Long and frustrating delays in getting building
approvals will be a thing of the past as the Ministry
of Planning and the Ministry of Local Government
have embarked on a joint effort to decentralise plan-
ning to municipal authorities.
Through this collaboration citizens will soon be

promptness and transparency in the treatment of
Town and Country Planning Division will go
through a transformation as part of the devolution
of planning power to the Municipal Corporations.
The devolution process, which is detailed in the
National Spatial Development Strategy document,
will employ planners to review and approve devel-
This will assist in speeding up procedures that
would alleviate problems previously encountered by
citizens applying for land use and building approvals.
