Appeal to delay wind farm case is refused  

Credit:  www.spaldingtoday.co.uk 20 June 2011 ~~

An appeal to postpone a High Court case into wind farm noise at Deeping St Nicholas for six months has been turned down.

The court has decided proceedings into an alleged noise nuisance by eight turbines will go ahead as planned next month on July 4.

The appeal had been made by representatives of Richard Tinsley, of Mill Farm, Holywell, Stamford; Nicholas Watts, of Vine House Farm, Deeping St Nicholas; Fenland Windfarms Ltd and Fenland Green Power Co-operative, who own the land where the turbines are positioned, and run them.

It is understood the group wanted to carry out further monitoring at the site before the case was heard in court.

Jane Davis, who has taken the case to the High Court with husband Julian, said she was “immensely relieved” with the decision.

The case, once it begins, will be open to the public. A number of local witnesses are expected to be called to give evidence.

Mr and Mrs Davis, who lived at the neighbouring Grays Farm, claim that noise nuisance from the 59-metre turbines has blighted their lives since the wind farm went “live” in June 2006.

They say noise includes low frequency humming, swishing, ripping, flashing, mechanical turning, background roar, and “helicopter noise” at various times of the day and night.

The noise was so bad, they say, that they “abandoned” their home in 2007 and moved into rented accommodation in Spalding.

The Davis family have also complained to the Ombudsman about South Holland District Council’s failure to take appropriate action against the wind farm, and to the Parliamentary Ombudsman.

High Court proceedings are due to run for two weeks, until July 15.
