Rationally controlling the scale and speed of urban residence dismantling and removal
(8) Strictly controlling passive housing demand. All regions should, in accordance with the Notice of the General Office of the State Council on Controlling the Scale of Urban Residence Dismantling and Removal (State Council General Office Document  46), strengthen the planning management of residence dismantling and removal, rationally controlling the scale and speed of urban residence dismantling and removal so as to slow down the excessive increase of passive housing demand. Residence dismantling and removal scale in all regions should be controlled within the level of that in 2005. All regions should proceed with residence dismantling and removal according to their abilities and refrain from engaging in massive residence dismantling and construction. In the case that relocation and compensation policies are not in place, residence dismantling should not be conducted and legitimate rights of the masses should be by no means damaged.
