SPATIAL DELIVERY HIERARCHY, SERVICE DELIVERY AND GROWTH STIMULATION PLAN
INTEGRATED ADMINISTRATIVE AND SERVICE DELIVERY SYSTEM
Each of these clusters is to follow the following generic systematic and planning steps during gap analysis and target setting:
Situation analysis ("Where are we now and where are we coming from")
Situation Projection ("Where are we heading towards")
Objective and Target Setting ("Where should we be heading towards")
Strategy formulation “(How best to get at our destination?)”
Research and Development proposals ( "How to fill the gaps")
Formulate Action Plan for implementation ("Who should do what, when and where")
Monitoring and evaluation ("How are we doing and how should we adjust?)
Because all these clusters have integrated spatial, policy, legislation, institutional and delivery implications, it is important that an overall consolidation and reconciliation be performed as follows:
Policy and legislation should be streamlined into harmonised policy statements and simplified legislation that guarantees progress and delivery between and across the clusters. Potential investors and developers must be given complete answers within a time horizon of at most three months.
In spatial context, common agreement must be reached regarding environmentally sensitive areas requiring different conservation measures as well as focus areas for basic need delivery, economic growth stimulation, and central place hierarchy for service delivery to be applied. It is simply not feasible or reasonable to expect full service delivery and economic growth at each locality.
An integrated administrative and service delivery system with structures, functions and procedures that promises efficiency, accountability and sound ethics to its customer base must be designed and implemented.
From the North West Province integrated planning model the focus of North West 2010 is very clear. North West 2010 must become a Provincial Development Framework and Plan that is in synchronisation with National and World policy ground-rules, but also one that takes cognisance of provincial and spatial realities. A common Framework and Plan must be established that in turn guide and lead all provincial sector, spatial and organisation plans, programmes, budgets and projects.
Lastly a monitoring and evaluation system must be designed and put in place that will allow flexibility and review within the framework established whenever circumstances dictate. Provincial management must be held responsible and accountable for regular performance and achievement reporting and auditing.
