North Hambleton Windfarm Action Group

We heard today from North Hambleton Wind Farm Group, in Yorkshire, set up to protect
Appleton Wiske, Deighton, East Rounton, Great Smeaton, Hornby, Little Smeaton, Picton, Welbury, West Rounton and our countryside.

They have an informative and interesting website, and they have recently set up a petition on the Downing Street Website, as follows:

"We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to set up an independent working party of acousticians and medical experts to fully explore the problems of wind turbine noise and the health consequences as ETSU-R-97, the measurement presently used, is invalid and does not protect our communities from unbearable noise pollution."


Having met property owners whose lives have been made intolerable by wind turbine noise, I am happy to endorse this. I am also pleased to see another MP, William Hague, has shown his support for this group.
