Wind turbines should be switched off occasionally so people living nearby can have some peace and quiet, urges a petition to the Welsh assembly.
More than 1,000 people have backed a call for the Welsh Government to legislate on the noise created by wind turbines.
They want “respite periods” imposed on all turbines above 1.3 megawatts.
The petition is be handed to William Powell, who chairs the petitions committee, on the Senedd steps.
The petitioners are calling for the length of time that turbines are switched off to vary according to how close they are to individual homes and communities.
Wind farms continue to cause controversy, and earlier this month First Minster Carwyn Jones called planning decisions on large wind farms a “slap in the face” for Wales.
He has told AMs that Welsh Government planning guidance had been overruled by Westminster, raising the prospect that large onshore wind farms could be built anywhere in Wales.
