The impact on daylight and sunlight amenity to surrounding properties is a key factor for local planning authorities when determining whether to approve a planning application. Similarly, the provision of adequate daylight and sunlight is important when designing new accommodation.


The continuing demand for new homes and associated infrastructure means that cities and urban areas throughout the UK are becoming increasingly densely developed. This increase in density necessitates the careful consideration of daylight and sunlight amenity throughout the design process.
