This week I attended a CPD seminar presented by GVA Schatunowski Brooks on daylight and sunlight and rights to light.
Daylight and Sunlight issues are an important part of planning and development and are a topic area which we require a good level of knowledge on, especially working on projects within central London. I found the CPD session both insightful and useful and it gave me good understanding of the issues.
This week I also prepared a tender for the planning consultancy role on a mixed use scheme in London. This involved creating a planning strategy outlining the stages which we would take to submitting a planning application and ultimately achieving permission. I also drew upon previous developments which the department has worked on, which were used as case studies to show similar projects which we have advised on.
