CDM present DDM to IDP Rep Forum

Capricorn District Municipality held a successful Integrated Development Planning (IDP) representative forum to present the District Development Model (DDM) on 20 January 2020 at Bolivia Lodge in Polokwane.  The notice of the IDP Rep Forum was given in terms of Chapter 4 of the Local Government: Municipal Systems Act, No. 32 of 2000 in which the Executive Mayor of Capricorn District Municipality invited stakeholders to the Special IDP Representative Forum meeting to present the District Development Model (One Plan Approach) and the revised 2019/20 IDP/Budget Process Plan.

In his presentation, the Executive Mayor indicated that the DDM that was launched by President Cyril Ramaphosa in Lephalale in November 2019, is now spearheaded by the Office of the Premier and Department of Cooperative Governance, Human Settlements and Traditional Affairs (CoGHSTA).

The DDM will turn the District into a planning centre and coordinate the implementation of any type of a government project from all spheres. This will enable the district to coordinate and have an influence on where a new school will be built, where a road will be tarred, where a mine or shopping centre will be open or where a new clinic will be built. The Model is therefore anchored on one plan, one budget and one approach!
