Agreement over Fullabrook noise monitoring locations

On Thursday 19 January, a meeting was held between North Devon Council’s Environmental Health team and Planning and Development Service, the wind farm developer ESB (parent company of Devon Wind Power Ltd) and their respective noise experts.

At the meeting, ESB agreed to the council’s request for up to 12 monitoring locations to be set up. This will mean more noise measurements can be collected around the development, allowing for a thorough and robust noise assessment to take place.

The 12 monitoring locations have been selected and we will contact residents shortly to inform them of this. We will then have discussions to secure the necessary permissions to install the monitoring equipment at the specific sites.

Meanwhile, ESB has informed the council that it intends the wind farm to be fully commissioned on 24 January. This will mean noise monitoring can begin shortly afterwards.

      Hi Margaret
      Thanks for your comment. The monitoring will be for a minimum for a month, until we have sufficient data to allow for a thorough assessment.
      As far as technical information is concerned, I will be putting links on the blog to the relevant planning consents on NDC’s planning tracker.
      Pete
