       Chapter IV: Land Use Policies, Capital City District

Government Offices

GOVERNMENT OFFICES

Description

The principal office buildings of the government ministries and agencies will be grouped in two locations. One 100 ha area is on the south side of the Processional Way, at the foot of the Imagi- Iseni Ridge. It overlooks the National Capital Centre and the old town towards the north. The second government office area is in the old town of Dodoma, north of the railway and adjacent to the existing business district.

Since it is not possible to predict the long-term need for government office space accurately, an area of 55 ha is designated as "Unforeseen Government or Institutional Use" on the Future Land Use Plan. This should be strictly reserved for this purpose, possibly for many years to come.

Policies

Within the area designated on the Future Land Use Plan for Government Offices, the different ministries should be grouped together, so that essential functional relationships will be facilitated.

The ministry offices should be located close to bus stops. The design and siting of the buildings should be closely related to the nature of the Processional Way, which interconnects all major government functions. The general presence and image of the National Capital will be substantially influenced by the appearance and importance of these buildings, even though they should not exceed three or four storeys in height.

Reasonable consistency should be achieved in the use of colours and materials of the government buildings to create a harmonious design integration. The landscape of all government office areas is of importance and special attention should be given to the introduction of water features.

In addition to the specific areas designated for Government Offices, government buildings should also be located in the B centres.
