PUBLIC MEETING
INANDA DAM

INTEGRATED WATER RESOURCE MANAGEMENT
& PRECINCT PLAN: USE OF WATER FOR RECREATIONAL PURPOSES AND LAND BASED TOURISM DEVELOPMENT

Inanda Dam, lying dormant in the valley of 1000 hills since it?s construction in the early 1980?s, has been earmarked by the eThekwini Municipality as an important metropolitan tourism and recreational node. A node that can contribute significantly to economic development in the northern rural parts of the city.

Since the completion of the Inanda Dam Tourism Feasibility Study undertaken by the eThekwini Municipality, development pressures have mounted to capitalise on potential tourism assets in the Inanda/Umzinyathi sub-region in order also to take advantage of the proximity to the future Dube Tradeport. In this regard the private sector and community based entrepreneurs have began to show significant interest in Inanda Dam, as not only in its proximity to the planned International Airport, but also fits into the growing tourism demand for diversified tourism products that focus on scenic, cultural and nature-based tourism, that foreign tourists expect to find in Africa. The potentials to enhance the City?s sport tourism objectives are also a significant factor. The current challenge now is for all the different stakeholders to plan and manage the development of this asset in a manner, which ensures economic development for the people of the region while protecting the catchments area and function of the dam as a vital source of water.

In a joint partnership between eThekwini Municipality?s Rural Area Based Management Unit, affected Traditional Authorities, Department Water Affairs & Forestry (DWAF) and Umgeni Water, and the Inanda Dam Consortium lead by Maluleke Luthuli have been appointed to assist in the formulation of a Precinct Development Plan and Water Resource Management Plan (RMP) for the Inanda Dam. The Inanda Dam Consortium consists of a number of specialist companies relating to structural engineering, planning, land legal matters, environmental assessment, water resource management specialists and participation. The purpose of this planning exercise is to ensure the sustainable and equitable development, utilization and management of the Inanda Dam by compiling a RMP, based on the DWAF?s Guideline on Integrated Resource Planning for the Use of Water for Recreational purposes through a facilitated and consultative planning process. The plan would therefore manage and control the recreational (fishing, boating & water sport) use of the water surface area and unlock state owned land for public-private partnership development of tourism related projects and developmental sport. Surrounding communities will also benefit from this process through beneficiation of such projects and opportunities in sport development.

Interested and affected parties and surrounding communities are encouraged to participate in this planning exercise and stakeholder workshops. In view of the above you are accordingly invited to attend the first Public/Industry Stakeholder Meeting to be held on the 18th May 2007 @ 10am at the Hillcrest Town Hall (Delamore Road, next to Hillcrest Library). Subsequent community ward based workshops will be held in the month of May/June. Any further information, please contact the eThekwini Project Manager: Peter Gilmore on 031-2616640 / 0833788737/ email: <!-- e --><a href="mailto:gilmorep@durban.gov.za">gilmorep@durban.gov.za</a><!-- e -->.
