Abstract: Urban planning in China is in transition after its economic reform. Development zones are experimentation fields of the planning reform. In planning these zones, ineffective planning control commonly existed.Suzhou used to be a traditional tourism city in China. Since the 1990s, it has experienced dramatic change. Along with the rapid urban expansion, urban constructions in the unit of urban districts gradually dispersed the traditionally concentric structure. The promotion of the districtsa?? commercial centers further pushes the trend of becoming multi-nodal. The two national development zones SND and SIP accommodate most of the modern urban development in Suzhou. The SIP runs its unique planning system and has successfully achieved systematic planning and effective planning control. Its commercial core was announced to be the municipal CBD in future. This dissertation investigates the SIP urban planning as a case study, with focuses on planning structure and implementation process.
