Lekki Master Plan

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The objective of this report is to provide the conceptual designs for the roads and utilities and primary infrastructure for the Lekki Peninsula based on the updated landuse Master Plan which was presented and discussed with the Ministry of Urban Planning and Physical Development, local authorities and stakeholders. The Lekki Sub-Region comprises a naturally formed peninsula on the Atlantic Ocean East of Lagos City and on Lagos Lagoon. The peninsula is approximately 70 to 80 km long, stretching
from Victoria Island in the west to Refuge Island in the east, with an average width of 10 km. The Lekki Sub-Region includes several Estates, gated residential developments, agricultural farmlands, areas allocated for a Free Trade Zone (FTZ), an airport, and a sea port. The project area, under consideration in this study, is estimated to be about 60,000 hectares excluding the areas allocated for the Lekki Free Trade Zone, Sea Port and International airport. The proposed landuse master plan for the Lekki Sub-region envisages the Lekki Peninsula as a “Blue-Green” Environment City. The unique characteristics of the Atlantic Coast, Lagos Lagoon and the inland natural areas will be protected and enhanced to give Lekki New City the special natural ambience character. Based on the proposed landuse plan, Lekki new city will be divided into 5 linear development zones (excluding the Lekki Free Trade Zone):
