Consultation of Urban Design for Guangyang Island Smart Innovation Eco-city, Chongqing
Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at the core has vigorously promoted ecological civilization construction. The Fifth Plenum of the 19th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China proposed to adhere to the new development concept, focus on promoting high-quality development, and emphasize “promoting green development and promoting harmonious coexistence between man and nature”. The construction of ecological civilization can be considered as a millennium plan related to the sustainable development of the Chinese nation. We must always be guided by the conviction that that lucid waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets. We must always respect, accommodate to and protect nature. And we also must give priority to conservation, protection and natural restoration to guarantee natural ecological security. Sustainable development strategies should be implemented deeply, the coordination mechanism in ecological civilization should be improved for an ecological civilization system, for a comprehensive green transformation of economic and social development and for the modernization in which man and nature live in harmony. We must accelerate the promotion of green and low-carbon development, continue to improve environment, enhance the quality and stability of the ecosystem, and comprehensively improve efficiency of resource utilization. We must resolutely follow the path of development featuring booming industries, prosperous life, and good environment.
At the same time, General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out at symposiums on the development of the Yangtze River Economic Belt that the Yangtze River is the mother river of the Chinese nation, and that the restoration of the ecological environment of Yangtze River must be placed in an overwhelming position. We must show great efforts in the protection instead of the development. The prerequisite for promotion of Yangtze River Economic Belt development requires us to prioritize ecology and comprehensively do a good job in the restoration of the ecological environment of the Yangtze River. And we should also explore new ways for taking ecology as our priority and for green development at the same time, and promote the construction of a modern economic system in the Yangtze River Economic Belt. We must unswerving implement the new development concept and promote high-quality development of the Yangtze River economy belt for priority on ecology for green development. We can create a new model for regional coordinated development, build a new highland opening to the outside world at high-level, shape new advantages in innovation-driven development, draw a new picture of the harmony among landscapes, city and people. In this way, we can build the Yangtze River Economic Belt into the main battlefield of ecological priority for green development, the main artery for the domestic and international market, the dual circulation and the main force of high-quality economic development.
In order to thoroughly implement Xi Jinping's thoughts on ecological civilization and the instructions of symposiums on the development of the Yangtze River Economic Belt and in order to fully implement the “two points” , “two places” and “two high goals”, and “three roles” also proposed by General Secretary Xi Jinping for Chongqing, in accordance with requirements of the Municipal Party Committee and Government of Chongnqing, the city’s territorial development plan has clearly defined the spatial structure featuring “two rivers, four mountains and three valleys；one core, one axis and five cities”. Chongqing will enjoy the spatial pattern including the Western Science City, the Eastern Eco-city, the Northern Smart City, the Southern Humanity and Cultural City, and the Core Historical Mother City.
The Eastern Eco-City (1889 square kilometers) is based on the Guangyang Island. It brings the green development pattern of Guangyang Island to the whole area. It is a practice to carry out the Xi Jinping’s thoughts on ecological civilization for promoting the construction of Chengdu-Chongqing economic circle. The Eco-city will be a green development area where ridges, valleys, waters, fields, cities, towns and villages coexist. It is a future city with green environment, humanistic temperament, scientific atmosphere, and smart driving force. It will enjoy rapid economic development with lush mountains and lucid rivers, sound social civility and progressive atmosphere. We are exploring new ways of green development to satisfy people's yearning for a better life, which is the direction of unswerving efforts showed by the Eastern Eco-City.
The Guangyang Island area (168 square kilometers) is the launching area of the Eastern Eco-City, a practice site for green and high-quality development, and an integrated leading area for ecological demonstration. We should take Guangyang Island as the starting point, abandon traditional concepts of development and construction, and practice the principles of the Yangtze River Economic Belt including “putting green first for ecological protection” and “showing concerted efforts instead of developing”. We have launched the overall planning and controlling regulations of Guangyang Island. On March 12 of 2020, Secretary Chen Min'er and Mayor Tang Liangzhi visited Guangyang Island and asked to press the “fast forward button” to strengthen the “coordination and linkage within and outside of it”. They also instructed that we should promote the demonstration construction of Guangyang Island of the green development of the Yangtze River Economic Belt with high standards. We should strive to build it into a “Scenic Eye of Yangtze River and an Ecological Island of Chongqing”.
The Guangyang Island Smart Innovation Eco-city (105 square kilometers, the scope of this urban planning and Design) is a key component of the Guangyang Island area (on the south bank of the Yangtze River). It is also an important endpoint of urban backbone from east to west in the overall urban structure including the Western Science city, the Eastern Eco-City, the Northern Smart City, the Southern Humanity and Cultural City, and the Core Historical Mother City.
The Guangyang Island Smart Innovation Eco-city will build a bay area featuring ecological civilization of Chongqing, sparing no efforts for the building of the “scenery starting from Nanan District” and serving as a core practice site to demonstrate Nanan District. It will compatible with Guangyang Island, and follow the Municipal Government’s vision in pursuing its growth and making due contributions to overall development. It will demonstrate the beauty of green and build a city of the future for an industrial highland with quality life.
The Guangyang Island Smart Innovation Eco-city is located at the connecting node of the Eastern Eco-City and the Northern Smart City. It can realize the joint development of southern and northern regions of the river, which is another important task of the Smart Eco-City. This can reflect both ecology and smart applications. It is required to “return to the environment 500 years ago and create a life in 50 years”. We should use intelligentized innovation technology create future scenarios of Eco-city with smart applications and innovation in the demonstration construction of ecological civilization.
The Guangyang Island Smart Innovation Eco-city needs to do a good job in six aspects: first, the overall coordination of island, bay, area and city; secondly, the overall coordination of production, life and ecology; thirdly, the overall coordination of the three key elements of wisdom, innovation and ecology; fourthly, the overall coordination of buildings, facilities and ecological background; fifthly, the overall coordination of stock, increment and blank; sixthly, the overall coordination of government, enterprise and financial platform.
The planning and construction of the Guangyang Island Smart Innovation Eco-city is to implement the requirements of the 18th/19th National Congress and the Second/Third/Fourth/Fifth Plenum of the 19th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and to implement General Secretary Xi Jinping’s proposals on showing concerted efforts in protection instead of development of the Yangtze River Economic Belt, and building the Chengdu-Chongqing economic circle. It is also an important measure to unswerving implement new concepts of development for Chongqing, to write a new chapter of prioritizing ecology for green development, and to create a new engine for high-quality development and a livable place with high quality of life.
