FOI 1379
Information provided


Under the Freedom of Information Act, I would like to know how many official complaints, if any, your council has received in each of the last three financial years (April 2008 - March 2011) about apparent noise pollution caused by wind turbine(s).

In your response, please could you also indicate, where possible, cases in which a number of complaints have been made by the same individuals.

In the case of each complaint, please could you indicate the location of the turbine(s) being complained about and, if possible, the name of the facility.

Please could you also detail any action taken by your council in response to the complaints - eg, an investigation launched by officers, steps taken against turbine(s) operators to ensure noise is reduced, ordering turbine(s) to be shut down... and so on.


The council has not received any complaints regarding noise from Wind Turbines in the last 3 years.
