The Department of Cooperative Governance (DCoG), acting as the implementing agent of the Integrated Urban Development Framework (IUDF), has embarked on the review of the existing Small Town Regeneration Programme (STR). Since the commission of the STR in 2013/2014 and the adoption of the IUDF in 2016, there have been varying degrees of success and important lessons to be learnt. The DCoG has therefore found it necessary to assess and review the success of the programme on the initial 18 identified towns and thereafter facilitate a coherent, revised, and implementable strategy that is aligned with the IUDF, as well as new national initiatives, such as the District Development Model (DDM), Cities Support Programme (CSP) and Intermediate Cities Municipalities Programme (ICM).
