Abstract: Metropolitanization represent current development trend of prefecture-level cities in China. However, as the county has the autonomous power in urban planning, county comprehensive plans are seldom coordinated with those for the central city. Based on the synergetic spatial development perspective, this paper Teveals first the disconnection of planning policies between city and county which causes divers problems in spatial development within the municipal territory. After identifying the relevant players and their synergistic development demands, the paper puts forward a framework for elaborating the synergistic development plan for prefecture-level cities. Strategic synergy, systematic synergy and regulatory synergy are the key components of the plan. The paper takes the city of Luoyang as the case and the spatial development plan of its northern areas is used to illustrate this exploratory planning approach.
