This SFD was developed for Ugie located within the Elundini LM (Figure 3). Other towns in Elundini LM include Maclear and Mount Fletcher (Joe Gqabi District Municipality, 2018). Ugie developed from a mission station at Gatberg and was established and named in 1863 by William Murray after the Ugie River in Scotland. The town was founded in 1885 (Eastern Cape, 2021). The town serves as an activity centre for the farmers and as a shopping centre to the nearby rural communities. In 2011, the town had a total area of 19.11 km2 with a total population of 13,467 (i.e. 705 people per square kilometre – km2) and a total number of households of 4,486 (i.e. 3 persons per household) (Stats SA, 2011). More recent data provided by the DM indicates that Ugie has a population of 15,234 and a total number of households of 5,078 (i.e. 797 people per km2 and 3 persons per household) (Personal communication, 2018). Ugie town and its surroundings has a mixture of both urban and rural areas with the associated breakdown of households being 2,134 urban and 2,944 rural households.

Ugie normally receives about 693mm of rain per year. Most rainfall occurs during the summer season. Temperatures for Ugie range from 16°C in June (winter) to 26°C in January (summer) (Coastal & Environmental Services, 2012). Temperatures are coldest in July (average around 1°C during the night) (Coastal & Environmental Services, 2012). The topography is hilly and covered by grassland in places (Coastal & Environmental Services, 2012). Mudstone and sandstone of the Beaufort Group of the Karoo Sequence predominate in the Ugie area. There is also sedimentary rocks of the Molteno, Elliot and Clarens Formations present (Coastal & Environmental Services, 2012). As the town is on a mountainous terrain, the ground water table varies from the areas along the river and those away from the river (JGDM, 2018).
