Just goes to show what a complete sham are the quasi scientific light and visual impact studies on the council planning website, and the consultants who prepare them and dance to the tune of the developer.
Actually the daylight/sunlight report is largely about impacts on nearby residential uses and on the units within the development itself. The issue is the overshadowing of the park and that was clearly shown and an important consideration. I should point out that the previous scheme that was granted by John Prescott in 2006 would have cast a larger shadow on the park.
I'm not saying that it's ideal, but that the impact was considered in taking the decision.
