EThekwini hosts Urban Strategic Planning Workshop for SALGA
MILE has facilitated several sessions ranging from Informal Economy and Councillor Support workshops for local government officials across South Africa. Following from this, the workshop on Urban Strategic Planning was conceptualised to respond to some of the key challenges that municipalities face. In its latest endeavour MILE has partnered with SALGA to host an Urban Strategic Planning Workshop for SALGA officials. The learning event was held at the Moses Mabhida Stadium from 23-25 August 2017.

Conceptualised to blend urban strategic planning with the art of facilitation, the workshop is centred on empowering SALGA officials from the Economic Development and Planning Directorate with the necessary tools to effectively facilitate Urban Strategic Planning in respective municipalities.

Strategic planning provides strategic direction for municipalities to improve service delivery.  The developed vision is used to guide and direct the municipalities planning, budgeting, resource allocation, sustainable development, stakeholder consultation and policies. This process is critical for municipalities in determining their strategic opportunities, challenges and develop a strategic action plan.

It is important for practitioners to grapple first with the processes of urban strategic planning towards the development of the town/ city economic regeneration strategies. The urban strategic planning and facilitation tools acquired will assist SALGA practitioners in the processes of developing the Town Regeneration and Regional Economic Development programme.
The learning event also provided a practitioner- to - practitioner based platform focusing on various areas key for local government development.
