A wind farm developer has withdrawn a leaflet claiming wind turbines do not affect house prices following a complaint to the Advertising Standards Authority.
The move follows an objection from an anti–wind farm campaigner who complained about material handed out by Wind Prospect Developments Ltd at an exhibition on a proposed 12–turbine development in Midlothian, Scotland.
The leaflet, produced by the industry trade body RenewableUK, claimed that it was a “myth” that wind farms reduced the value of nearby houses.
