The land consolidation in rural residential areas is a core issue of land regulation planning. The purpose of this study is to scientifically calculate realistic potential and formulate suitable strategy of land consolidation in rural residential areas for 18 towns in Suixian County based on public policy, households’willingness and establishment of a natural-economic-social-ecological-planning comprehensive correction index system. Methods of questionnaire investigations and multi-factor assessment method were employed. The results indicate: 1) The comprehensive modification coefficients lie between 5.15%-9.84%, which show that the possibility of theoretical potential translated into realistic has great regional difference. 2) The realistic potential of land consolidation in rural residential areas is 2035.23 hm2 in Suixian County from 2011 to 2020, which accounts for 17.80% of the theoretical potential and occupies 10.01% of rural residential area. The calculation results are in line with the actual situation of Suixian County and the requirement of land use planning. 3) According to the realistic potential coefficient, the 18 towns can be divided into 4 levels. The potential coefficient of level I area is above 11%, which have larger per capita land use, superior location, developed socio-economy, high enthusiasm of government and farmers. The demonstration area can be priority established in towns with great potential, which also should be done on the basis of social and economic infrastructure and development strategies of each town. And the land consolidation mode should be innovated and land consolidation in rural residential areas should be orderly improved. It is concluded that the calculation method and consolidation strategy are of scientificness and practicality to a certain degree, and can provide a more effective basis and reference for a new round of land consolidation in rural residential areas.

Key words: land consolidation of rural residential areas, realistic potential, consolidation strategy, households’willingness, Suixian County
