Abstract
    There is a big concern on the impact on the seascape of the planned offshore wind farms in the Belgian part of the North Sea, This study describes the preparatory work done for the monitoring of the impact on the seascape. The main goals of the sociological landscape study is to see what people’s opinions are on the existing wind farm with 6 wind turbines and their opinion on the planned extension of the wind farm and the completion of other wind farms. For achieving these goals an inquiry will be held amongst people regularly staying at the coast. The landscape imagery focuses on simulations of the planned wind farms, they are used in the inquiries. As a previous study is available on peoples opinion on renewables and wind energy it will be possible to compare peoples opinion of today (when the wind farm exist at sea) with that of some years ago (when the wind farm wasn’t built yet).
