Kevin Francis Managing Partner of GIA Belfast has provided essential training at City Hall to Belfast City Council Planners, covering Daylight and Sunlight and Overshadowing.

Daylight and Sunlight is a specialist subject which can be difficult to understand. It is becoming more of an issue as buildings go higher and density increases, there is an obligation on planners to protect the Daylight and Sunlight amenity of neighbouring buildings whilst delivering on large scale redevelopment.

Kevin noted that it was important to provide all councils with an insight into the subject of Daylight and Sunlight as it is a consideration that will affect most planners now in their role moving forward.

GIA are able to demonstrate how Daylight and Sunlight affect developments in real time using our latest proptech platform VU.CITY and specialist apps that provide an overall contextual approach to your development.
