       Chapter IV: Land Use Policies, Capital City District

Other Uses

OTHER USES

Other uses which have not been specifically covered in the preceding sections include the following:

Hotels

Description

Two specific hotel sites have been designated, one on the south slopes of Mlimwa, and one at the proposed junction of the Great North Road and the Processional Way. Additional sites for hotels can be provided in the National Capital Centre and in the Sub Centres.

Policy

The general policy with regard to hotels is that they should be provided in accordance with estimated demand, and that their location and design should be carefully reviewed to ensure that they are complementary to the main design parameters of the Capital.

Quarries and Pits

Description

In constructing the Capital City and in the development of the region, substantial amounts of sand, gravel, and clay, will be required. As much as possible, this material should be obtained locally to provide employment and to reduce transportation costs.

The quarries, pits and other sources of material can create serious visual scars in the landscape; they can result in significant dust and noise problems.

Policies

When the establishment of quarries, pits or other means of extracting materials such as stone, gravel, sand, or clay are being considered, the Authority should adhere to the following policies:

They should be so located that their adverse visual impact on the Capital City, rural villages, roads and other areas frequently used by the general public is kept to a minimum.

Their location should be such that the pollution of streams and other water bodies is where possible prevented.

Dust and noise resulting from the extraction operations should not be permitted to affect the city or villages.

The extraction operations should be designed so that when the operations cease, the areas can be rehabilitated by means of grading and planting, to avoid long-term visual pollution and dangerous conditions.

Where feasible, the pits and quarries should be screened from adjacent roads by means of trees and shrubs.
