Canberra Liberals to repeal solar access laws if party wins 2016 election via @ABCNews

Overshadowing of a typical house at noon in the suburb of Wright in Canberra.

The Canberra Liberals have vowed to repeal the ACT Government's solar access laws if they win government at next year's election.

The laws, introduced in 2013, are designed to ensure new houses are positioned to maximise the benefits of natural sunlight and reduce heating costs.

They also prevent a development or extension from casting too much shade on a neighbouring home.

The Canberra Liberals tried to block the changes to the planning regulations, but they were passed with the support of the Greens…

Cheers, Ralph
