Special Diplomatic Uses

SPECIAL DIPLOMATIC USES

Description

The move of the Capital to Dodoma will result in the need for sites to be reserved for chancelleries, diplomatic residences, embassies and related foreign mission uses. There are several approaches that can be followed with regard to the locations of these important facilities in the Capital and it is recommended that specific policies regarding their location and development should be established by the Capital Development Authority during the first five years of development, in consultation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

On the Future Land Use Plan three areas are designated for Special Diplomatic Uses. One site is adjacent to the Processional Way and close to the proposed High Court, where the presence of imposing buildings would be advantageous. A second site is close to the National Capital Centre, and a third is located on rising ground at the foothills of Mlimwa. It is assumed that some 100 foreign missions will eventually be located in the Capital City.

Policies

Generally, the policies with regard to Special Diplomatic Use areas are:

Chancelleries, diplomatic residences, embassies and related uses should be encouraged to locate in Special Diplomatic Use Areas, but need not necessarily be restricted thereto.

Notwithstanding the above, diplomatic areas should not be located close to the university or other educational institutions, and should preferably be in locations where the views and landscape would make the site particularly attractive to a foreign mission.

The various missions will require a variety of land areas; therefore, sites ranging from 0.1 to 5, 15 and 20 hectares should be provided.
