This paper describes the evolution of

Chinese comprehensive planning and proposes a

number of recommendations related to the

country's economic development and political

reform, based on analysis of the advantages and

disadvantages of the current approaches to

comprehensive planning.

Chinese urban planning has a long

history. Its origin can be traced back to 5,000

years ago. The urban planning approaches advanced

along with the development of Chinese cities.

During the long history, Chinese people formulated

a unique way of urban planning.

The different urban planning approaches

have specifically identifiable features in

different historic periods. Particularly, with

the establishment of the socialist regime in

China in 1949, complete and systematic urban

planning approaches were created.

Today, when the country is proceeding

with economic and political reforms, the reform

of comprehensive planning approaches has also been

undertaken in a significant way. The author poses

a number of viewpoints for the potential transformation

of the approaches in China, with particular

emphasis on the change of planning mechanism

(including planning process and implementation)

and citizen participation.
