Integrated Regional Development Incorporating a Compact City, Transit Oriented Development and Green Wedges

The Foshan Planning Bureau’s intention was to control urban sprawl after the completion of the First Ring Route construction which aimed to alleviate traffic congestion within the City’s core centre. The First Ring Route covers a total length of 99.2km, passing through 4 districts and 15 towns within Foshan City.

The Study Area covered all land areas within 1km of the Ring Route. In undertaking the Project, detailed backgroundresearchand site analysis werecarried out on all suburbs and districts in Foshan City, as well as their roles and position within Guangdong Province and the Pearl River Delta. The analysis revealed the strengths and weaknesses in the current land use distribution/function and after consideration of the traffic impact of the proposed Ring Route, a revised land use plan was prepared with full planning justifications to direct the future growth and development of Foshan City in a sustainable manner.

In addition, 3 clusters were chosen within the Study Area for detailed design. These areas include a Town Centre, an Ecological Park and a High-Tech Park. The design concepts adopted for this Project include the Compact City Concept as well as the Transit Oriented Development Concept.
