China Releases New Rules for Cities

Xinhua: China outlines roadmap to build better cities
Priority will be given to the protection of farmland, while land for construction use will be "properly allocated". The country plans to take around five years to inspect and clear up illegal construction.

It also called for city planners to differentiate cities with urban landscape based on local characteristics.

...To ease traffic jams in the cities, China looks to expand public transport network such as buses and railways. By 2020, China aims to raise the penetration of public transport to 40 percent in megacities, 30 percent in big cities and 20 percent in medium- and small cities.
The Chinese article 中央明确城市未来发展路线图 10个任务被限定时间表 gives the specific target for roads. Road denstiy can be increased ro 8km per square kilometer and 15% of area. Three of the ten points in the plan covered garbage and sewage.
