It is believed a twisted blade was to blame for excess noise being reported at the Bradworthy wind farm site.Torridge district council was made aware of the problem, and parish councillors were told at their last meeting it had finally been resolved.
Residents had complained of excess noise coming from the site at Forestmoor which is home to North Devon’s first set of wind turbines.
Torridge said the environmental protection team was contacted by the parish council and one of its officers visited the site confirming noise levels were higher than normal.
The council got in touch with turbine operators, Energie Kontor, and carried out follow-up visits.
Both the district and parish councils say noise levels have now returned to normal.
