CPD Events

We often get asked to give Continuing Professional Development (CPD) talks to property professionals.

Most commonly these comprise talks to firms of architects, surveyors/project managers and/or Local Authority Planning Departments.

We regularly lecture to the University of Northumbria at Newcastle.  This allows us to educate Building Surveying students on the differences between Daylight and Sunlight matters for Planning Requirements, and the legal matters of Right of Light.

Additionally, we also give in-house, 1 to 1.5 hours CPD talks to firms who might have a need to understand such matters.

    “Adrian is a leading expert on rights to light, an area of practice that can have massive implications if neglected even for small domestic projects. He has given lectures to the Building Surveying students at Northumbria which have been very interesting and informative and his contribution to the education of our future practitioners is very greatly appreciated.”

    “Very many thanks indeed for delivering your very clear and comprehensive presentation to our M. Arch students at Manchester School of Architecture on : ‘Planning standards for light and sunlight, compared with civil rights to light with examples’. The students were surprised and intrigued by the topic and realised that an understanding of these subjects is imperative for practitioners, which of course most of them will soon be.”
