As a former participant in the Build Environment Support Programme (BESP) the George Municipality has a credible SDF which forms the basis of each of the Local SDF’s applicable to the various suburbs and precincts. The SDF addresses the impact of the economic downturn, custodianship over biodiversity areas, development of infrastructure and rural development. George Municipality recognises the important role it plays in ensuring an enabling environment for economic development as a means to sustainable livelihoods for its residents. In our strive toward administrative excellence our operating procedures are reviewed and developed on a continuous basis with the aim of delivering a service that is effective, fair, transparent and compliant.
