Bill Cash MP calls for Government to review noise and distance limits over wind turbines

Press release 18/12/09

In response to recent reports on wind turbines relating to noise-induced health concerns and setback distances from housing, Bill Cash MP said:
 
“The recent media reports suggest that the Government may have ignored health concerns related to significantly high noise levels resulting from wind turbines because they had set an unsuitably high limit. This serious concern must be answered. 
 
“Noise levels of 33 decibel limit were ignored because Government officials used a very high 43 decibel limit instead.
 
“I have written to Ed Miliband, as this cannot be an acceptable way to pursue these schemes, which are also greatly inefficient, uneconomic and packed with subsidies.”
 
Mr. Cash also continued to raise the issue of setback distances in his letter to the Secretary of State for Energy & Climate Change.
