These guidelines provide a basis for engagement between the County Governments as planning authorities responsible for preparing, approving and implementing County Spatial Plans and the National Land Commission as a monitoring and oversight agency over land use planning. The County Government Act 2012 at section 110(1)(a) stipulates that the County Spatial Plans shall give effect to the principles and objects of county planning and development contained in section 102 and 103 of the same Act. Further, section 110 (2)(c)(iv) of the Act requires that the County Spatial Plans should set out basic guidelines for a land use management system in the County taking into account any guidelines, regulations or laws as provided for under Article 67(2) (h) of the Constitution. The guidelines seek to guide and standardize the practice of preparing, and implementing County Spatial Plans in the country.
