Building Height Explained

Building Height is an important and often contentious issue when it comes to planning policy. The height of buildings can have a dramatic impact on local communities, completely transforming the look and feel of an area. Influencing factors for building height include:

  • Local context
  • Street conditions
  • Visual amenity,
  • Key view fields
