Title

Language

Abstract

This article investigates the 'state-led' approach to the planning of villages-in-the-city in Shenzhen City, China. Villages-in-the-city have been regarded as spaces of disorder in Chinese cities because existing planning prescriptions have not been able to address effectively the problems related to their development. An aggressive approach has recently been adopted to the development/redevelopment of these settlements. This article shows how a new regulatory framework to villagesin- the-city has emerged recently, and how this has impacted on different dimensions of their development. © 2009 Taylor & Francis.
