  • The draft Revisions to the 2006 Wind Energy Development Guidelines are now out for consultation with submissions being sought by February 21st 2014.
    The revisions are quite specific focusing on noise and shadow flicker with the remainder of the guidelines to remain unchanged.
    The revised noise and shadow flicker sections of the Wind Energy Development Guidelines being put out for public consultation today proposes;

    The setting of a more stringent absolute noise limit (day and night) of 40 decibels (dB) for future wind energy developments. This limit is an outdoor limit, in general the reduction of noise levels between the outside of a dwelling and inside would be approximately 10 decibels.

    A mandatory setback of 500 metres between a wind turbine and the nearest dwelling for amenity considerations.

    A condition be attached to all future planning permissions for wind farms to ensure that there will be no shadow flicker at any dwelling within 10 rotor diameters of a wind turbine. If shadow flicker does occur, the wind energy developer or operator will be required to take necessary measures, such as turbine shut down for the period necessary, to eliminate the shadow flicker.

    The guidelines are intended to finalised next year.
