Announcement on International Solicitation for “East Sea Fairyland, Charming Fishing Port” - Conceptual Planning for Shuanglongwan Bay Area of Qushan Island
Urban Planning Society of China （the undertaker） is commissioned by People's Government of Qushan Town, Daishan County, and Daishan Natural Resources and Planning Bureau （the organizer） jointly to launch this open international solicitation activity for “East Sea Fairyland, Charming Fishing Port” - Conceptual Planning for Shuanglongwan Bay Area of Qushan Island （hereinafter referred to as “this solicitation activity”）。 The relevant matters are hereby announced as follows.
Qushan Island is located in the north-central part of Zhoushan Archipelago, Zhejiang Province. It is located at the “T”-shaped intersection of the country's North-South shipping channel and the Yangtze River Golden Waterway. It is at the forefront of the “Belt and Road” initiative and Yangtze River Economic Belt strategy. It is a strategic bridgehead for Zhejiang Province to develop its marine economy and connect with Shanghai, the sea gateway facing the Pacific Ocean, and also the core area of the outlying island area of Zhoushan Free Trade Zone （see Figure 1）。
Qushan Island is a core part of Daishan Scenic Area in Zhejiang Province, rich in humanities and natural resources, and strong island style. In recent years, Qushan Island has vigorously developed port economy, tourism economy, and fishing port economy, and strived to build “Yingzhou on the East China Sea, Free Trade Port City”. With the construction of the Zhoushan-Daishan Cross-sea Bridge, the external traffic convenience of Qushan Island will be greatly improved, and Qushan Island will usher in new development opportunities.
The Shuanglongwan Bay area of Qushan Island is one of the ten scenic spots of Qushan Island, which has representative island landscape, mountain forest scenery, pastoral style and fishing village style. Because the two main beaches in this area, Liangzhi beach and Shalong beach, look like dragons going out to the sea, it is called “Double Dragons Playing Pearl”. In recent years, the fishing houses and homestays in Shuanglongwan Bay Area have developed rapidly. However, the area currently has problems such as inaccurate development positioning, inconsistent island features, and low landscape quality, which cannot adapt to the new situation and new needs for high-quality development.
In order to innovate development ideas, scientifically determine the development positioning of Shuanglongwan Bay Area, give full play to its own advantages, promote the transformation and upgrading of the cultural tourism industry and the vigorous development of the marine economy, while improving the landscape quality of the Shuanglongwan Bay Area and promoting rural revitalization, it is planned to organize this international solicitation activity. Through this solicitation activity, high-quality design schemes are expected to help the construction of Great Island Garden of Zhejiang Province, and adapt to the new situation and changes of Qushan Island and the new needs of high-quality development.
