[Research of Xinqiang Community] Notes of Research on Marginal Village in Shenzhen





In order to enhance the land use potential in communities, to entitle residents to the fruits of urban development, and promote community harmony, Urban Planning, Land and Resources Commission of Shenzhen Municipality decided that the theme of community planners this year was “improve the quality of living environmen by reforming the land management system”. Xinqiang Community of Guangming New District (formerly a state-owned overseas Chinese farm) has drawn wide attention as a typical example of the unbalanced development of marginal communities amid Shenzhen’s rapid development. On March 9th, Huang Weiwen, Vice Chief Urban Planner of Urban Planning, Land and Resources Commission of Shenzhen Municipality, accompanied by Mr. Ma, staff of Design Center and Chen Chang of the Guangming Administration, conducted a field investigation at Xinqiang Community. During the research, Design Center kept following up the development of Xinqiang Community, and strove to build a cooperation platform by gathering scholars in various fields and volunteers and encouraging suggestions for regional development.
