Daylight and sunlight are important design constraints in urban areas, both for the new development itself and existing buildings. The key is to ensure that new developments receive enough light, and do not block the ‘right to light’ for existing buildings or open spaces nearby. BRE’s document BR 209, ‘Site layout planning for daylight and sunlight: a guide to good practice‘ is widely used as guidance in these situations.
Bre can help with Right to Light Planning and we also have a webinar on ‘Circadian Lighting Effects on Health and Well-Being‘. Lighting publications are available on the BRE Bookshop. Our publication Lighting and Health reviews existing research on the health effects of lighting (including daylighting) typically found in buildings.
