Our Daylight, Sunlight and Overshadowing (DSO) assessments will enhance your planning journey by ensuring that you follow Buildings Research Establishment (BRE) guidance to maintain British Standards. This assessment is required as part of the planning process and we will ensure that you receive the information you need to fulfil your planning obligations as quickly as possible.

A DSO assessment determines the interrelationship between a proposed building and those surrounding it to establish whether overshadowing will affect the skylight and sunlight received through windows and in green spaces. This phenomenon can create amenity issues which can ultimately lead to objections and planning refusal, which can cost you time and money to resolve. If you would like to find out more about how we assess the effects of overshadowing, please follow the link.

When is an assessment required?

A DSO assessment is required when a new building as the potential to affect residential and office spaces in those buildings surrounding it. The assessment may also have to consider the impact upon open green spaces such as parks and gardens. Our bespoke software has the capability to model the effects upon all of these receptors so you’ll know the impact of your proposed development and thus can make informed design choices that will streamline the planning process.

How is access to daylight and sunlight assessed?

More information on our bespoke modelling process can be found here. The overall outcome of the report will show you whether your proposed development would create an acceptable impact in accordance with BRE 209, with recommendations for how to move your project forward in the event it does not comply with the guidance.
