Valuers are often instructed to advise on residential properties in close proximity to power lines, wind turbines or cell towers. This chapter introduces the themes of the book and considers the environment within which valuers need to examine such structures. It introduces the notions of risk and stigma, both actual and perceived, and the role that the media plays in representing these. The chapter also gives a brief background to the valuer's toolkit of methods that could be used to evaluate impacts. These methods are demonstrated in more detail throughout the book as potential means to provide advice to clients. © 2013 Bond, Sims and Dent.
