Law Commission consultation on Rights to Light – PLA response


This optional response form is provided for consultees’ convenience in responding to our Consultation Paper on Rights to Light.

You can download the Consultation Paper free of charge from our website at: (see A-Z of projects > Rights to Light).

The response form includes the text of the questions and provisional proposals in the Consultation Paper, with space for answers. You do not have to respond to every question or proposal. Answers are not limited in length (the box will expand, if necessary, as you type).

Each question and provisional proposal is followed by a reference to the Chapter of the Consultation Paper in which that question or proposal is discussed, and the paragraph at which it can be found. Please consider the discussion before responding.

We invite responses from 18 February 2013 to 16 May 2013.
