The aim of the article was to make an attempt to specify the meaning of the concept of 'public purpose', which is used in article 112 section 3 of the Act on real estate management of 21 August, 1997, highlighting its role as a reason for admissibility of expropriation with a simultaneous emphasis on the principle of expropriation subsidiarity and specifying the public purposes because of which expropriation is admissible: those specified in the Act on real estate management as well as in specific acts referred to in article 6 point 10 of the Act on real estate management. The performed analysis enabled a positive assessment of the way of defining purposes being a reason for admissibility of expropriation in accordance with the presently binding Act on real estate management in comparison with the regulations used by the legislature against a background of the Act on land management and expropriation of 29 April, 1985 and the Act on the principles and procedures of expropriation of 12 March, 1958. It also triggered a call for even more detailed specification of what a public purpose is in accordance with the Act on real estate management.
