Summary

This chapter provides a commentary on risk and risk perception as a background to the main case studies in this book. It identifies the potential hazards that exist with regard to HVOTLs, wind turbines and cell towers along with consideration of the effect that perceptions have on the quantification of impact on proximate properties. The study of risk therefore involves both technical and perceptual analysis. Valuers may need to take account of both the scientific evidence and the manner in which the potential risk is communicated when they prepare advice to clients.
