Many laws and regulations in China have stipulated that housing demolition and land expropriation can be carried out based on the needs of public interests, but there is no clear explanation of the meaning of public interest. Demolition occurs with the development of the city, and many demolition behaviors need specific guidance. From the perspective of historical evolution, public interest and national construction are inseparable. From the perspective of text, public interest can be divided into public interest and interest. The judgment of public interest also needs to be supervised and restricted by other organs when it is handed over to administrative organs. By dividing the construction purpose into different categories, it is convenient to define the public interest with different strictness and judge the public interest with certain procedural principles with the hope to achieve the effect of improving the evaluation mode of public interest.
