World Bank Group helps Mombasa County automate construction permitting processes
With the support of the Kenya Investment Climate Program 2, a three-year program financed by UK Aid and the Dutch government, Mombasa County launched an electronic construction permits system in early March 2015. The program team collaborated with the county to design, develop, test, and deploy the online system.The automated construction permit system will reduce the time needed to review applications and ease the burden on county officers. Previously, the lengthy and complex process often created a backlog. Now, reviewers can simultaneously assess and comment on applications, reducing the time to issue a permit from between at most 20 days to a maximum of three days.
