A Study of Rural Planning Management Based on Rural Vitalization: Take Chengdu City as an example

  • Yu Liu


The 19th CPC National Congress put forward the national strategy of rural vitalization. According to domestic and foreign literature, the construction of rural planning in the context of rural vitalization should combine the natural resources and socioeconomic conditions of the local region. It is also necessary to explore the planning model suitable for local rural development and thus achieve the intergrowth and win-win results of ecology and economy. Combining with the regional case of Chengdu City, the paper analyzed the methods adopted by Chengdu City for managing rural planning. It is government-dominated, linked by rural planners and oriented on guiding villagers’ self-governance. Next, the paper pointed out the problems faced by rural development, including the homogeneity of rural industrial development, the destruction of the ecological environment and the restriction of transferring the right to use rural homesteads. The paper then put forward advice for enhancing Chengdu’s management strategies for rural planning, including promoting rural transformation & upgrading, encouraging “rural activation”, protecting the ecological environment of rural areas, and improving the transfer of right to use rural homesteads. Eventually, the paper reviewed the successful practical experience of other Chinese cities. It concluded key factors affecting China’s rural planning management in rural vitalization and the ideal paths for development.
