Abstract：Historical districts are faced with problems of inadequate features protection and landscape destruction in the process of urban development. At the present stage, the urban design of historical districts has a series of problems，like inadequate expression of characteristics、incomplete framework and the lack of transformation route from design to implementation. Urban design based on action planning is action-oriented with characteristics of comprehensive planning, complete workflow and clear implementation projects, which is a new attempt for urban design of historical districts. Urban design of Xi'an Shuncheng Lane used action planning as a concept, established an framework including "current status and problems—target location and strategy—action project and timing—achievement improvement and evaluation", to achieve effective implementation in historical districts.
