 Matters that are considered to be relevant to the examination by the commission include: (i) the area of the land to be expropriated or vacated, (ii) compensation for loss, and (iii) the time when the right holders will be deprived of their rights or by when they are required to vacate the land.

【Commentary】 Right to request expropriation of the remaining land

 If only a part of a land area is expropriated and it would be extremely difficult for the remaining land alone to fulfill the prior use of the land, the landowner may request in the written opinion that the remaining land be expropriated as well.
