CONSULTANCY TO REVIEW AND UPDATE THE NATIONAL PHYSICAL PLANNING STANDARDS AND GUIDELINES
The Ministry of Lands Housing and Urban Development, in 2011, consolidated the existing standards relating to social, economic and physical infrastructure provision from various sectors and prepared the National Physical Planning Standards and Guidelines whose main purpose was to guide the preparation and implementation of the physical development plans.
It was envisaged that the standards and guidelines would ensure orderly, coordinated and effi cient development. On behalf of the National Physical Planning Board, a body mandated to advise government on physical planning standards, guidelines and monitoring and evaluation of the implementation of physical development plans, the department of Land Use Regulation and Compliance has been undertaking this task as one of its core functions.
However enforcement of some of the provisions of the existing physical planning standards and guidelines, has been a challenge to local governments and this has slowed down the implementation of quite a number of valid approved physical development plans. CLICK HERE FOR MORE ON THIS NOTICE
