Beijing, 9 Sep (ZXS) -- China's Ministry of Natural Resources announced on 14 September that it decided to launch a four-year pilot project of low-efficiency land redevelopment in 14 cities in 15 provinces (cities) including Beijing to improve land use efficiency.

The Ministry of Natural Resources recently issued the Notice on Carrying out the Pilot Work of Redevelopment of Inefficient Land, making the above decision.

The main person in charge of the Department of Natural Resources Development and Utilization of the Ministry of Natural Resources said that for a long time, in some urban and rural areas, including urban villages and old factory areas, there are widespread problems such as scattered layout, extensive utilization and unreasonable use of existing construction land. Some urban villages have poor living environment, insufficient infrastructure and public service facilities, and some industrial land plot ratios are low, and the level of input and output is not high.

The person in charge stressed that in cities with net population inflow, limited new space, and prominent contradictions in industrial development land, carrying out pilot projects of low-efficiency land redevelopment is conducive to making up for the shortcomings of infrastructure and public service facilities, improving the urban and rural living environment, increasing the effective supply of construction land, and ensuring the landing and transformation and upgrading of industrial projects. The policy includes 15 cities in 43 provinces (cities), including Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei, Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Anhui, Fujian and Jiangxi, into the pilot scope.

The person in charge said that all localities should actively explore planning and land policies that are compatible with the redevelopment of low-efficiency land, reasonably determine the spatial unit of low-efficiency land redevelopment according to the overall land space plan, prepare detailed planning at the implementation level within the spatial unit, and explore policies such as mixed land development, space composite utilization, floor area ratio incentives, and cross-space unit coordination.

The person in charge stressed that pilot cities should improve land supply methods and land price policy tools, explore the mixed supply of land plots for different purposes, "fat and thin matching" linkage transformation, comprehensively evaluate the transfer or transfer with design plan, and improve the land price calculation and supplementary payment standards. Improve the revenue sharing mechanism, explore the transformation of sporadic and inefficient land such as corner land, sandwich land, and flower arrangement land through the integration and replacement of state-owned and state-owned, collective-to-collective, and state-owned and collective, improve the monetization compensation standards of original land rights holders, expand the channels of compensation in kind, and explore the use of collective construction land to build affordable rental housing.
