Comment on the study.

If house prices around Crystal Rig were not affected 7 miles away it tells you nothing about house prices aoround Woodlane where homes might have 10 turbines closer than one mile.

House prices and Planning

While the value of their property is of major concern to homeowners it is not actually a planning consideration. In other words planners will not take it into account when deciding whether to approve plans for a wind farm.

Compare Crystal Rig and Woodlane Wind Farm sites.
