSTAINABILITY There exists a general lack of awareness regarding the environment within the District and specifically as it relates to development activities within the district. Key environmental issues facing the District in this regard includes solid waste management, water pollution and catchment degradation. GENDER EQUITY Due to a variety of reasons viz. how society defines roles, socially constructed attributes associated with being male/female etc. there generally does not exist equity in development processes. This lack of equity impacts on all levels of development, from the management of development to the beneficiaries of development. 70% of the rural population of the district resides on Ingonyama land and the remainder can classified as farm workers or farm residents. Limited development serving these groups has occurred in the in the past. Service delivery in these areas are ad hoc and uncoordinated. A low level of tenure security experienced by both groups.
8 IYER ROTHAUG / LINDA MASINGA PROJECT TEAM EXECUTIVE SUMMARY UMGUNGUNDLOVU DISTRICT MUNICIPALITY INTEGRATED DEVELOPMENT PLAN STRATEGIC ISSUE STATEMENT OF ISSUE EDUCATION Education is referred to in its wider context to include school- based education, literacy and life skills training and specialised education (e.g. tertiary education). The access of communities to appropriate and high quality education is limited, this impacting directly on social and economic development.. ADDRESSING HEALTH Various factors impact on general health conditions of the population of the district including poor sanitation, lack of access to water, epidemics such as AIDS and cholera, limited health facilities and others. AIDS The HIV/AIDS epidemic affects all sectors of society within the District. As there is currently no cure for HIV/AIDS it will continue to also impact negatively on all development sectors, i.e. social, economic, infrastructure and welfare sectors. The current uncoordinated approach to addressing the predisposing factors and symptoms of the disease is a concern. SPORT & RECREATION At present sport and recreationis not provided the prominent place which it deserves in development policies. This sector can contribute to educating the youth, building a sense of community and in the medium to longer term reducing crime levels. Lack of facilities is a major constraint in this sector and in many cases facilities that exist are inappropriate. ART & CULTURE At present arts and culture is not provided the prominent place which it deserves in development policies. This sector can contribute to educating the youth, building a sense of community and promote economic development. Lack of facilities is a major constraint in this sector and in many cases facilities that exist are inappropriate. FOCUS ON THE YOUTH Statistics indicate that a high proportion of the uMgungundlovu population (approx. 50%) falls within the 0 to 19 years age category. No specific focus has previously been placed on planning with needs of this group in mind. This group represents those most vulnerable to the AIDS pandemic, unemployment and other social ills. Redirecting development spending to target this group will be an investment in the future.
9 IYER ROTHAUG / LINDA MASINGA PROJECT TEAM EXECUTIVE SUMMARY UMGUNGUNDLOVU DISTRICT MUNICIPALITY INTEGRATED DEVELOPMENT PLAN STRATEGIC ISSUE STATEMENT OF ISSUE DISASTER MANAGEMENT The District is faced by a wide variety of disasters the extent of which differs substantially. At present disaster management in the district is uncoordinated and the only substantial capacity exists with the Msunduzi Municipality. This impacts substantially on the ability of the District to fulfill its role in terms of disaster management. CRIME Crime and security is within the South African context an issue impacting negatively on all sectors of society and therefore also on most development activities. Failure to address the issue of crime/security will impact negatively on the Integrated Development process and future initiatives of the District. POVERTY ALLEVIATION Poverty is a multi- faceted problem which requires a multi- pronged approach for its eradication. Although poverty alleviation is the focus of activities of various departments these initiatives are said to have had limited success to date. Lack of coordination is often indicated to be a key contributor to the lack of success. UNEMPLOYMENT Unemployment levels are generally high ranging from 52% in Impendle to 39% in uMshwati, Msunduzi and Richmond respectively. Unemployment will impact on development in a number of ways, viz. it impacts on affordability levels of services, the access of communities to services, levels of crime, general health and welfare etc. INVESTMENT Attracting investment to the region is essential for ensuring sustained economic development. Levels of investment is, however, low which is attributed to a number of reasons. Attracting investment will require a sustained effort from all stakeholders within the municipality.
10 IYER ROTHAUG / LINDA MASINGA PROJECT TEAM EXECUTIVE SUMMARY UMGUNGUNDLOVU DISTRICT MUNICIPALITY INTEGRATED DEVELOPMENT PLAN The Strategic Programme represents the backbone of the IDP. This programme indicates how the District Municipality sees development within its area unfolding over the next 5 years (2002 – 2006), but specifically for the remainder of the term of the current Council. The Strategic Programme for uMgungundlovu was developed with the full participation of all stakeholders through a series of Representative Forum meetings and focussed workshops (a workshop on each of the Strategic Issue). The Strategic Programme achieves the following: through the Vision and Mission: it focuses all activities of the District to achieving one common vision accepted by all stakeholders within the Municipality; through the Objectives: it sets the broad Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for the Council and it’s officials also focussing the efforts of the Municipality on achieving these specific objectives. through the Strategies: it indicates how the Council, over the next five years, will set out firstly to achieve its objectives and ultimately its vision; and through the Projects: it provides substance to the strategies by indicating the activities and projects relating to each strategy which the Council will set out to implement. On the basis of the above the Strategic Programme section of the IDP is divided into three sections. The Introduction – The remainder of this section explains the approach taken to the development of strategies and the identification of projects. The Vision and Mission – Which clearly states the direction in terms of which the Council wishes to develop over the next 5-years and thereafter. Unpacking the Strategic Issues (Integration Reports) – Focussing on those issues identified in Phase 1 of the process it sets out to develop the approach which the Municipality and Stakeholders will take to addressing the Strategic Issues. It identifies and summarises each of the Strategic Issues, it identifies the resources available for addressing the strategic issue, it sets objectives and strategies and then finally provide an overview of identified projects related to each of the strategic issues ABOUT THE STRATEGIC PROGRAMME 3. THE STRATEGIC PROGRAMME

15 IYER ROTHAUG / LINDA MASINGA PROJECT TEAM EXECUTIVE SUMMARY UMGUNGUNDLOVU DISTRICT MUNICIPALITY INTEGRATED DEVELOPMENT PLAN OVERVIEW OF IMPLEMENTATION FRAMEWORK The Strategies and Projects identified in the IDP cannot be viewed in isolation as a number of broader frameworks will give direction to the implementation thereof. This section, the Implementation Framework, provides an overview of this broader context which will support and direct the implementation of the IDP. The implementation framework includes a number of components, viz. The allocation of Functions and Powers The Financial Strategy The Integrated Institutional Strategy The Spatial Framework The Planning Standards Each of these components will be discussed in more detail to clearly establish the context for the implementation of the IDP. 4. IMPLEMENTATION FRAMEWORK
16 IYER ROTHAUG / LINDA MASINGA PROJECT TEAM EXECUTIVE SUMMARY UMGUNGUNDLOVU DISTRICT MUNICIPALITY INTEGRATED DEVELOPMENT PLAN 4.1 ALLOCATION OF FUNCTIONS & POWERS THE ALLOCATION OF FUNCTIONS AND POWERS The uMgungundlovu District Municipality makes a distinction between four broad categories of functions in terms of which the District should consider its functions and powers. The interim approach, for the purpose of preparing the IDP, regarding the allocation of these functions and powers is discussed in more detail in Annexure 1 attached to the IDP.

17 IYER ROTHAUG / LINDA MASINGA PROJECT TEAM EXECUTIVE SUMMARY UMGUNGUNDLOVU DISTRICT MUNICIPALITY INTEGRATED DEVELOPMENT PLAN 4.3 THE FINANCIAL AND INSTITUTIONAL STRATEGY BACKGROUND TO FINANCIAL STRATEGY A detailed financial strategy for the IDP was compiled by the Financial Services Department of the uMgungundlovu District Municipality. This financial strategy is contained in Annexure 2 attached to this document. What follows is a short overview of the contents of the strategy. The financial strategy is an integral component of the IDP and addresses specifically: Funding availability over the 5-year planning period – 2002/3 financial year to 2006/7 financial year. The balancing of this limiting factor relating to income with objectives established in terms of the IDP. Establishing financial management systems and efficient, effective internal audit controls. CONTENTS OF THE FINANCIAL STRATEGY In order to address the above the following components are included in the financial strategy: Funding availability in the District Funding allocations to the Local Municipalities Strategies for Raising Revenue Financial Management Systems BACKGROUND TO THE INTEGRATED INSTITUTIONAL STRATEGY The Administrative Services Department of the District Municipality prepared a detailed project based integrated institutional strategy for the District. The project sheets relating to this strategy is reflected in Annexure 3 attached. The purpose of the strategy is to indicate by which management reforms and organisational arrangements the District wants to establish the institutional preparedness for the efficient implementation of the IDP. CONTENTS OF THE INTEGRATED INSTITUTIONAL STRATEGY The integrated institutional strategy addressess the following aspects: Institutional structuring for delivery: which includes institutional structuring, human resources management, skills development of staff Powers and functions including the Metropolitisation of the District Performance management Administrative processes An integrated communication plan Principles guiding the operation of the District Municipality

The main goals of such a structure include: Unwinds the legacy of Apartheid and which redresses past imbalances and promotes equity To promote an improved system of access, this includes both, physical access in terms of physical connection, but more fundamentally, this includes providing for improved access to social and economic opportunity. To integrate district space and link various settlements / opportunities into a functional and meaningful whole To provide a framework for managing development which includes identifying areas for investment, rehabilitation, protection. To maximise on inherent opportunities and potentials within the district in a way which promotes growth and investment. To create an overall system of opportunity which includes: Improved distribution of services Access to economic opportunity Access to improved facilities Treat to natural systems Prime location Limited development of tourism opportunities Significant agricultural production Dominance of PMB complex Complex land use mosaic Population concentration & pressure Uncontrolled / dispersed human settlement Lack of social and physical support structure KEY SPATIAL ISSUES IMPACTING ON THE DISTRICT

23 IYER ROTHAUG / LINDA MASINGA PROJECT TEAM EXECUTIVE SUMMARY UMGUNGUNDLOVU DISTRICT MUNICIPALITY INTEGRATED DEVELOPMENT PLAN THE 5-YEAR CAPITAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME The 5-year capital development programme for the uMgungundlovu District Municipality is reflected overleaf. The capital development programme presents a listing of all projects of a capital nature (this can also be referred to as the bricks-and- mortar type projects), i.e. require major capital investments. The focus of the capital development projects presented in this list is to provid communities within uMgungundlovu with access to basic services and infrastructure. In total it envisaged that at least R174 million worth of capital development will be implemented within the uMgungundlovu District Municipality over the next 5-year period. It is important to note that substantial portions of this envisaged spending still needs to be sourced from relevant government departments and service providers. Where uncertainty exists the extent of funding for capital development projects also needs to be confirmed which will increase this budget substantially. A major source of capital development within the District, the housing subsidies, is also not reflected in this programme as local municipalities will be the developers for such projects. THE 5-YEAR OPERATIONAL PROGRAMME The operational programme for the uMgungundlovu District Municipality follows the 5-year capital programme attached. The operational programme reflects other activities of the Municipality that needs to be engaged in over the next five financial years. These activities are sorted in terms of Strategic Issues and time frames. It will be noted that a large number of activities relate to the 2002/3 financial year. This indicates the number of activities viewed by the Municipality as priority activities. Further to this a large number of activities in the operational programme are indicated to be ongoing activities, i.e. activities with an unspecified duration which the Municipality will need to undertake on an ongoing basis. 5.
