BRE guidance on natural lighting

BRE has issued updated guidelines on ways to achieve good natural lighting in homes and non-domestic buildings. These guidelines are widely used by local authorities to help determine whether a new development blocks too much daylight and sunlight to existing properties nearby. This report supersedes 1991 guidelines and gives advice on site layout to achieve good sunlighting and daylighting — both within buildings and in the open spaces between them.
