Windfarm noise protection call: “Health and wellbeing” affected by noise from windfarms  

Credit:  ITV News, www.itv.com 30 May 2012 ~~

The Assembly’s Petitions Committee report came after a consultation on the impact of noise from windfarm turbines. It received a large number of responses from the village of Gwyddgrug in Carmarthenshire, and visited two windfarms in the area.

We were told that some people no longer enjoyed being outside in their own gardens, others were afraid that their homes would be devalued and some had sleep problems leading to mental and physical health issues. The health and wellbeing of people living in Wales is a top priority and it is vital that residents living close to wind turbines are protected. The Committee recognises the importance of securing green energy sources to meet our energy needs in the future, however, this should not be done at the expense of people’s health.

– William Powell AM, Chair of the Petitions Committee

The report comes as a response to a thousand-signature petition submitted to the National Assembly.

We call upon the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to pass a statute controlling the noise nuisance from wind turbines during anti-social hours. We ask for the implementation of respite periods during which time turbines would be switched off.
