MP’s call for wind farm study

Brigg MP Andrew Percy is calling for a government study into the effects of wind farms on people living near them.

This comes after the Canadian government made plans to do a study of a possible connection between noise generated by the turbines and adverse health effects reported by people living close to them.

Mr Percy has written to ministers asking them to consider working with the Canadian Government to produce a joint study.

He said: “Many people living close to these giant wind farms report health impacts including depression, sleep disturbance and behaviour changes and it is important we have a proper study of these impacts.

“I have long believed that we need to set strict limits on how close these farms can be built to properties and last year sponsored a Bill in Parliament to set minimum distances.”
