dc.description.abstract The paper demonstrated that land use development in the unplanned suburbs in Kisumu Municipality is dictated by several factors. It covered three unplanned suburbs namely Nyamasaria, Otonglo and Mamboleo based on Mixed Method. The study population was 16250 households from which a sample of 400 household heads was selected. The study aimed at finding out factors determining the development of three major land uses including residential, commercial and industrial. The findings were that land use development in the unplanned suburbs are influenced by; migration, adopted land use planning approach, zoning regulations and bylaws, land title system, actors in land use, legal and administrative constraints. It recommended that Municipal Council of Kisumu should develop some short term measures to guide land use development in the unplanned suburbs including the development and application of proactive planning policies with specific strategies guiding land use development in the unplanned suburbs. en_US
