House Prices / Saleability
- The loss of amenity in an area will have an adverse effect on property values.
- Much depends on proximity and visibility. Clearly the prices of nearby houses in sight of the turbines would be affected.
- The wider effect is likely to be linked to the extent to which the presence of the turbines changes the character of the landscape. It is expected that the negative effect on the landscape would be profound.
- Would you prefer to buy a rural house in a village with six of the biggest wind turbines in Britain looming over it or one in a rural village without the turbines?
