Heard before the Joint Commissioners, 8th-26th March 2007, Palmerston North
“My evidence consists of four areas of concern.
- “The first is a presentation of a survey of Visual and Noise effects experienced by residents currently living close to the existing wind farms in the Tararua and Ruahine ranges.
- “The second aspect is a review of literature on health effects, other than hearing loss, from exposure to noise and vibration as well as the transmission of noise and vibration into buildings.
- “The third aspect is addressing the suggestion that adverse impacts of noise can be satisfactorily remedied by modifications to homes. Particularly it addresses an assessment of the effectiveness of sealing a home to stop noise intrusions.
- “The fourth topic is solar energy and energy efficiency as alternative means of addressing energy supply issues.”
