Nakuru County Proposed Bill to Regulate land use and Controlled Development

As Nakuru County gears up for its new city status, the county government has embarked on regularising land use and controlled development.

The Nakuru County Land Management Bill, 2021, was this week read for the first time at the county assembly by Lands and Physical Planning committee chairperson Stephen Ngethe.

"The Bill aims at providing a framework for land administration and management, preparation of physical development plans and control, survey and mapping. monitoring and oversight in the county" said Ngethe.

Notable among its proposals is the repossession of undeveloped land within urban areas, and re-allocation of the same to spur growth of towns and trading centres.

"If a plot remains undeveloped for a period of 18 months or more, the county government in conjunction with the National Land Commision will initiate the process of repossession and reallocation," the Bill reads in part.

Nakuru, Naivasha and Gilgil towns are among key urban areas with undeveloped plots, some still embroiled in ownership disputes.
