A three-story house standing in the middle of four-lane Huting Road North in Jiuting town of Songjiang district for over a decade will be demolished on September 18, Jiefang Daily reported Tuesday. The family who owns the house refused to relocate, as their neighbors did. In 2011, the family had disagreements with the local government about settlement issues. After a long period of negotiations, they recently accepted a deal. Rumors said that they have obtained a large amount of money. However, Zhang, one of the family members, said that in fact they were not paid any extra compensation.
