Noise tests continue at wind farm site  

Credit:  North Devon Journal, www.thisisdevon.co.uk 5 April 2012 ~~

Sound testing at Fullabrook Wind Farm will continue until Monday although the company behind the wind farm has already said they have enough data at three locations.

The testing of how much noise the 22 turbines make began on February 20 as part of the wind farm’s planning conditions.

Initially, the testing was to last a month but people living close to the turbines were concerned this would not be long enough to capture every wind speed and direction.

Following the concerns North Devon Council, which is overseeing the testing, confirmed the monitors would stay at the 12 sites for as long as necessary.

Although ESB International, the company behind the wind farm, said that there was enough data at three sites – Luscott, Crackaway and Greenhill – the monitors won’t be removed until the council gives the go ahead.

The council said: “We don’t yet know when the assessment will be complete, as it is too early to say.

“As to what information will be made public, this will be down to the council’s senior management closer to the time.”

ESB has submitted preliminary data to the council’s noise expert, who is considering the information and will advise the council of his opinion over the next few weeks.
