Waldrams Input Across the

DEVELOPMENT CYCLE

We offer cutting edge advice and strategies to resolve rights of light risks around development sites, through calculating rights of light injuries, negotiating with injured property owners, placing appropriate insurance. We can minimise client costs by leveraging our in-depth knowledge of case law and detailed technical analysis.

We have extensive experience in preparing daylight & sunlight reports for planning applications, as well as providing early support and scheme design advice through the calculation of maximum building envelopes and cutbacks.

Important for gaining successful planning permission, our analysis illustrates the extend of sunlight and shadow to amenity spaces at different hours of the day and year.

We have significant expertise in completing EIA chapters for mayor planning applications and achieving planning consent.

Solar glare is important where development is adjacent to railway tracks or mayor roads. Our analysis techniques, development in-house, comply with requirements of Network Rail to show when, how long and how intense solar glare from the facades of the development may be experienced and whether this is a hazard to rail and road users. 

This analysis quantifies the light emissions arising from a proposal. We offer advice on how to minimise light pollution without detriment to internal lighting.

Invaluable to architects and design team, our 3D optimisation tools maximise the development on site whilst minimising daylight and sunlight planning risk and Rights of Light risk to neighbouring properties.

Radiance Studies show the actual lit appearance of rooms to prove the acceptability of the daylight, thus showing were an actionable Rights of Light injury has been caused or to illustrate how the human eye may experience and perceive light within the room.

We can advise at an early stage on whether your project requires a Party Wall Notice under the Party Wall Act 1996 and can help you with Party Wall agreements, notices and advice.

We regularly are asked to be expert witnesses at planning appeals and have an excellent track record of gaining planning consent at appeal.
