Village noise saga goes on in Palgrave  

Credit:  Diss Express, www.dissexpress.co.uk 6 May 2012 ~~

Residents in Palgrave say work to decrease the noise from the village community centre’s controversial wind turbine has not worked.

The turbine, which provides the Upper Rose Lane centre with electricity, was switched off for two months while the community centre worked with Mid Suffolk District Council, turbine manufacturers GAIA and the installation company to reduce the noise emitted by the 24-metre high turbine.

But parish councillor Neil Weston said since it was switched on again last week, it has continued to cause nearby householders distress.

Adrian Wilmhurst, who lives near the turbine, added: “The noise issue has not been resolved at all. We feel there hasn’t been an improvement.”

A spokesperson for the district council said: “Over the last few months, our Environmental Health team have been monitoring the noise of the wind turbine following complaints from local residents.

“Due to the noise levels, we asked the community centre to switch it off whilst necessary works where undertaken to reduce the noise.

“Following a recent visit, we have seen that the centre has made significant improvements and that the noise from turbine is no longer classed as a statutory nuisance.

“We have been made aware that some residents still feel strongly about noise and amenity issues, and are considering these issues as part of our ongoing investigation.”

The Diss Express was unable to contact anyone from the centre.
