The mission of the Western Cape Department of Local Government is to capacitate municipalities to deliver quality services to communities; promote participative, integrated and sustainable communities; ensure that municipal plans reflect national, provincial and local priorities and resources through sound intergovernmental relations; be the first port of call to municipalities for advice and support; and facilitate delivery through sound administration and the engagement of all spheres of government and social partners.

The Department's objectives and mandates are to establish municipalities consistent with national legislation; support and strengthen the capacity of municipalities; regulate the performance of municipalities in terms of their functions listed in the Constitution; intervene where there is nonfulfilment of legislative, executive or financial obligations; and promote a developmental local government.
