New construction and expansion activities are not allowed within this scope, except for the construction and expansion of necessary infrastructure and public service facilities.

Dangerous old houses that have collapsed or are on the verge of collapse may be rebuilt and renovated, and procedures shall be handled in accordance with relevant laws and regulations. Cultural relics protection units at all levels, ungraded immovable cultural relics, and historical buildings shall not be demolished.
