Our dedicated rights of light team work closely with clients to provide advice in relation to daylight, sunlight, overshadowing and rights of light matters, and deliver dynamic and bespoke solutions that maximise the development potential of a site.
We work with developers, local authorities and private clients on projects ranging from small private developments through to major regeneration schemes, providing expert advice on daylight, sunlight and overshadowing amenity from the outset of a project through to supporting planning applications as well as advice on all aspects of legal rights to light including strategy, advice, reports and insurance.
With our expert knowledge and using the latest software, we can pinpoint potential problems quickly and provide fast, strategic advice to enable developers to design the best schemes for development sites whilst navigating through often challenging Right to Light restrictions.
Throughout the design development stages of a project, we also work closely with the architects devising design solutions that seek to reduce Rights of Light risks wherever possible.
