Privatisation of the public purposes
The main aim of presented paper is to show that the current interpretation of the article 6 of the Land Administration Act of 1997 is not adapted to the economic needs of the state. Currently, in the free market economy regime, the state is not obliged to satisfy directly the needs of society as a whole. In Poland since the beginning of the system transformation we have been dealing with a phenomenon described as ‘privatization of public administration’, which means that in many cases, the providers of public purposes are not public authorities, but private companies. The article draws attention to the practical interpretation of the term ‘public purpose’, which does not have to be reduced only to the possibility of expropriation in favour of public entities.
