Summary Previous research has identified varying degrees of stigma attached to high voltage overhead transmission lines (HVOTLs) depending upon characteristics such as visibility, size, location and the potential impact on house value. In addition to HVOTLs there are other common types of infrastructure, namely mobile phone towers and windfarms, that are also large highly visible
structures and can exhibit similar characteristics. These similarities include varying levels of visibility from properties in the immediate vicinity, a high general profile in society and varying perceptions from surrounding residents about possible side effects. This research broadens the framework originally developed to study HVOTLs to encompass mobile phone towers and windfarms. It undertakes a literature review of research in this area and proposes a research methodology for identifying and quantifying the varying levels of stigma attached to these three forms of infrastructure. The final results will enable the resulting effect on property values to be better understood, and assist developers to fully understand their effect on devaluing land prices.
