We live in a rural location and they are applying for wind turbines

We live in a quiet, beautiful and tranquil part of the country near Hunmanby North Yorkshire. Attached is a small campsite. There is a proposal to erect 14 wind turbines twice the height of York Minster within 700metres of our land. Can you tell me whether the value of my property will depreciate and roughly how much, as development company say it will not depreciate and I beg to differ as our patrons state they will not return. Thank you, Karen

  • It really depends of what the impact of theses turbines will be. For example it they interupt the view from your property and/or land then the chances are that the value will be appreciated. Turbines can also be quite loud, the noise could also have a detrimental effect. The exact value of any depreciation can't really be guaged without detailed information regarding the plans.

  • I don't think wind turbines would look as bad as an ugly caravan site though, not to mention other factors that caravan sites create such as noise pollution and more traffic. Therefore I'm sure people would rather live next to a wind farm than a caravan site.
