Requested Tue 14 April 2020
Responded Mon 20 April 2020
As part of an academic research, I am requesting information on how planning applications for proposed residential developments are assessed in terms of visual privacy( Particularly overlooking of garden spaces). Below is my request.
In your Local Authority,
1. Is 'Separation Distances between buildings' the only method used as a guide to assess visual privacy in the determination of planning applications for proposed residential developments?
2. If the answer to question 1 is no, what other methods are used to assess visual privacy in the determination of planning application for proposed residential developments?
For question 1, can you provided me with a 'Yes' or 'No'.
For question 2, can you provide me with just a list of the methods.
If there are no established guidelines on how visual privacy is accessed, can you also include that in your response.
2. An on site assessment.
