The City's regional services model and regional structures are an integral part of its rationale to bring services closer to the people and to transform regions into superb places to live, work and stay while capitalising on each regions' uniqueness to create strong, resilient and prosperous areas.
The City of Tshwane adopted its Integrated Development Plan (IDP) in 2011 which maps out the delivery agenda of the current term of office of the City for the period 2011 to 2016. As part of the process of establishing the seven (7) service delivery regions, the City have embarked on a process to develop Regional Integrated Development Plans (RIDPs) which will complement the City-wide IDP. These plans are taking their guidance from the City's IDP but will relate it in more detail at Regional level.
The regionalisation of service delivery refers to the decentralisation of certain operational and maintenance functions to regional offices. While functions such as strategic planning and the implementation of capital projects will remain the responsibility of the City of Tshwane Departments, daily functions such as maintenance and repairs, information desks, etc. will be delivered directly in the different regions.
The process of regionalisation is in the first of four stages, moving from the establishment of the region to the stabilisation, consolidation and sustaining of Regional services.
