The urban construction in China takes the historical city as the core position for constantly transforming and expanding internally. In history, the marginal zone formed by the consolidation of the city walls has gradually changed into a special zone of “half city and half country” in the process of internal and external two-way erosion. As a result, the buffer zone between the old and new urban areas plays an important role. In reality, the boundary development of historical city is approaching the historical heritage itself and causing it to lose the original historical aura. Combing with the characteristics and problems under the conservation and development of new area in ancient city, this paper puts forward the conservation and development strategies in three aspects: transportation inside and outside the ancient city, interaction of new and old styles, and industrial planning transfer in view of the buffer zone with half urban and half rural environmental characteristics between the ancient city and the new area, hoping to promoting unified planning of renewal of ancient city and construction of new area to ensure the coordinated development of them, to realize the overall conservation plan of the ancient city, and the buffer zone withinit.
