dc.description.abstractThe Constitution of Kenya, 2010 assigns to the County Governments the function of County planning and development where under property addressing and street naming fall. The Nairobi City County Property Addressing and Street Naming Policy provides for guidelines to be applied when addressing buildings and naming streets. The objective of the policy is to have a transparent and determinable procedure for property addressing and street naming in Nairobi City County. This will be achieved by employing international best practices and by adopting ISO 19160 and the National Addressing Standards. The policy provides a historical perspective of property addressing and street naming in a bid to anchor the contemporary and forward-looking nature of the procedures contained herein. It provides the socio-economic contributors considered in developing the procedures for property addressing and street naming as a foundational basis of the contents of the policy. The policy, legal and institutional framework which are relevant to this policy is provided to demonstrate compliance with statutory provisions. The policy also spells out the procedures on name selection and the guidelines for property addressing and street naming and renaming. Guidelines on determining the start and end of a street have also been developed under this policy. Procedures for street codification and financial considerations in the implementation of this policy are also provided. Further, the policy establishes a County Addressing Unit within Nairobi City County department responsible for Urban Planning and Development as the implementation framework of this policy and particularly that shall manage data and implement the policy.en
