Background to the study Rwanda. in conjunction with KCMP. INTRODUCTION 1. 1. public institutions. The KCMP also stipulates the need to develop detailed master plans for each cell of the Kicukiro district as well as the key areas of Kigali City.1. Kicukiro District has initiated several planning projects for Rusheshe Cell . effectuated by its political stability and progressive policies. which celebrated the 100th year of its founding in 2007. My current study is aimed to find crucial contributions of physical planning on Rusheshe cell development as it has already a designed physical plan to follow. development management and plan implementation. The KCMP lays down the long range vision for Kigali City and provides the development framework for its growth in the next 50-100 years. water supplies. Determining physical planning and building regulations.1.The people from there were considered as pure rural people. definitions and regulations that reflect the planning concepts proposed in the Master Plan. is witnessing rapid economic growth and development. In view of this. which. Kigali City. urban renew and infrastructure servicing. It lays out the principals for the sustainable development and management of land used for human settlements.

It provides a basis for forward planning. Problem statement Rwandan people mindset allows them to live in dispersion along hillsides. .2. schools. Kicukiro district as one among districts of Kigali City has also a duty to implement KCMP on all land that it control. which has been recently approved in 2008. Based on this objective.
