Abstract: Environment Impact Assessment of land use planning is important for policy maker to make the relative decision such as the farmland protection, conversion the cultivated land to forest land, land degradation control and so on. Since the research in this scope has just been began in China, to explore the characteristics and content of land use planning in China is the important base. In this paper, the relation of traditional project environment impact assessment and EIA of land use planning, the role of EIA of land use planning in improving land use planning is analyzed. Firstly, EIA of land use planning makes the traditional land use planning’s effect assessment more deep; Secondly, it is an application in regional level of environment effect of land use change, it belongs to planning lay of SEA. When we assess the environmental impact of land use planning, the following aspects should be considered, the environmental problem which land use planning may induce to, to adapt the type and spatial system of land use planning, and take the ecological environmental problem as the main aspect. Then the effect to water environment, soil environment, ecological system and natural disaster of land use planning bring is mainly assessed as the content of EIA of land use planning. Also, The procedures of EIA of land use planning suitable to China is given, including to select the environmental problem which are induced by land use planning, to identify relative environmental factors used for assessment, to assess the environment impact degree of land use planning produces and give the rational advice for land use planning. Finally, Some significant suggestion is given in the end, such as to begin with applied basic research of EIA of land use planning, to set up spatial system of EIA of land use planning, to build basic database special for EIA of land use planning, to set up the indicator and methodology system with Chinese characteristic, to enlarge cooperation of multiple science and enhance the public participation.

Key words: environment impact assessment, land use planning, strategic environment impact assessment
