Business Development

Summary of LED Catalytic Projects

In 2013 the Local and Economic Development and Tourism unit embarked on a process of consolidating our key economic development priorities as reflected in our current IDP which primarily focuses on the following:

  • Investment Job creation;
  • Domestic and Foreign Investment;
  • Urban Renewal;
  • Skills Development;
  • Rural Economic Development;
  • Facilitating Trade and Industry and a strong drive to build existing sectors and encourage the development of new sectors in our area.

Our approach to Local Economic Development is that economic development is not a linear approach but rather the outcome of a complex set of relationships which involve managing the key components of production and relying heavily on how the local communities and private sector respond to these interventions. We are therefore pleased that as a Municipality we have identified the following catalytic LED projects to position Drakenstein Municipality as an investment destination of choice.

a) Review of the LED Strategy - This process started in 2013 and culminated into the establishment of a bi-annual event where MAYCO meets the business sector to share important information on progress with regard to Economic Development and overall growth of the Municipality. The inaugural event was held on the 23rd of June 2015 where we shared the proposed LED Implementation plan which emanated from the review process.

The plan is built on three pillars namely:
1.Spatial Transfer
2.Business Promotion
3.Job Creation
