It is often the case that a neighbour raises concerns to the Local Authorities about overshadowing during a planning application process. As our normal workflow pipeline is 3D it is simple for us to generate shadow maps for particular times of the day and submit them to the Local Authorities or your neighbours to alleviate concerns.
We have made great progress in reducing our cost for this service, get in touch with us for excellent rates.
For this particular project the neighbours were worried about overshadowing. It was trivial to show them an accurate representation of the shadows for a particular time of day because we already had a 3D building information model of the proposed development.
