Pursuant to the provisions of Section 29 of the Physical and Land Use Planning Act, 2019, the County Governments of Machakos, Makueni and Kajiado have in consultation with the National Government agreed to formulate an Inter-county Physical and Land Use Development Plan covering the area falling within the ten kilometer radius around the Konza Technopolis city.
The purpose of the Inter-county Physical and Land Use Development Plan will be to:
- Provide a mutually agreed spatial development framework for symbiotic and sustainable
co-existence between the Konza Technopolis City and the adjacent areas falling within the
jurisdiction of the three counties and
- Provide the requisite basic guidelines and standards for regulation of land use practices and
general development control activities for the respective planning authorities, developers,
property owners, government agencies and non state stakeholders.
The formulation of the Inter-county Physical and Land Use Development Plan will be overseen by the
Inter-County Joint Physical and Land Use Planning Committee consisting of the respective County
Executive Committee Members responsible for physical and land use planning matters, two other
relevant County Executive Committee Members, copted representatives from the relevant National
Government Ministries, Departments and Agencies (including the Konza Technopolis Development
Authority) and the Director-General of Physical and Land Use Planning who shall be the ex-officio
member ad coordinator of the planning activities.
The formulation of the Inter-county Physical and Land Use Development Plan will largely entail the
review of the Approved Development Plan No. 03 (Konza Techno City Buffer Zoning Plan Ref. No.
2564/2013/01) and will adopt a highly participatory and consultative process.
Now therefore, in view of the foregoing and in order to safeguard the integrity of the physical and land use planning practices in the subject areas, it has been decided and hereby declared that all developments be suspended for a period of ninety days with effect from the date of this Notice. For avoidance of doubt and to ensure clarity, this suspension will apply to:
- All proposals for subdivision and amalgamation of land, change of user as well as extension of
user that are yet to be registered under the Land Registration Act, 2012.
- All building plans and proposal civil works that are yet to be commenced.
Further, all development proposals that have been processed and approved as required under the
provisions of section 58 of the Physical and Land Use Planning Act, 2019 stand suspended until
completion of the formulation of the Inter-county Physical and Land Use Development Plan upon
which such approvals will be reviewed as appropriate.
All are invited to note that this Notice applies to the specified zone that falls within the Machakos
County as indicated in the attached diagram.
