In the revisions proposed in the latest version of the application it remains the case that compliance with the “45 degree rule” for daylight and sunlight effects on neighbours is claimed, but not demonstrated. In addition there is no explanation of how the privacy of the neighbouring property is protected and indeed the new version potentially increases the threat. We recommend that more details are required before the application can be properly assessed.
