Combined index (6/6)

The Functional Area index combines the previous four indices. It considers all the above aspects and connects them to form a final index. Each of the indices mentioned above carries an assigned weight as part of the process. The weighting is derived from policy documents such as the IDP and SDF that guide the municipality’s spatial vision and priorities. The Functional Area index also considers significant environmental constraints. These include aspects related to slope, hydrology, protected areas, and the provincial environmental management framework
