Kouga Executive Mayor Elza van Lingen said the new Council wanted to ensure that everyone had a say in how their communities were governed and developed.

“One way communities can do this, is by participating actively in the IDP process,” she said.

“The IDP is the principal strategic planning tool of a municipality and forms the basis of the budget.

It is, therefore, important that all stakeholders have an input in its compilation.”
