Executive Director: Corporate and Planning Services 
Seraj Johaar​​​

The Corporate and Planning Services Department derives it mandate from Council’s key development objective, i.e. institutional development, the IDP and Planning Services.

It therefore means it is largely an internally focussed department with the primary aim of employee recruitment, development, enhanced and efficient administrative systems and planning services.

The strategic challenge for the municipality is to find better ways in delivering services to the Drakenstein community by effectively and efficiently utilising existing structures and mechanisms to address the needs of the community in a holistic and integrated manner.
