The State Council approved the ten-year urban plan for Taizhou city, East China's Jiangsu province, according to the circular released by the General Office of the State Council on Feb 6.
The circular called for the reasonable control of the city’s size. It said, by 2020, the number of permanent residents in the central urban area should be below 1.2 million, while urban development land should not exceed 125 square kilometers, in order to form a rational and compact urban layout.
The State Council urged Taizhou city to carry out unified urban and rural planning and management in the identified 639 square kilometers of urban planning area.
The local government was also required to put priority on the development of key towns with solid foundation and great potential. The circular said that it is also important to strengthen ties with cities in other parts of Jiangsu and join the integration of the Yangtze Delta area.
