Solar access reduced in new proposal – DV346

This information came as a belated surprise to the LCA…

Environment and Planning Directorate proposed new rules for solar access. They allow further shadowing impingements on Southern neighbours whilst claiming to ‘simplify’ the current DV306 for solar access.

Information about DV346 here and a pdf summary of the proposal here.

If you have a comment to make email the EPD, the Minister for Planning, your local Minister, and/or your friends to spread the message regarding the new allowances proposed.

Consultation on the proposed draft variation was open until 7th April 2016,  but it’s never too late to make a comment.
