This study introduces a series of articles which respond to Pitts' call for a debate into current rights to light practice. It summarises relevant areas of law as well as current measurement and valuation practices in this area. Describes the Waldram methodology, grumble point, fifty-fifty rule and the concept of equivalent first zone loss. It also shows how these concepts are used to determine the amount of damages payable where a right to light has been infringed and calls for others to contribute to the debate proposed by Pitts.
