Overview The background The research question Research methods Results
The antecedents of HVOTL provision The post placement impacts The effect on individuals The impact on communities The effect on homeowners Background
Theoretical Framework HVOTL as a technological hazard and risk Externalities Risk assessment Perceived or real threat Perceptions to the homeowner Real estate behaviour and impact on prices
What has been done before? Overseas studies on post placement impact Overseas studies on public perceptions No published studies in Australia A lack of a comprehensive framework and model – antecedents of HVOTL provision as well post placement impacts. Specified facilitative models needed to assist in analysing the problem comprehensively.
The research questions What are the causes of variation in the homeowners risk perceptions and reactions when electricity suppliers propose new HVOTL infrastructure? What are the effects of HVOTL provision on the homeowners property values?
Methodology Focus groups Public telephone surveys Quantitative studies of possible post placement impacts on property value
Telephone Survey Telephone numbers were taken from three stratified sets of postcodes from a computerised White Pages (residential directory for Queensland) to ensure that sufficient numbers in the urban, peri-urban and rural sub- samples were obtained for purposes of comparison. Systematic random sampling was used, in that every n th telephone number was dialled, on a rotational basis, until the quota was achieved. The n th number was determined by dividing the telephone numbers available by the required quota. A demographically representative cross-section of the population normally falls into place by employing this method of telephone contact. Respondents were screened for home ownership status and then neighbourhood by asking whether where they lived could be described as: A built-up urban area, living close to neighbours Peri-urban acreage or semi-rural living A truly rural area, as in living on a farm

The property sale prices within 50m distance from the HVTOL (Red marked) are 20% less than the mean house price within Eight Mile Plains. The distance between 50 and 100m shows approximately 15% lower than the mean price. The mean property price between 100 and 200m is $370,000, around 7% lower than the mean sale price. However, it seems that there is little impact on the property prices if distances over 200m Descriptive Statistics
