Project Background

The Emfuleni Local Municipality was awarded a grant through the National Treasury’s Neighborhood Development Partnership Grant Programme (NDPG), to assist in developing a medium to long-term planning strategy. Challenges to be addressed included:

  • Conflicting development ideas between the community/district/ National Treasury
  • Ensuring each township benefits from the NDPG funding while also aiming for optimal economic and sustainable results in the long run
  • Prioritizing projects
  • Approval of business and project plans for construction by National Treasury

Our Services

Advisian conducted extensive consultations at all phases of the project with community members, Local and District Municipalities and National Treasury by means of surveys, workshops and presentations. This research culminated in business and project plans submitted to National Treasury for funding approval.


The business and project plans, created to motivate the proposed planning projects, were approved by all parties and a total of R60 million was allocated for five of the proposed projects.
