What do you need to know about daylight calculations?
According to the law, every property in the UK has a ‘right to light’, which is a certain amount of natural light. The more you have access to, the less you have to rely on artificial light and the lower your energy bills will be. When constructing or altering a property, it is important to be aware of how much light you are giving yourself access to, and whether or not you are depriving your neighbours of theirs. Infringing on another property owner’s right to light is an offence which could result in you being forced to change or undo your work.
‘Daylight calculations’ are designed to calculate how much natural light a property has access to. The calculations will be made using specialist software and will determine whether your right to light is being threatened, identify injunction risks and estimate compensation valuations. This can be very useful during the design stage of a project, when they can help you to maximise your light access. You may also require the service if another development is threatening your access to natural light. Once you have the results of the calculations, your assessor should be able to provide valuable advice on how you can amend your project.
