If you have received letters of notice from your local authority, or have your own concerns that a neighbouring development could adversely affect your property’s access to natural light, we have a team of experts in the field of daylight and sunlight matters for neighbours who are here to help guide you through any potential assessments and neighbour disputes.

When any property or its amenity area could potentially lose natural light because of a proposed neighbouring development, there is an opportunity to raise an objection during the consultation stage of the planning process. This could apply to any permanent occupier, though it usually means residential occupiers. Whatever your circumstances, we have the expertise to guide you through the process and protect your access to light.
