Rights to Light Norwich

We have the most experienced team of specialist Rights of Light surveyors based in Norwich and around the UK.

With this unrivalled expertise, our Norwich rights of light surveyors deliver solutions to schemes affected by rights of light, maximizing the development potential of a site whilst respecting the amenity of neighbouring buildings.

Our Norwich Rights to Light surveyors provide specialist advice in the city and across the whole of East Anglia.

Rights to Light can be one of the key determinants of the development potential of a site, particularly in dense urban areas.

No matter the size of a project, from modest residential work to the largest commercial developments, we apply the same expertise, care and attention to detail.

We work with investors, developers, owners and occupiers to assess schemes and provide clear strategic advice on potential issues, whilst proactively managing any associated risk.

With our practical and creative approach we look to take account of the commercial opportunities as well as the limitations.

Rights to Light for Developers

From site acquisition through to the resolution of rights by negotiation, we advise our clients on how to optimise the development potential of a site, whilst mitigating the impact to affected neighbours.

Using the latest specialist software and 3D laser scan data, we create 3D models and undertake cutting edge analysis.

We deliver solutions to affected schemes, maximizing the development potential of sites and providing certainty to enable development to progress.
