Right to Light
When developing a site it is important to understand the potential impact on light to neighbouring properties at design stage, to mitigate potential claims against you. We are able to review design schemes from the outset and advise you and your design team on necessary adjustments to the proposals to reduce infringement upon a neighbour’s right to light. Once we have the information from our right to light analysis, we advise on a suitable strategy to deliver the scheme on time.
If your property is next to a site being developed, we carry out an analysis of the proposed scheme to determine the impact on light on you. This involves carrying out a measured survey of your property and inputting this survey data into the contextual model and running the analysis. Following this, we can assist you with negotiating with the developer to either adapt the scheme to mitigate the loss of light or agree a settlement.
