The State Council issued a circular which approved a master plan of Henan province’s Anyang city.
The plan is set to develop Anyang into a resource-conserving and environmentally-friendly city with an appropriately sized population, improved urban infrastructures, and favorable living environment before 2020.
According to the plan, the population in the central area of the city will be limited to under 1.5 million and the land size for city construction is stipulated within 130 square kilometers.
An urban infrastructure system which includes improved traffic, water supply, sewage, and garbage disposal infrastructures will be established.
Historical and cultural preservation is also an important part of the plan which stresses the coordination between protection of historical sites and new district development.
Anyang city enjoys a long and splendid history and culture. It sits at the northern part of Henan province and was the capital of seven dynasties in ancient China.
