Impact on rooflight minimal in amenity objection

An inspector agreed that planning officers dealing with a mixed use scheme in north London had been right to recommend approval, the impact on an adjoining resident as a consequence of reduced sunlight and daylight through a roof light judged to be acceptable.

The scheme proposed a ground floor retail unit and three floors of residential units and a sunlight and daylight study accompanied the application. This showed the impact on light entering the rooflight would not be materially reduced. The inspector accepted that there would not be any significant loss of privacy or overlooking and since the stairwell to which it provided light also benefited from two other rooflights which were not affected, the scheme was acceptable.
