Wind turbines High Court hearing: Julian Davis claims anti-wind farm circus suggestion is ‘typical’ of his family’s treatment  

Credit:  www.spaldingtoday.co.uk 18 July 2011 ~~

Julian Davis, who is suing over alleged “nightmare” noise nuisance from nearby wind turbines has hit back against claims he and his wife “exaggerated” how bad it was.

Mr Davis told London’s High Court he “couldn’t live with the noise” from turbines near their former home, Grays Farm, Deeping St Nicholas – which the couple say they had to move out of four years ago.

Mr Davis and his wife, Jane, are suing landowners RC Tinsley Ltd, Nicholas Watts, Fenland Windfarms Ltd and Fenland Green Power Cooperative Ltd.

They are seeking either a permanent injunction to shut down the turbines or damages of up to £2.5million.

Giving evidence before Mr Justice Hickinbottom on Friday, Mr Davis said suggestions the couple were part of an “anti-wind farm circus” summed up the way they had been treated.

Peter Harrison QC, for the couple, said they had been accused of “travelling the country, misleading the public and exaggerating any effects they may have experienced”.

Mr Davis told the judge: “These were the exact sentiments we were subjected to.”

Asked if he could live with the noise, he said: “No, I couldn’t”.

Mr Davis also said he was “shocked” when the couple were asked if they were receiving any funding towards their legal costs from anti-wind farm campaigners.

The defendants in the High Court case deny creating any noise nuisance and suggest that the couple may have become “unduly sensitive” to the sound of the turbines.

The hearing continues.
