dc.description.abstractThere appears to be widespread assumption that there is a 'silent majority' of people who support proposals but do not make submissions, and that those who do make submissions tend to be opposed and therefore do not reflect the true state of public opinion. The New Zealand Wind Energy Association (a membership based wind industry association) suggested that it would be useful to examine whether this was actually the case, in respect of wind farms in particular. As researchers we are also interested in the broader question of why non-submitters might no be participating in formal planning processes, so we developed our research to address two questions: (a) how do non-submitters' perspectives of proposed wind farms differ from those of submitters; and (b) why do non-submitters not make submissions?en_NZ
