Question Title

VISUAL IMPACT OF WIND FARMS IN BRITAIN

Introduction

Question Title

Wind farms are a feature of the British rural landscape and their numbers may increase in future. 

A key issue is their visual impact on the landscape - i.e. their effect on the aesthetics of the landscape. Communities have objected to wind farms for this reason.

This project aims to identify factors which affect the perception of the visual impact of wind farms and see if this can be predicted.

This project contains a total of 46 scenes, 23 without a wind farm and 23 with the wind farm.  They are shown in random order. The wind farms shown are located in England, Wales and southern Scotland.

No qualifications or experience are needed but participants should be at least 18 years old.

At the end you are given an opportunity to comment and to request a summary of the survey’s results.
