Abstract: Chinahas developed several housing policy reforms and has, in recent years,progressed further on developing policies to promote green strategies andenergy-saving plans. The urban housing has much benefited from such reforms andplans, while rural housing has experienced minimal change in the past fewdecades. As a result, this study aims to identify and explore thesedifferences, challenges, and implications that exist between three areas ofurban, peri-urban, and rural in a particular case study in China. For thisstudy, selected residential areas in the City of Zhuhai and its peri-urban andrural areas are selected as case studies.
