Planning Background

The Blueprint of Overall Development of Lekki Peninsula (about 600 square kilometers) In July 2008, the conceptual blueprint of developing the Lekki Penninsula into a ‘Blue-Green Environment City’ was proposed by the State Government of Lagos, which covers a total area of 600 square kms. stretching from Victoria Island in the west to Refuge Island in the east. The conceptual blueprint has set the basic criterions for land uses and development of important public facilities and infrastructures in both the north and south peninsulas. And it also provides the essential guidelines for the regional planning of the entire Lekki peninsula as well as the important basis for the preparation of Lekki FTZ plans with a view to integrating Lekki FTZ with development of the Mega city of Lagos.
