Laikipia county’s Department of Lands, Infrastructure and Urban Development recently reached out to the Laikipia Tourism Association, as efforts intensify to prepare the County’s spatial plan.
They aim that by September this year, this spatial plan will be complete. The department is hoping to capture all types of tourism facilities within the landscape. Stakeholder participation is an important part of the Plan development process.
Consulting stakeholders creates awareness and eliminates conflicts after the development of the plan. This approach also gives stakeholders a sense of ownership for the spatial plan. It increases their support for the plan, which ensures its sustainability in the long run
Information Required From The Tourism Sector For The Spatial Plan Development
- Type of facility- lodges, hotel, tented camp or other.
- GPS Location

The county has committed to using this information only for the development of the spatial plan and not for any regulatory purposes.
