The largest part of the Bronberg area might soon fall under the greater Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality.

The proposed re-determination of municipal boundaries will exclude the following areas from Kungwini / Metsweding and include them into the Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality: Zwartkoppies, Tweefontein, Bashewa, Tiegerpoort, Rietfontein, Grootfontein, Zwavelpoort, Mooiplaats, a portion of Donkerhoek, Witkoppies, Sterkfontein, a portion of Rensburg and a portion of Doornkloof. Since the last local government elections, held on 1 March 2006, the Municipal Demarcation Board has informed stakeholders that the re-determination of municipal boundaries and the future of district management areas need to be finalised during 2007 / beginning of 2008.

In preparation for the next national and provincial elections in 2009 and the local elections in 2011, the Municipal Demarcation Board envisages to finalise outstanding changes to municipal boundaries early this year.

Last year the board resolved to allow until 31 December 2007 for Gauteng Province to submit proposals. If no proposals were received by then, the board determined to take the initiative in establishing the new boundaries. Vuyo Mlokoti, chairperson of the Municipal Demarcation Board noted that no requests have been received from the MEC to deal with the boundaries of municipalities in Gauteng.

At its last meeting on 6 December 2007, the board determined 15 February as closing date for the submission of views and representation.
