Under the new Constitution of Kenya, 2010, the County Government is now vested with the authority to ensure that land owned by county residents is used for the purposes it has been intended for by the Director of Physical Planning established under the Physical Planning Act. This means that if you intend to buy agricultural land and convert it into commercial use, you will be forced to seek approval for this kind of change of user of the land.
