Planning in Kenya is undertaken by both the national and the county governments. The national government is responsible for formulation of the laws while the implementation of the laws is undertaken by the counties.
Each county has a legislative framework which is based on the national laws that impose planning and zoning controls. The county planning laws apply to all sub-counties within a county.
Part XI of the County Governments Act requires county planning frameworks to integrate economic, physical, social, environmental, and spatial planning.
