For the time being, China is at its primary stage of low-carbon city development and nearly all the work are done with the design of macroscopical framework while the low-carbon processes within urban expansion in the long run is ignored. Therefore, we should turn this pure low-carbon theory into specific practices and implement them to the urban spatial organization. Besides, it is more and more important to deal with the uncertainties and confusions in the decision-making process using tools of process management. This study focuses on a totally new low-carbon city built from zero--Shanghai Lingang new town which has already become one of the best practice areas and demonstration areas in Shanghai for the discovery of effective ways to improve the planning management. Based on investigation analysis and case studies, we bring forward a new practical model about the process management of Lingang new town which is well organized in four phases, decision-making, planning, implementation, and maintenance. In this way, this new model correlates the urban development policy with the low-carbon practices and helps the seek of the real management method of low-carbon growth . This paper includes:(1) make a plan of action by integrating low-carbon policy, future development features and implementation measures, and integrate the plan into the management framework; (2) adjust development measurements, divide the developing process into baby step (3) organize every participant, make full use of up-bottom regulatory system and bottom-up public get evaluation and feedback.
