7.5.1 Concept of Structure Plan

Level of expertise required for this Chapter: Planner; specifically for LUPMIS @ TCPD

The Structure Plan is the main document of the entire planning process. It is a legal document, binding for all further planning and investment procedures at a more detailed level. Local Plans for example have to follow the Structure Plan, so do permits.

Most Structure Plans will be at the scale of 1:25,000

The Structure Plan map should include identification of main land uses:

  • Present

  • Proposed

  • ‘White land’

  • Main trunk infrastructure (roads, water, drainage, sewage, electricity)

The accompanying report should include:

  • Phases of development over the plan period

  • Public investment proposal

  • Preliminary budget.

Refer to the Structure Plan Guidelines of the Project.

The following two Chapters will illustrate the workplan (step-by-step guide,  Chapter 7.5.2), primarily addressed to planners, and the GIS procedures in Map Maker to execute these steps ( Chapter 7.5.3), primarily addressed to any GIS user.

See also Chapter 7.1.2 for the role of the Structure Plan within the entire planning concept, and its further description.

Stakeholders have to be involved into the planning process. From the beginning they have be aware of the planning process.
