Key Development Projects at Msunduzi Municipality

T

he Msunduzi Municipality is the second largest in KwaZulu-Natal and is proudly the capital of the province, incorporating the picturesque city of Pietermaritzburg. The confirmation of capital status has entrenched the city’s role and position as the administrative and political hub of KwaZulu-Natal. Msunduzi is also moving in the direction of achieving metropolitan status.

Manaye Hall Precinct This investment development seeks to enhance and empower the economy and entrepreneurs within the Imbali area and surrounds, and will further provide a link with the existing value chain in the area.

The city is strategically located along the all-important Durban-Gauteng movement corridor, recognised in the National Development Plan for South Africa as Strategic Intervention Plan 2, commonly referred to as SIP2. Industrial development vision Msunduzi aims to see its industrial sector grow so that it remains the engine that powers the local economy, and that it does so with particular regard to providing dignified and safe work for its residents. Another goal is that the industrial and business sector stakeholders partner with the municipality in striving for a carbon neutral industrial future, which takes into account the critical need to prevent further climate change, and to ensure that there is protection of the environment comprising the people, the flora and the fauna that make up local ecosystems. This will ensure a truly sustainable future. KWAZULU-NATAL BUSINESS 2018/19
