MBDA Surveys

We want to hear from you!

The MBDA is all about contributing to positive change in The Bay and we can’t do that without engaging with the people who live in it.
Have your say on the issues that affect you and your community.

The iconic Tower of Light project

The process to establish the iconic Tower of Light project started with an intensive public participation process that included the submission of concepts and ideas. A call for the development of a Business Plan was then made, a team of consultants was appointed, and a report tabled to the Nelson Mandela Bay Council.

Council now invites the citizens of Nelson Mandela Bay and all interested parties to contribute views and opinions regarding the selection and recommendation of St George’s Park as a preferred site.

Please take a few minutes to have your say.

MBDA Stakeholder Satisfaction Survey

The MBDA was conceptualised by the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality and the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) and is a wholly owned entity of the NMBM. It was created in 2003 following an acknowledgement by the city’s leadership of the urgent need to reverse a trend towards urban decay in the inner city and to drive urban regeneration in the Nelson Mandela Bay CBD and other designated areas.

Since then, the mandate area has been expanded to include several key township projects, with the aim of transforming urban spaces to activate economic activity, create job opportunities and reshape urban development.

Considering the changing global operating environment, including technological, political and socio-economic shifts, entities like the MBDA must continue to evaluate the role they play in order to stay relevant and effective. This Stakeholder Engagement survey is a means to glean from you, the Stakeholder, what your thoughts and experiences are in relation to your engagements with the MBDA, as well as your aspirations.

Lower Baakens Zipline Project (Heritage Investigation)

The MBDA would like to invite you to participate in a short survey to gather your opinion and feedback on the stakeholder summary report regarding the Heritage Investigation of Fort Frederick and related structures on erf 3596, Central, Port Elizabeth. The application specifically relates to the proposal for the installation of a Zipline at the above-mentioned site. This survey will ensure that stakeholders are given the opportunity to provide their comments which will be collated and form part of the final submission.  

New Brighton Project

This survey would like to get your opinions about the New Brighton area – how you feel about the area, what opportunities there are for development. What needs to be improved or fixed, and which new projects could be introduced into the area. The responses you give will help to inform the MBDA’s current and future activities in the New Brighton area.
