A seminar on ‘Wind Turbine Noise’ is taking place at the Radisson Blu in Argyle Street, Glasgow on Friday September 22 at 7pm.
World renowned researcher and doctor Professor Mariana Alves-Pereira is the main speaker and academics from Australia and other countries will be attending. The wind industry is also sending delegates.
As appeared in last week’s ‘News’. the North Ayrshire planning committee opposed SSE’s two year extension for Hunterston’s turbine facility, due to it being ‘contrary to planning policy’ and inappropriate in design and scale to its surroundings.
SSE’s appeal to Scottish ministers resulted in North Ayrshire Council no longer being able to determine the application, and instead the matter will be decided by Scottish ministers next month.
Fairlie community council chairman Rita Holmes is urging locals to attend next Friday’s event, and said: “It is taking place six days before the Scottish Government Reporter does his site visit to Hunterston and then makes his decision by the 13th October. This is not an anti wind energy event, but aimed at enabling communities, local authorities, public health officials and wind farm developers an opportunity to learn more about infrasound and low frequency noise from wind turbines.”
Melvin Grosvenor, of the UK Independent Noise Working Group (INWG) will also introduce “How Wind Turbines Create Infrasound” by Dr John Yelland, Independent Acoustician. Both gave a talk in Fairlie Village Hall earlier this year on wind turbine noise.
