Solar access, overshadowing

This develop has an extreme effect on the direct sunlight we receive to our living spacing and garden and outdoor living spaces.

The provided 'View from the sun' diagrams are very interesting, but also misrepresent our properties sun access needs.

  • It only show one window into the side of our kitchen area, there are two

  • It omits a window into first floor bathroom, change room

  • It omits green wall garden running between the ground floor kitchen and bathroom window

  • It our solar panels, council approved because the roof slightly slopes forward in a heritage area

  • The diagrams also omit the fence, and oversizes the garden shed, which is same height of the (sometimes) missing fence.
