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




                                                                                                 1. INTRODUCTION
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.

2.6.1 ENVIRONMENTAL NEEDS IDENTIFIED

• Protect and conserve the natural
  environment. A limited amount of
  environmentally sensitive land has been
  formally conserved. There is a need to rely
  on the co-operation of private landowners,




                                                                                2.6 THE ENVIRONMENT
  particularly as valuable natural areas are
  often found on privately owned land.

• Ensure     sustainability (adopt   an
  environmental management plan for the
  region)

• Incorporate environmental      aspects   into
  strategic planning.

• Assess in detail the effect of development on
  the environment and consider the
  opportunities and constraints, which the
  environment places on development.

• The region includes the critical upper
  catchment areas, including those of some of
  KwaZulu Natal’s most important rivers. It is
  crucial that proper catchment management
  plans are drawn up and implemented in
  order to ensure the sustainable use and
  management of these areas.

2.7.1 KEY INSTITUTIONAL ISSUES

 1.         Current functional structure of the uMgungundlovu District Municipality was designed primarily for a project funding institution, viz. the




                                                                                                                                                         2.7 THE DISTRICT MUNICIPALITY
            JSB and Regional Council. In order to achieve its developmental mandate this structure will need to be revised.
 2.         A proposed revision of the functional structure is available, but uncertainty regarding functions and powers may delay the
            implementation thereof.
 3.         Clarity on the division of functions and powers needs to be established in order for the functional structure of the Municipality to be
            finalised.
 4.         Recommendations are currently being awaited from the Demarcation Board regarding the allocation of functions and powers.

 5.         Key requirements for the transformation of the District Council were indicated in the Amalgamation Plan. It is anticipated that funding
            for a number of listed requirements will not be made available.
 6.         Uncertainty relating to functions and powers impacts on the morale of staff who have now gone through several transformation
            processes.
 7.         The Municipality is set to move offices in the near future which may impact on its delivery of services.

 8.         The registry system of the municipality is outdated and requires revision to bring it in line with the requirements of the Registry Act.

 9.         The establishment of a district-wide IT system is under consideration. The need and practicalities relating to the implementation of
            such a system needs to be investigated.
 10.        It must be ensured that the procurement policy of the Municipality is in line with national requirement. The procurement policy must
            support the principles of affirmative action and Black Economic Empowerment.
 11.        The uMgungundlovu District Municipality will need to develop a range of by-laws relating to its allocated functions. The budget and
            capacity to develop these currently does not exist.
 12.        There exists substantial requirements for corporate marketing and awareness programmes to establish the District Municipality as a
            new authority. The council lacks funding to achieve this.
 13.        The impact of HIV/AIDS specifically on the staff of the Municipality needs to be considered and planned for.

 14.        The integration of the Employment Equity Act and the Skills Development Act on the human resources function of the
            uMgungundlovu District Municipality should be considered.
 15.        The implications of the Information Act on administrative processes of the Municipality needs to be considered.

 16.        The development of the skills of the staff of the Municipality is viewed as a key issue to be addressed in future planning activities.
            These skills must specifically relate to the developmental goals which the council will identify.

• Legal support required for the collection of outstanding levels is expensive
  and provision should possibly be made to undertake this function internally.
• The reliance of the District Municipality exclusively on the levy income and
  conditional grants and other creative approaches to obtaining development
  funds should be investigated.
• Although the Municipality have the option for gearing further loan funding
  this is not viewed as a viable alternative at present.
• The Structures Act makes the District Municipality responsible for a number
  of unfunded mandates. Clarity is required as to where funding for these
  functions should be sourced.
• The allocation of conditional grants are currently done on a project-by-
  project basis. Historically allocations to Sub-Regions was based on the
  percentage of the population of the Regional Council residing in the Sub-
  Region. Alternative approaches to the allocation of this funding needs to be
  considered (see DC22 IDP for proposals in this regard).
• Other sources of funding for capital development is available through the
  housing and land reform programmes. The approach to be followed to
  securing such funding from the relevant departments is, however, unclear.

but with due consideration of the vision, objectives, resources available and
the decision-support framework (or implementation framework). The steps
included:

• Step 1: Strategic Issues: As identified in Phase 1 of the IDP process
• Step 2: Vision and Mission: Developed at a RF meeting based on the
strategic issues identified.
• Step 3: Considering the Decision Support Framework: This includes
consideration of the Spatial Development Framework, the Planning
Standards,, the financial strategy and the institutional strategy.
• Step 4: Working objectives: Developed through focussed workshops
with the Technical Team and approved at a RF meeting. These reflect the
performance indicators for the 5-year planning period for each of the
strategic issues identified.
• Step 5: Resource Framework: This step identified specifically human
and financial resources available for addressing the various strategic
issues. All relevant government departments were approached to determine
the extent of funding available.
• Step 6: Developing the strategies: Developed in focussed work-
shops. Following the generation of alternative strategies in the focussed
workshops the final strategies to be implemented were selected.
• Step 7: Projects: Projects were identified in Technical Team meetings,
RF meetings and focussed workshops.

effluent, polluted runoff from poorly serviced settlements.
Catchment degradation: inappropriate agricultural
development, destruction of wetland areas, soil erosion.

OVERVIEW OF APPROACH
The activities of the District with regard to Disaster Management




                                                                                                    3.4.12.1 ADDRESSING THE ISSUE
is guided by the Disaster Management Bill. In terms of the Bill the
District is required to develop a Disaster Management Plan and
establish a Disaster Management Centre. Preventative disaster
management will be a key goal of District Municipality and will be
promoted for all the development activities within the District.

BASIC GOALS OF THE APPROACH
In developing the strategies for addressing the issue a number of
basic goals to be achieved have been established. These goals
include:

• to establish a District Disaster Management Plan which will
inform the formulation of local disaster management plans;
• to establish a District Disaster Management Centre guided by
the Disaster Management Bill;
• to maximise the utilisation of existing resources for disaster
management purpose as opposed to developing new capacity;
and
• to ensure that approaches to implement preventative disaster
management are in place to guide all developmental activities in
the District.

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

4.5.5.1 BUILD ON DISTRICT SYSTEM OF ACCESS
A primary spatial concept is utilising the existing
spatial structure in informing a future spatial




                                                                                       4.5.3 BUILDING THE FRAMEWORK
framework for development. Key in this regard is
adopting the existing system of access as a starting
point in developing a spatial framework. District 22
contains a well defined network of higher order
linkages which extend beyond the district, integrating                 HIGHER ORDER
the district with development opportunity within the                      ACCESS
wider region and province. The movement systems
therefore are critical in structuring space.

In adopting movement systems as structuring devices,
it is important to consider the role of these systems.
Not only do they facilitate access; these systems also
carry flows of economic threshold and link key
economic centres. Further, in many cases movement
systems represent the urban component of the natural
environment and attract settlement. As such, given the
varied functions of movement systems, viz.: economic
connectors, settlement lines, it is important that in
developing a spatial framework, movement systems
are acknowledged as supporting a wider function.

A primary spatial concept therefore is adopting
movement systems as key structuring devices of the
spatial framework and in utilising movement systems
as activity systems which structure settlement growth
and which serve as investment lines.

4.5.5.2 IDENTIFY NON-NEGOTIABLES
An important development issue within the district is
development pressure associated with settlement
growth. Key expressions of this include growth within
the peri-urban districts, growth within the agricultural
                                                                        NATURAL SPACE

within the urban edge. Various projects aimed at
addressing growth have taken place and are planned                       HIGHER ORDER
through the implementation of the land reform and                           ACCESS
housing programme. It is likely that a substantially
larger initiative is likely to be realised through the
implementation of the rural housing programme as
well as the implementation of the regional land reform
programme.

It is essential that in accommodating growth through
housing and/or land reform programmes that such
growth does not undermine key natural assets as well
as the agricultural base associated with District 22. A
primary concept therefore is identifying the non-
negotiables in developing a spatial framework. Key
areas of significance in this regard include:
     • The environmental uniqueness and character of
       Umgungundlovu
     • Functional ecological zones and corridors
       associated with major rivers
     • Landscape potentials including topographic
       features, backdrops, escarpments etc
     • Nature reserves, and
     • Managing growth within prime agricultural land.

4.5.5.3 MAINTAIN CONTACT BETWEEN DIFFERENT LANDSCAPES
A unique strength of Umgungundlovu is the ability to
experience differing landscapes within close proximity.
At a regional level, the district has the highest degree
of diversity containing substantial urban centres, rural
                                                                                           NATURAL SPACE

It is important that spatial structuring acknowledges                                          ACCESS
the uniqueness found in local places and the diversity                                       CONNECTING

should maximise on the potential of offering contact
between different landscapes. Ensuring the vitality of
different landscapes also implies the need to protect
the integrity of each system.

Therefore essential spatial concepts include:                                                       URBAN

4.5.5.4 ENSURE ACCESS TO A HIERARCHY OF CENTRES
The equitable distribution of services and facilities
forms a primary goal. It has implications for social
upliftment and development and in developing a
sustainable local economic base. Therefore, the
                                                                                                  NATURAL SPACE
spatial instruments adopted in distributing services
and facilities are fundamentally linked to the social
and economic performance of the district as a whole.                                               HIGHER ORDER

The concept for distribution of services and facilities is                                          CONNECTING
based on providing a hierarchy of service centres.                                                  DIFFERENT

The following are considered important in applying this
concept:

   • A primary point of reference is incorporating
     existing centres in the overall hierarchy,                                                            URBAN
