REGIONAL SERVICE DELIVERY APPROACH

The City of Tshwane’s approved macro structure has led to the re-engineering of the Municipality to better perform its functions as a developmental local government.

A noticeable character of the new institutional arrangements is the introduction of the regional services model which aims to bring government and services closer to the people and improve service delivery.

REGIONAL INFORMATION

Locality

Region 1 is situated in the north-western part of the Metropolitan area, to the north-west of the CBD and to the west of the Wonderboom area (Region 2).

The region can be reached via the R80-Mabopane Highway (PWV 9), which links the region with the central regions of the metropolitan area. This road provides a north-south linkage but does not continue further north to link the area beyond the municipal boundaries.

The Bakwena Platinum Highway (PWV 2) that links the region with the N1 freeway to the east and to the west links the area with Rustenburg and the Northwest Province. Generally regional accessibility within this area is poor although the PWV2 has improved the situation considerably since its construction. The link to the southern portions of Gauteng and the Tshwane Capital Core is poor and will only improve once the PWV 9 has been completed in the western side of Tshwane.

DEMOGRAPHIC OVERVIEW

POPULATION SIZE AND COMPOSITION

An estimated population figure for this area suggests 811 570 people in 2011. (Stats SA Census 2011) this is approximately 28% of the total population of the City of Tshwane 2 921 488​

SOCIO- ECONOMIC DATA

Levels of education:

11 % of adults have no schooling 

17 % of adults within the region are schooled up to grade 12.

Only 1 % of the adult population has a degree.

The population of the region has a low level of education compared to other metropolitan planning regions.

Economically Active Population:

Only 235 075 of the region's economically active population is employed; this is 20% of the total of employed population in Tshwane (Source:  Statistics SA Census 2011)

Approximately 127 000 of economically active persons are permanently unemployed. This is approximately 19 % of the population and excludes those that cannot work, could not find work or are only seasonally employed.


Source: Gautrans Road Planning: 2010

Dominant area of employment:

Although there are industrial areas within the region, the dominant area of employment is still the CBD of Tshwane.

Household Income:

The population generally has low-income levels. 40% of the population reported during the 2001 Census to have no formal income and 16% of the population earned a monthly income of less than R1600, 00

Type of accommodation

29% of the Region 1 population live in informal settlements.

In comparison to other industrial areas of the metropolitan area, the region does not have a significant number of workshops or commercial uses such as warehouses, stores and wholesale.

This analysis therefore clearly indicates that the industrial area in Region 1 is highly specialised and offers the potential to be extended to include further secondary sector elements.

Region 1 has 28 Wards (Wards 2, 4, 9, 11, 12, 19, 20, 21, 22, 24, 25, 26, 27, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 39, 88, 89, 90, 94 and 98) in Soshanguve, Mabopane, Winterveld, Ga-Rankuwa and Pretoria North
