Large scale developments constituting an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) could prompt local authorities to instruct an independent third party Daylight, Sunlight and Overshadowing consultancy to validate the applicant’s Environmental Statement (ES) Chapter covering Daylight, Sunlight and Overshadowing. The same applies where a cluster of new builds occur in the same proximity, or where a client simply requires a second opinion for a belt and braces approach.

As a daylight and sunlight consultant, EK McQuade have a wealth of experience in dealing with such requests and can act as an expert witness when required.
