Abstract:Post-apartheid South Africa promotes participatory planning to create a socially equitable and environmentally sustainable society. Stakeholders, including those from business and industry, commercial and subsistence farming, and urban and peri-urban residents, have varying needs. Therefore, sharing of resources and planning for social equality is particularly challenging. Toward this end, the Municipality of Stellenbosch has been divided into 19 wards that are no longer determined by race or class. A municipal-wide integrated development plan (IDP) has emerged out of decisions based on the needs of people in each of these 19 areas. Using the recent Boschendal (Dwars River Valley) development initiative as a case study, this article reflects on the relevance of the IDP planning model in achieving its stated goals of social equity and environmental sustainability. The supporting evidence presented focuses on stakeholder perceptions of the IDP and public participation process. Bibliogr., notes, ref., sum. [ASC Leiden abstract]
