China's total planned housing land supply in 2010 will increase to 180,000 hectares, a big increase compared to the actual land supply of more than 76,000 hectares last year, according the Ministry of Land and Resources.

Low-income housing, shantytown renovation and small and medium-sized commercial residential housing account for more than 70 percent of the planned land supply, said Liao Yonglin, director of the Department of Land Use and Administration.

Low-income housing, shantytown renovation and small and medium sized commodity housing account for 77 percent of the plan in 2010. Total land supply of small and medium-sized commodity housing will be about 80,000 hectares, exceeding the amount of national actual housing land use last year.

The planned land supply for low-income housing will increase in 2010, and is expected to meet the demand. The land allocated for low-income housing is more than 24,000 hectares, more than doubled compared with last year.

The land for low-cost housing accounts for 29 percent of the total low-income housing allocation, surging 472 percent compared to the actual land supply in 2009. The central government will also issue a construction mission of 3 million low-income houses.

In addition, shantytown renovation's land use plan is involved in the housing land supply management for the first time. China will finish 2.8 million units for shantytown renovation this year. The land use plan for it reaches 35,786 hectares at present, accounting for 19 percent of housing program. Amid it, low-income housing land in shantytown renovation is 20,462 hectares, accounting for 57 percent of total shantytown renovation land use. The land proportion for solving housing problems for low-income groups accounts for 24 percent of total land.
