Shang­hai Mu­nic­i­pal Peo­ple’s Gov­ern­ment ap­proved the Chong­ming District Plan & Land Use Plan (2017-2035) (here­inafter re­ferred to as Chong­ming District Plan) re­cently, the first ap­proved district-level plan and land-use plan fol­low­ing the new Shang­hai Master Plan re­ceiv­ing the State Coun­cil’s of­fi­cial ap­proval.

Chong­ming District Plan is the ba­sis and le­gal doc­u­ment for ur­ban and rural plan­ning, con­struc­tion and man­age­ment in the district. It is an im­por­tant guide­line for the district’s fu­ture ur­ban and rural devel­op­ment and a grand blue­print for achiev­ing the goal of build­ing it into a “World­Class Eco-Is­land.”

Fo­cus­ing on the re­quire­ments to build a world-class eco-is­land, Chong­ming has ac­tively prac­ticed the devel­op­ment con­cept of “in­no­va­tion, co­or­di­na­tion, con­ser­va­tion, open­ness and shar­ing,” pri­or­i­tized sus­tain­able and green devel­op­ment and vig­or­ously car­ried out the devel­op­ment strat­egy of “+ ecol­ogy” and “ecol­ogy +” so as to pro­mote the devel­op­ment of ecol­ogy, pro­duc­tion and liv­ing in co­or­di­na­tion.

Bot­tom-line con­trol I. To strictly im­ple­ment the re­quire­ments for bot­tom-line con­trol.

Chong­ming will im­ple­ment the over­all re­quire­ments of “neg­a­tive growth” for plan­ning devel­op­ment land and strictly hold the bot­tom lines of pop­u­la­tion, land re­sources, en­vi­ron­ment and ur­ban safety to achieve sus­tain­able devel­op­ment.

Chong­ming will strictly con­trol its size of the res­i­dent pop­u­la­tion and op­ti­mize the pop­u­la­tion dis­tri­bu­tion. By 2035, the planned res­i­dent pop­u­la­tion in the district will not ex­ceed 700,000, while that in the towns will be around 560,000. Chong­ming will also ad­here to the most strin­gent land-sav­ing pol­icy and the most vig­or­ous crop­land con­ser­va­tion pol­icy. By 2035, the land for plan­ning will not ex­ceed 265 square kilo­me­ters, and the crop­land re­serve will be no less than 635,000 mus (42,333.33 hectares).

II. To build a co­or­di­nated spa­tial sys­tem for ur­ban and rural ar­eas.

Chong­ming will set its foothold on the whole and pro­mote devel­op­ment of ecol­ogy, towns and vil­lages in co­or­di­na­tion by en­sur­ing bal­anced ur­ban and rural con­struc­tion and co­or­di­nated nat­u­ral ecol­ogy, and by switch­ing from city-wide al­lo­ca­tion and con­cen­tra­tion to com­par­a­tively ef­fec­tive con­cen­tra­tion.

Chong­ming will strengthen the hard con­straints of eco-space on the spa­tial struc­ture and lay­out, form a gen­eral spa­tial struc­ture of “three districts, two belts and two zones,” and build an ur­ban and rural sys­tem char­ac­ter­ized by “core town-cen­tral town-gen­eral town-small mar­ket town-village.”

The five ma­jor town clus­ters will be taken to co­or­di­nate the key re­sources on the three is­lands of Chong­ming, tap the devel­op­ment po­ten­tial of spa­ces, and con­duct cat­e­go­rized guide for rural ar­eas based on removal, pro­tec­tion and re­tain­ing.

Com­pre­hen­sive trans­porta­tion sys­tem III. To im­ple­ment ma­jor spe­cial co­or­di­nat­ing projects.

Chong­ming will build a com­pre­hen­sive trans­porta­tion sys­tem that is “smooth out­side and op­ti­mized in­side, ef­fi­cient and compact, green and eco­log­i­cal”; de­velop an eco-in­dus­trial sys­tem that is based on mod­ern agri­cul­ture, led by tourism service, and takes in­no­va­tion econ­omy as its main­stay, and green in­tel­li­gence as its sup­port.

The district will also build a sound and rea­son­able tim­ing-se­quence con­trol­ling mech­a­nism for housing, and in­crease the pro­por­tion of sup­port­ive housing in the to­tal housing sup­ply.

The district will safe­guard the con­struc­tion of fa­cil­i­ties and spa­ces of pub­lic in­ter­est which are now in short sup­ply, make up for the weak­ness in the cur­rent pub­lic service, op­ti­mize and en­hance spa­tial qual­ity and life qual­ity. Chong­ming will also strengthen his­toric land­scape pro­tec­tion and over­all ur­ban fa­cil­i­ties to fully re­flect its over­all features with Chi­nese el­e­ments, Jiang­nan charm and is­land features.

The district will fol­low the con­ser­va­tion ob­jec­tives and plan­ning prin­ci­ples of low car­bon devel­op­ment, green cycle, en­vi­ron­ment restoration, eco­log­i­cal gover­nance, sys­tem con­trol and so­cial co-gover­nance while op­ti­miz­ing the lay­out of its ma­jor pub­lic util­ity fa­cil­i­ties.
