calfordseaden provided daylight and sunlight analysis and reports to support the planning application for Hackney Wick, a high-quality mixed-use development.

The scheme will provide 190 mixed-tenure residential units, shared ownership, private sale housing and London Affordable Rent. The scheme also benefits from commercial space, community and leisure space, together with associated amenity and child play space, cycle parking, refuse storage, access, servicing and landscaped public realm.

Daylight and sunlight was a major factor for the planning committee to consider and communication with the client was maintained regularly throughout the process. Planning permission was granted in July 2022.

Challenges surfaced during the application process due to the scheme involving five buildings across the site with a range of height and massing which had an effect on the existing surrounding buildings.

calfordseaden have also given advice to maximise the daylight and sunlight to the proposed habitable rooms.
