The meetings started at Ward 1 at the Oyster Bay Community Hall last night, and the Sea Vista Community Hall in the venue of this evening’s meeting at 6 pm.

On Wednesday, 8 November, it will be the turn of Ward 2 residents, whose meeting will be held at the Pellsrus Community Hall, also starting at 6pm.

Communities invited to help review the IDP

October 5, 2015

All residents of the Kouga are invited to participate in the review of the municipality’s Integrated Development Plan (IDP).

da values

The IDP is a five year plan that sets out the development needs of a municipal area. It forms the basis of the municipality’s budget and determines which projects are prioritised and funded in a particular year.

The most recent IDP for Kouga covers the planning period 2012 to 2017. Because circumstances change, the IDP is reviewed annually in consultation with communities to ensure that it remains up-to-date and relevant. The current review will be for the 2016/2017 financial year.

Public meetings will be held from 15 October to 10 November 2015 at community halls across Kouga to give residents the opportunity to highlight development they would like to see happening in their wards.

All meetings will start at 6pm as per the following programme:

  • 15 October at the Newton Hall, Jeffreys Bay, for Wards 3, 8 and 11
  • 20 October at the Pellsrus Community Hall for Ward 2
  • 27 October at the Katrien Felix Hall, Thornhill, for Ward 7
  • 27 October at the Loerie Community Hall for Ward 7
  • 28 October at a tent adjacent to Lungiso High, KwaNomzamo, for Ward 6
  • 3 November at the Dan Sandi Hall, Patensie, for Ward 10
  • 4 November at the Weston Community Hall for Ward 13
  • 5 November at the Vusumzi Landu Hall, Hankey, for Ward 9
  • 10 November at the Pellsrus Community Hall for Wards 14 and 15
  • 11 November at the Sea Vista Community Hall for Ward 12
  • 12 November at the Oyster Bay Community Hall for Ward 1
