State may offer subsidies to isle developers (2)

"We welcome foreign developers, but the list doesn't include islands with military and political importance," said an island management official who gave his name only as Wang.

He said overseas companies can apply to local oceanic and fishery bureaus, who assess all proposed projects with experts from the State Oceanic Administration.

Plans should include details about the intended use, how much of the land will be covered with plants, and about waste and sewage disposal.

"In simple cases, applications take about two months. If the case is complicated, the waiting period may be longer," Wang added.

On Tuesday, the State Oceanic Administration issued China's first license to develop an uninhabited island to Huang Yimin, a businessman from Ningbo, Zhejiang province, who since 2009 has spend more than 3.4 million yuan ($536,000) making Danmenshan Island into a tourist resort.

According to the administration's guidelines released in August, new buildings should be at least 20 meters from a island's coastline, while developers are encouraged to build water-storage projects.
