The Mandela Bay Development Agency (MBDA) is a wholly owned entity of the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality (NMBM), which stimulates and supports area-based urban renewal development initiatives throughout Nelson Mandela Bay, with a strong focus on the Port Elizabeth Central Business District (CBD) as well as Uitenhage, North End and Helenvale.

The MBDA was formed at a critical time in the history of Nelson Mandela Bay when urban decay had started to reduce the rates base of the City, and the downward trend in the CBD of Port Elizabeth had lead to decline in interest in real estate investment.

The Strategic Spatial Implementation Framework (SSIF) of the MBDA developed in 2006 was a point of departure to reverse the economic development fortunes in the Mandate Area of the MBDA. The SSIF established the basis of a long term vision and strategy for the MBDA, which culminated in the acceptance of the SSIF by the NMBM Council as the blueprint for economic development and urban renewal in the Mandate Area. The establishment of the MBDA provided an agency dedicated to geographic based regeneration, first in the inner city and later throughout Nelson Mandela Bay.

In May 2010 the MBDA revised its 5-year strategy, which chartered the long term strategic course for the Agency. The 5-year Strategic Plan stimulates a long term vision and development priorities and strategies and is accompanied by a set of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), which sets out the short to medium term objectives and programmes to achieve the vision as set out in the SSIF.
