Effect of wind farms on house prices in PE31 8SF

How will the price of my house be affected by the building of one wind farm (5 turbines) 1.5km and 100m high and another one (6 turbines) 126.5m high and 2km away. Both are in view of the house? The building of the wind turbines will be completed in 2014.

  • No, there will be no effect on your house price. If you wish to verify this you can look at the change in house prices in other areas of East Anglia with new wind turbines. Some areas are actually showing higher than average price increases.

  • Hi, It would totally depend on the distance from your home. How close are they to your home?

  • Hi, Like with solar panels and all other renewable technologies like this, there are a few schools of thought with regards to the effect that will be had on house prices because they are still a relatively new phenomenon. While some believe that there is no effect on the value of a home by being near to the windfarms that are becoming more and more common across the UK, there are others who believe they create a substantial fall in property prices. In fact, a recent report has even claimed that they could push prices down by as much as eight per cent. Many thanks, Scott
