 Shaoxing mode of ancient city protection: how to relieve the pressure of capital?


Shaoxing Ancient City Bayi Bridge

In the history of urban construction in China and the world, the city site has not changed for thousands of years, and the pattern remains the same. On this basis, as one of the first batch of famous historical and cultural cities in China, Shaoxing has been exploring Shaoxing mode.

Balance between urban development and ancient city protection

The ancient city of Shaoxing, with an area of 9.09 square kilometers, is getting shorter. According to local media reports, once the highest building Shaoxing building and other high-rise buildings were demolished, the original two 12 storey administrative center was reduced to 5 floors, and then some other high-rise buildings will be gradually relieved.

In the process of urbanization and modernization with the rapid development of civil engineering and the rise of high-rise buildings, the transformation, demolition and falling of high-rise buildings attract peoples attention. In fact, in the balance between urban development and ancient city protection, Shaoxing has been thinking, planning and practicing.

Didang new town, Shaoxing

In May this year, Ma Weiguang, Secretary of the Shaoxing Municipal Party committee, once again stressed that it is necessary to sing the two city plan, not only to develop the new city, but also to protect the ancient city, and to adhere to the idea of integrated development of culture, commerce and tourism, so as to make the ancient city the most dazzling pearl in Shaoxings urban cultural system.

Development and protection are no longer the contradiction of the ebb and flow, but the two legs to enhance the value of the city.

Xu Juemin told the first finance and economics reporter that 1000 square meters in remote mountainous areas may not be as valuable as 1 square meters in big cities. By protecting the ancient city, the quality and value of the whole city have been improved, that is, the reduction of the number of units and the increase of unit value are the longer-term interests.

With the concept of protection, we should keep up with the thinking of rational utilization. This is also the unique feature of the Shaoxing model - on January 1, 2019, the regulations on the protection and utilization of the ancient city of Shaoxing (hereinafter referred to as the Regulations) was officially implemented. Different from the focus on protection in most ancient cities, Shaoxing has added the word utilization.

In Ma Weiguangs words, the ancient city is the essence of Shaoxings Millennium culture. Strengthening the protection and utilization of the ancient city is a major task to build a modern urban system and restructure the urban cultural system.

As a legal guarantee for the protection and utilization of the ancient city of Shaoxing, the regulations stipulate that the existing buildings (structures) within the scope of the ancient city that do not meet the requirements of the urban skyline, traditional pattern and historical features should be gradually implemented according to the relevant planning for the protection of the ancient city. These policies and regulations have become the implementation basis of a series of projects, such as Reconstruction, demolition and floor lowering.

While the ancient city is gradually restored to shape, it is necessary to produce comprehensive benefits through reasonable utilization to feed back the protection of the ancient city. The government does not consider making money, but it should make this area active.

In order to better protect and utilize Shaoxing, in addition to the implementation of the regulations last year, the Protection Office of Shaoxing historical and cultural city, which is specially responsible for the protection, utilization, supervision and management of the ancient city, and promotes the integrated development of culture, commerce and tourism of the ancient City, emerges as the times require. This has also become an innovative move in the protection of the ancient city by establishing a special department to coordinate the relevant departments and break through the institutional barriers u3002

One city, one bridge, three hometowns and many other projects have been carried out one after another in the past year. Such a speed and scale are things that I would never have thought of in the past. At the same time, Shaoxing independently compiled the 14th five year plan for the protection and utilization of the ancient city block.

In addition, Shaoxing has set up an expert advisory committee on the protection and utilization of the ancient city to provide directional and professional suggestions for the protection and utilization of the ancient city. This is equivalent to the government purchasing services, allowing professional teams to participate in the protection and utilization of the ancient city, so as to provide cultural basis for the integrated development of culture, commerce and tourism.

How to relieve the financial pressure

This challenge is also reflected in the protection of the ancient city - how to make good use of the existing resources to provide financial support for the protection of the ancient city, and how to leverage more social capital to settle in the ancient city, obviously requires the wisdom of the local government.

The investment in the protection of the ancient city is very large, and the funding gap is not small. Xu Juemin said frankly that in terms of the protection of the ancient city, the state level expenditure subsidies are less, and the financial pressure mainly falls on the shoulders of local governments. Every year, Shaoxing will draw a certain proportion from the urban land transfer fees as a special fund for the protection of the ancient city, but this fund is far from enough.

Another example is to package the whole transformation of a region to the industrial operation company to sell the land to the enterprise. At the same time, the enterprise is also required to simultaneously operate the protection and utilization projects of the ancient city, which piece of cultural transformation and which industrial heritage should be preserved should be done well at the same time..

In the view of Shaoxing people, the protection and utilization of the ancient city is a long process. We need to dig out the cultural heritage, then use culture to promote the rise of tourism, and then use tourism to drive local consumption and commercial development. The economic benefits brought by these industries are used to support the cultural affairs of the ancient city. This is the concept of integration of culture, commerce and tourism.

According to the data, Shanghai is the largest tourist destination for tourism consumption in Shaoxing. Many Shanghai people, whose ancestors were Shaoxing people, came to feel homesickness and experience the culture of Jiangnan Water Village, which has become the main force of local cultural and tourism consumption. With the high-speed rail, it is convenient to come and go..

Xu Juemin thinks that the quality of the city has been improved, and the overall social benefits have been improved, so that local residents and foreign tourists can get more happiness and satisfaction, instead of just looking at the benefits of individual projects. After all, many big IPS like Lu Xuns hometown not only consider the profit angle, but also embody the value in the protection of ancient city and cultural heritage. With the introduction of cultural elements and business innovation model, the ancient city with perfect public facilities is attracting more and more young people and investors. Before, an Internet company came to visit us and saw the old houses in the ancient city, so he proposed to set up the office here in the future. This group of young people only need network and equipment for office work, and the rest rely on wisdom to start a business. For young people and technology entrepreneurs, he said, memories of childhood can be found here, and a comfortable environment can better stimulate their creativity.
