NLC Commissioner Hon. Esther Murugi has challenged County Governments who are yet to develop county spatial plans to expedite the process and have the plans adopted.
Speaking while representing the Chair during the induction of County Executive Committee Members in charge of Lands, Physical Planning and Urban Development in Mombasa, Hon. Murugi said that the Commission was ready to support county governments in developing the spatial plans.
The spatial plans, the commissioner said, was one of the ways the County Governments will be able to increase their own-source revenue.
She further called for proper planning of all urban, peri-urban and townships to enable the commission perform it’s mandate of land regularisation.
“Our mandate as a commission extends to renewal and extension of land leases which is key in land planning.” Said Hon Murugi.
“Let’s work together in the spirit of consultation and corporation for us to manage the land properly” she added.
