Question Answer Description Datasource and Evidence Comment
Are there budgetary or institutional capacity for participatory planning in informal settlements? No Evidence

Without institutional capacity, it is unlikely that the city government will take participatory planning seriously.

MTREF 2020/2021 No evidence of this. May be due to Covid-19 restrictions, as was the case with other pulic participation processes
Is there evidence that a social compact exists between the municipality and communities that are undergoing upgrades? Partial Evidence

A social compact must be concluded as part of each individual informal settlement upgrading plan. A maximum of three per cent of the project cost may be used for community/ social facilitation.

Consultation with CoCT officials, 2020 The City of Cape Town has established its own agreements with communities undergoing upgrading. This agreement is recognized by the National Department of Human Settlements as serving the function of a social compact.
Does the city government have partnerships in place with organisations that can facilitate community participation? Partial Evidence

Partnerships with internal departments and councilors and/or external organisations might be required to facilitate participatory planning.
