【Abstract】China is extending land use control to all land spaces of the whole state. This paper puts forward the theory of regional green space, aiming to break the regional boundary between urban garden green space and suburban natural ecological space, and at the same time, to implement unified control over green resources dependent on ecological, urban, and agricultural spaces. Through the analysis of the theory of regional green space use control and the definition of the scope of regional green space, the main problems of regional green space use control in China in the aspects of accounting balance, acquisition cost, planning and management and regulations are explored, and policy suggestions are put forward to further improve the theory of land and space use control and provide reference for the construction of a control system about the spatial use of natural resources.
