Housing and Building Construction Industry Standards
The Building Act 1971 and the Physical Planning Act 1989 regulate and control all the building and construction developments and zoning in the country, respectively. The Government will enforce compliance with the standards and adopt new building codes and zoning designs. In order to achieve this, the following will be implemented:
- Standardize and modernize designs for public and institutional housing;
- Effective regulation of the real estate industry;
- Adopt better physical planning designs for cities, urban, rural towns and District growth centers; and
- Registration of all importers of building and construction materials.
