Jul 02, 2019 (China Knowledge) -

Yesterday, Huang Yan, Vice Minister of Housing and Urban-Rural Development, announced that 170,000 old urban neighborhoods will be renovated in China, involving hundreds of millions of residents.

According to the requirements of the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development, all regions should prioritize auxiliary facilities such as water, electricity and optical fibers. In areas where conditions permit, elevators can be installed, child-care services, barrier-free facilities and parking garages can be built.

Old urban neighborhoods refer to residential areas may have been built more than 20 years ago. Due to previously low design standards and poor maintenance, many of these areas have exhibited problems such as old and worn pipelines, road damage, disorder and private construction.

Huang Yan said that the next step is to find out the types of old urban communities and residents' needs for transformation, and to clarify the standards for the renovation of these areas.

By actively innovating and improving mechanisms for the renovation of old urban communities, can we establish a long-term management mechanism for residential areas.
