Sunshine Survey

How important to you is sunshine?

How do proposed high-rises in your neighbourhood
affect your access to sunshine?

Homeowners and tenants are often concerned about the impact that shadowing from a proposed house addition next door, or a high-rise down the street, might have on their property.  In many cases, development is deemed good for a neighbourhood and proceeds on that basis.  After all, in an urban setting, development and re-development are to be expected, right?

But how much is too much in your opinion?  How much new shadow can you reasonably be expected to absorb in order for others' projects to proceed/succeed?

This survey asks you when and where sunshine is important to you.  Spring?  Summer?  Fall?  Winter?  Outdoors?  Indoors?  Patio?  Kitchen? etc. etc.  And how much new shadow is too much?  And does a great project, that improves your neighbourhood, increase your tolerance for new shadowing?

This short survey (2 minutes) seeks input to those questions, and more.

Help us to compile homeowners'/tenants' opinions on this subject - which has become a real challenge for municipalities.  After all, striking a balance between the needs of a municipality as a whole, and the needs of individual residents, is not an easy task for decision-makers.  Help us to better understand this dynamic by participating in this short survey - no sign-in is required and your feedback is completely anonymous.

Thank you kindly for your participation!
