SCRA achievements over the last 18 month

SCRA stopped the construction of a block of flats. They were completely against zoning plan rules and other regulations. We had to join a court case against the developer and obtained a stop order. Case is still ongoing and we hope to achieve the demolition of the illegal construction. SCRA has also confirmed that in the absence of a new zoning plan, the current plan is still in effect despite it’s expiry date.

– SCRA made the authorities including Museums of Kenya aware of mosque construction which would destroy an archaeological valuable area

– SCRA had several meetings with security agencies which resulted in the transfer of the OCS and the OCPD in Ukunda after which the frequent armed gate robberies stopped

– SCRA now has the ear of several Kwale and National authorities, especially NEMA who usually promptly react to issues raised by SCRA

– SCRA managed to organise a visit by the National Environmental Complaints Committee (NECC) who visited several sites in Diani and Tiwi and made strong recommendations on the encroachment on beaches and beach access roads as well as illegal stone mining in Tiwi. In conjunction with the Kenya Alliance of Resident’s Association (KARA) we are following this up directly with the NECC and Kwale County Government

– SCRA was instrumental in setting up speed limit signs along the Diani Beach Road

– SCRA has revamped their website:

– SCRA added Wambui Ngunya (lawyer) and George Jaramba (human rights) to our committee

– SCRA procured 2 decibel meters, one of which we donated to the Kwale County Government noise pollution agency. The calibration of these meters showed some weaknesses, but we can still use them to evaluate noise levels
