Open Data Durban has begun work on it's Open Data Portal that seeks to convert data into user-friendly formats (such as out of PDF) and act as a support to the municipality when Durban.Gov is down or data is removed, as well as adding Durban-related data that is out of scope of the muncipality, such as education (a provincial mandate) and election results.
The purpose of the portal is simply a place to put data that is being used by the open data community and so is not currently aiming be exhaustive, but rather an additional resource to users.
These are included on the Municipality's Website
