ByCounty Government of Siaya
This County Spatial Plan is the first of its kind for Siaya under the new Constitution of Kenya, 2010, which created the 47 county governments Siaya being one of them. The Plan is a strategic vision that defines the general trend and direction of spatial development for the county, covering the entire thirty Wards in the six Sub counties; Gem, Ugenya, Ugunja, Alego, Bondo and Rarieda. It is a ten (10) years term Plan spanning the period from 2018 to 2028. The preparation of the County Spatial Plan is a requirement under the County Government Act, 2012 which provides for all County Governments in Kenya to prepare and implement county spatial plans. The County Spatial Plan has been prepared within the existing legal and policy frameworks and International treaties. The Sustainable Development Goals, County Government Act, the Urban Areas & Cities Act & the Physical Planning Act (Cap 286) guided the preparation of the Plan and give it requisite legitimacy. Policies that espouse the broad objectives of the National Government and the County Government within given sectors provide the principles that put them into effect. These are: Sustainable Development Goals, Kenya Vision 2030, National Spatial Plan, The National Land Policy and the National Urban Development Policy. The purpose of the Spatial Plan is to provide a county spatial structure that defines how its space will be utilized to ensure optimal and sustainable use of land. This will facilitate the achievement of the land policy principles of efficiency, equity, sustainability and productivity, and promote the attainment of social, economic and environmental goals and objectives. Further, the Plan provides strategies and policies to deal with challenges including urbanization, regional imbalances/inequalities, rural underdevelopment, environmental degradation, and underutilization of the massive resources available in the country.
