The electronic version of the Eco-Low Carbon (ELC) Urban Planning Methodology is now available for public download.

The download is free of charge, aiming to benefit Chinese city planners with a clear and practical ELC urban planning tool and inform stakeholders that are important for a successful implementation of the methodology with more details.

Funded by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) Prosperity Fund with co-funding from China’s Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development (MOHURD), development of the methodology was led by Atkins, in collaboration with the China Society for Urban Studies (CSUS).

The methodology is aimed at providing a blueprint for ELC urban planning in China. In promoting a new type of urban planning to meet the requirements of the new type of urbanisation in China, the guidance places strong emphasis on integration (technical, process and conceptual), understanding local context, and human scale development in harmony with nature, as well as the importance of place making in urban form, and partnering to finance ELC development through green credit initiatives.
