New battle against wind turbines: Working Group wants wind developers to take into account wind concerns

Grey Highlands Council will consider a bylaw on Monday to freeze any new permits for construction of industrial wind turbines in the municipality.

It is part of the regular council meeting which begins at 5 PM.

CAO Dan Best says called the “Grey Highlands Renewable Energy Working Group” wants any proposed projects to take into account the concerns of nearby residents about any impact on their health.

Medical Officer of Health Doctor Hazel Lynn presented a report just over a year ago, that looked at various studies around the world, on the health complaints from people living near Giant wind turbines.

Her conclusion was that these are not NIMBYs, these are people affected by these things.

Doctor Lynn also recommended Health Canada do more research on the association between wind turbine noise and human distress.

Best says the bylaw under consideration would have to be considered by any company proposing a wind farm in Grey Highlands.

However, the municipality has little say in those projects as provincial legislation would trump anything Grey Highlands does to stop new developments.

The municipality has declared itself an unwilling host for new wind farms.
