Wind industry spin
The wind industry have well rehearsed presentations to tell you house prices are not affected by turbine, but they never provide evidence to show no impact on homes closer than 2km.
Common sense says that putting a 400 foot industrial structure near to a house in the county will reduce its value.
If pylons reduce property value then so must turbines which are twice as high.
An in-depth study of property prices near to over head transmission lines and electricity pylons showed significant reduction.
In which case you would expect a turbine twice as high to reduce property values.
The research was carried out by the same team that conducted some of the research into wind turbines. It is surprising that the authors of the report were able to reach such a clear conclusion about pylons and not find one for turbines which are larger and more obtrusive.

This is not just a UK problem - as our case studies show.
