The Overberg District Municipality commits itself to the integration of environmental considerations in its strategic planning initiatives such as the Integrated Development Plan (IDP) and Spatial Development Framework (SDF).
Spatial Development Framework
‘To optimize the rich and balanced mix of the Overberg’s agriculture, tourism, heritage, conservation resources (including natural and scenic resources) and eco system services within their scenic setting which is contained by the Riviersonderend and Langeberg mountains in the north, descends across the rolling hills of the Rûens and the varied ecology of the Agulhas plain and culminates in the rocky headlands and long sandy beaches of the Atlantic and Indian oceans.”
This section sets out the main policy and principle informants for the SDF.
Regional Geographic Information System (GIS) database
The environmental management section will source relevant and up to date GIS information form credible sources. All GIS information will be based on vector mapping data standards.
In an attempt to maintain the GIS database information will be sourced from relevant departments and create linkages with other database source.
This GIS information will be used in the context of spatial planning, environmental- and coastal management monitoring and development application evaluation.Last published 09 October 2018
