Urban Planning and the Law in Kenya

This article discusses the nexus between urban planning and the law in theory, and the role that law plays in the urban planning process in Kenya. The theoretical discussion focuses on the use of law as a regulatory mechanism and concludes that no universal theory of the role of law in the urban planning process can be identified. The discussion on law and urban planning in Kenya, on the other hand, is an attempt to apply theory to the Kenyan situation. In Kenya today, there exists a private and a public legal regime for the regulation of land use in urban areas.
