Windfarms can have big impacts on communities. Not all of those impacts are considered by the planning authorities. Noise, house-prices, health issues, and so forth, are not considered relevant under existing planning law. However, they can be discussed! – and may become relevant in the future. Developers need to consider certain aspects such as noise, and may be involved in litigation in the future if they do not. Click below for more information. Please let us have links to articles which you think are relevant, or give us your comments or insights.
