Swishing wind turbines causing nuisance  

New concern over the impact of the Conisholme wind farm was sounded at a full meeting of East Lindsey District Council.

According to the authority’s vice chairman, Coun Robert Palmer, the swishing of the rotating turbine blades is clearly audible to residents in Conisholme and Grainthorpe.

He said: “It’s eerie. Depending on wind direction, it’s not a sound you could sleep over.”

The council was heavily criticised in an independent report into how the planning application for the windfarm was handled. It is seeking to address the concerns, but, as yet, specialist training for officers and councillors – as recommended – has not been implemented despite a March 31 deadline.

The planning officers involved in the controversial development have now left the authority.
