Public Participation

The PSDF provides the people of the Northern Cape with the opportunity to help formulate and give expression to a long-term vision for the Province. Active participation of all concerned is therefore a key requirement. The principle of inclusivity is embodied in the PSDF process and stakeholders will be consulted to the extent possible and practical. This will be ensured through scheduled meetings, workshops and information distribution. Meetings will be held in the main regional hubs of Kimberley, Upington, De Aar and Springbok and in smaller locations as may be required.

The PSDF process will be managed by a dedicated organisational structure comprising all relevant departments and other key stakeholders. Access to, and participation of, the lower sphere governments will be facilitated through existing communication structures.

These were presented with the aim of promoting the PSDF and to facilitate community public participation around the identification of and discussion of key issues relating to the planning vision of the Northern Cape Province.

Each event followed the same agenda that included information displays, handouts and flyers, a slideshow lecture and an audience participation session.
