Views of greenery or countryside are beneficial for our well-being as research suggests.
So, think about making some design changes to make the most of the views around your living space. If you think a new development may hinder your view, or result in loss of privacy, overlooking, overshadowing, loss of light or loss of amenity spaces, such as green spaces, you should object early in the planning process of the proposed build if necessary.

If you live in a high rise and wish to create a greenspace, consider a roof garden or creating a small garden on your balcony. You will need to be sure your balcony will carry the weight of planters. If you would like advice on urban roof gardens contact a  specialist in this area of landscaping.

If your potential views are of rural landscape, your options are more varied. You could possibly reconstruct the façade opposite the view by adding a deck or knocking out some bricks and add a window or two. You could even take out some internal walls and change the orientation of the rooms to take advantage of the view. Get advice from a registered builder or renovation and remodeling specialists.
