Site Planning for Natural light. Access to daylight and sunlight is a vital part of a healthy environment. Sensitive design should provide sufficient daylight and sunlight to new housing while not obstructing light to existing homes nearby.

The BRE Report, Site layout planning for daylight and sunlight: a guide to good practice (BR). Book Description. This Digest considers the causes of dampness in walls and how to remedy rising damp if found.

It is important to diagnose properly the source of any dampness. If a building already has a physical damp-proof course, it is unlikely that it has failed, as most dpc materials have a long life. Book Description This Digest provides guidance on the assessment of the significance of tilt of low-rise buildings resulting from foundation movement.
