Abstract: The small towns in Anhui Province are numerous and small in scale. In the process of the development of small towns,the exploitation of land is increasing too fast,besides,its development is at the expense of sacrificing cultivated land. The structure of the exploitation of land is not reasonable and there is too much waste,the utilization ratio of land is low. At the same time,the environment of production and living in small towns is poor.The reasons are as follows:(1) The level of the economic development of the society is relatively low,and the motive force of the development of small towns is lacking.(2) There is no unified,scientific and comprehensive plan for small towns'construction.(3) The investment in infrastructure construction is insufficient.(4) The traditional dual system of registered permanent residence and the great cost of moving to towns restrict the moving of peasants to towns.(5) The original policy on land isn't geared to the requirements of market economy,and it is difficult to cultivate the land market of small towns.(6) In the occupation and supplying of cultivated land,quantity is paid attention to,while quality is ignored.(7) The illegal exploitation of land in small towns'coustruction is obvious and shocking.(8) The administration of land of small towns is weak.To realize the sustainable exploitation of the land of the small towns in Anhui Province,the plan for small towns'system must be perfected,and the small towns must be orientated scientifically and developed step by step. The function of centralized adjusting and controlling in the land use plan should be strengthened and the utilization ratio of small towns'land should be increased. The reform on the relevant systems and policies should be carried out. The reasonable distribution mechanism of land income must be established,and the land market of small towns should be cultivated. Administration of land must be strengthened to maintain the order of land market.
