  • The 3rd edition of the BRE Report BR209 ‘Site layout planning for daylight and sunlight: a guide to good practice’ was published in June 2022. This presentation addresses the importance of daylight and sunlight for the built environment and gives general advice on overshadowing and provision of daylight and sunlight to buildings in built up areas. It includes an introduction into the contents of BR209 and how to use it, including what is new in the 3rd edition compared to the previous one.
