The reasonable and orderly development of ecological-living-industrial spaces is of great significance for land function combination,ordering spatial development,guiding population resource environments and ensuring socio-economic sustainable development in urban areas. In this study,a set of frameworks for the suitability evaluation of spatial development suitability for city construction was built,from the perspective of the ecological-living-industrial function of land resources. The spatial suitability method was applied to evaluate spatial suitability for city construction in Ningbo city,using GIS technology with comprehensive territory spatial partition of ‘puff pastry’ means. The results show that in 2012,the ecological space of Ningbo covered 5872 km2,which accounted for 60.35% of the total area,and the distribution was mainly in Ningxiang in southern Ningbo. Industrial space covered an area of 2442km2,accounting for 25.10% of the total area,and the distribution was concentrated in central and northern plains in Ningbo. Living space covered an area of 1415.78km2,accounting for 14.55% of the total area and concentrated in six core areas of Ningbo. There was more unsuitable region for city construction space than other types in Ningbo in 2012;the unsuitable area was 5655km2 and the rate of ecological,industrial and living spaces was 3491. The critical suitable space area was 2279km2,and the ecological and industrial space rate was 21. More suitable space was 1526km2,and the industrial and living space ratio was 1:2. Generally suitable space was last at 268km2. The development potential is larger in Yuci in the north and Ningxiang in the south. Even though the territory spatial development suitability for construction was better in the center,it has a long history of development and the development potential was limited. It would be appropriate to revitalize this stock and improve its efficiency.

Key words: city, ecological-living-industrial space, territory, construction suitability, ordered development, Ningbo City
