A substantial literature has reported the conflicts between various sectoral plans in urban China (Niu, 2004; Wang, 2009; Yu and Yi, 2009), especially the contradictions between land use plan and urban plan since the late 1990s.Some suggested that the conflicted spatial visions weakened the capacity of development control (Niu, 2004; Wang, 2009).Thus, various sectoral plans at the municipal or county level were subjected to restructure to conduct plan coordination (Yu and Yi, 2009; Zhang, 2000).It was also claimed that the reform of planning institution was urgently neededunder the changed political economy in urban China (Yang, 2003).
Paralleled with the conflicts between sectoral plans, various spatial problems have been emerging in urban China since the early 2000s,such as rampant urban sprawl,widening urban and rural disparity,as well as environment degradation ofwater and air quality (Lu et al., 2007).Among them, urban sprawl was regarded as agreat challenge of sustainable development due to China's large population,limitedfarmland and the consequent worries about food security (Fu et al., 2001).Besides,urban sprawl would also lead to the "big city diseases" of traffic jam, air pollution, andurban heat island effect (Van der Valk,2002; 2hang,2000).Although developmentcontrol has appeared in the central government's policy agenda for a long time, theurban sprawl is still very serious in many large cities in China (Lu et al., 2007; Yaoet al., 2009)
