BLDA Consultancy undertook a daylight and sunlight assessment, considering light levels within the proposed scheme as well as the effects on the existing residential buildings. BLDA Consultancy also carried out an overshadowing study, simulating an anticipated impact on the surrounding amenity areas. BLDA Consultancy’s analysis and report played a significant role in the scheme gaining planning consent.
